  • Open to public only once a month, with guided tours available. It has been around for almost 120 years with lots of history. Personally, I was more interested in its architecture and the garden. Great place to spend a few hours!

  • National treasure with beautifully preserved building

Taipei offers an impressive selection of accommodation options for every type of budget. For the least expensive rooms, consider areas near the main train station. You can usually find deep discounts online, so it pays to plan at least a month in advance.
