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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Taipei Zoo and Leofoo Village Theme Park. Change things up with a short trip to Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) in Ruifang (about 46 minutes away). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of National Palace Museum, don't miss a visit to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail), appreciate the history behind Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, and buy something for everyone on your list at Taipei 101.
