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.
Step out of Taipei to go to Ruifang and see Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street), which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Palace Museum, make a trip to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail), appreciate the history behind Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, and wander the streets of Ximending.
