Taichung ©
Known its good weather, Taichung boasts an interesting set of cultural attractions, including many temples showing the development of religious architectural styles in the area and forming focal points for most tours of Taichung.
Get out of town with these interesting Taichung side-trips: Yuchi (Sun Moon Lake & Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village), Hehuan Mountain (Hehuanshan) (in Ren'ai Township) and Butterfly Park (in Nantou). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Gaomei Wetland, experience rural life at Flying Cow Ranch, make a trip to Tunghai University, and wander the streets of Rainbow Village Taichung.

Taipei
Situated in a basin between two mountain ranges, Taipei appeals to tourists with its blend of Asian cultures, living side by side amidst Japanese-era mansions and Taoist temples.
Change things up with these side-trips from Taipei: Keelung River (in Bali), Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) (in Ruifang) and Fulung Beach (in Gongliao). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Taipei Zoo, see the interesting displays at National Palace Museum, pause for some photo ops at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, and don't miss a visit to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail).

To find other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Taipei day trip site .
