Taipei Attractions

Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan, is an exciting metropolis boasting of a rich history and a delightful fusion of different cultures. It is the political and administrative seat of the country as well as an important economic and financial centre. Featuring high-rise buildings, green parks, colonial streets, upscale shops and busy markets, Taipei is buzzing with activity from devout worshippers at temples to young people enjoying a night out in the city. Historically, Taipei's economy was powered by foreign trade. Today, the high-tech manufacturing sector is instrumental in the rapid modernisation of Taipei. It is, however, the combination of the modern world and the colourful past that makes the city appealing to visitors.

Things to do in Taipei

First-time visitors on flights to Taipei will probably remark that the city is a place of contrasts, from tranquil parks to bustling markets. Reflect on life inside quiet temples, look at historic monuments or shop from morning to night. There is enough to keep guests of the city occupied throughout their stay.

When visiting Taipei, be sure to:

  • Make your way to the National Palace Museum, a treasure trove of Chinese art and ceramics
  • Stroll along historic Dihua Street and browse through medicine and antique shops
  • Visit the Bao'an Temple and observe religious rites and festivities
  • Head to the peaceful Confucius Temple and admire its Fujian-styled décor
  • Ride up to The 101 Tower's observatory in the world's fastest lift to see panoramic views of the city
  • Do like the locals do and enjoy gastronomic feasts of food in every corner of the city
  • Discover the Museum of World Religions built to show harmony and cohesion of all beliefs
  • Go to see the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall built in memory of the former president and military leader
