Taipei, Taiwan’s capital city, offers a fascinating history and culture, highly developed infrastructure, and the buzz of constant activity that comes with a big population… Yet it’s often overlooked in favor of places like Singapore, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. This is a mistake.
Taipei embeds technology into life in ways you didn’t realize were possible until you visit… But this hasn’t sterilized its culture. Amid all modernity, pockets of the ancient endure, like the centuries-old Longshan Temple or the City Gates that date to the Qing Dynasty.
Night markets, parks, and shopping districts give a glimpse of Taipei’s edge. It also has museums, galleries, landmarks, parks, temples, a zoo, hiking trails, and hot springs to offer you… In short, this city deserves to be noticed just as much as its neighbors.
If you’re looking for a peace and quiet, Taipei probably isn’t for you. The pace of life here is rapid, bordering on frantic. On the other hand, if you’re excited by the breakneck speed at which innovation is taking place in this part of the world, it could be perfect for you.SKU: OHR-TAIPEI-TAIWAN
