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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Leofoo Village Theme Park and Yilan Luodong Forestry Culture Park. Get out of town with these interesting Taipei side-trips: Jimi Square - Yilan Station (in Yilan City), Wufengchi Waterfall (in Jiaoxi) and Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) (in Ruifang). On the 23rd (Mon), spend a day exploring the natural beauty of Yangmingshan National Park. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at National Palace Museum, don't miss a visit to Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, admire the landmark architecture of Dalongdong Bao An Temple, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Songshan Ciyou Temple.
