Never forget to put Taipei in your itinerary. Although small, this city offers more than what you can ask for especially when it comes to lush greens and state-of-the-art technology. From lines of stores selling different kind of things like electronics and other modern gadgets to several parks and hot springs to its very tall skyscraper, Taipei is surely a city worth visiting for.
If you’re a first time travelers to this beautiful city don’t forget to check out the magnificent Taipei 101, this second (2nd) tallest architecture in the world is standing proud at more than 1700 feet. Brace yourself when you step in the elevator because it will take you to the 90th floor in less than a minute. This glorious building also gives you a full-view of the whole Taipei when you visit the observatory at the 91st-floor. Still have enough adrenaline? Then check out the Ferris wheel at the Miramar Entertainment Center. Like the Taipei 101, the Ferris wheel also gives visitors the best view of the city from morning till night.
The Museums in Taipei are also great spots to learn more about the aboriginal culture. The National Palace Museum for example has around 700,000 relics that date back to the ancient Chinese history. You can also visit the Presidential Building for a more in-depth learning experience about Taiwan’s government history. Taipei is also bustling with beaches and hot springs to your utmost pleasure.
Of course you’ll never see enough of Taipei if you haven’t been hopping from one shopping stalls to another. The city has an overflowing line of stalls that sell different kinds of electronics. If you’re shopping for souvenirs and exquisite items to bring home to, then the Old Dihua Street is your best bet. Exotic local flowers can be found at the Chienkou Flower Market and the Shilin Night Market is the best place for authentic Chinese snacks.
Taipei is not an expensive city but if you want to get the best out of your money then check out several hostel selections and get a place to stay for as low as 13 USD a day. The night market also offers great selection of affordable authentic noodles to satisfy your palate.
