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.
Explore Taipei's surroundings by going to Ruifang (Cyuanji Temple, Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street), &more) and YehLiu Geopark (in Wanli). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of National Palace Museum, appreciate the history behind National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, don't miss a visit to Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, and identify plant and animal life at YOLO Taiwan.

For maps, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, use the Taipei trip site.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Taipei. August in Taipei sees daily highs of 39°C and lows of 31°C at night. On the 22nd (Sat), you're off to Kaohsiung.
