    Taiwan trip to avoid the summer period may 3 to 10. Hot and humid in the High Street, it is hard to carry around an unpleasant figure. What is the distance from downtown Taipei's largest portal offers a wide variety of people, restaurants, shopping centers, but a lot of people gather as much heat badly.

Where to stay in Taipei

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. If you prefer to play it safe and don't mind paying a top price, go for one of the city's four- or five-star hotels, most of which offer quick access to popular tourist areas and some of the best shopping and dining spots.
