Unbeknown to most travellers, Taipei has the activity, history and charm of great Asian cities like Bangkok and Hong Kong. Its buildings scrape the sky, its monuments are historic and its streets are bustling. But where it differs is that it is relatively free of the tourist crowds. The secrets of the city aren't well known yet, leaving those willing to give Taipei a chance to choose their own Asian adventure.
Though not typically a tourist hub, Taipei is inherently tourist friendly. Transport is clean and efficient. The city's 12 districts are all considered to be reasonably safe. There are no wrong parts of town, leaving the biggest challenge for tourists to be the language barrier.
Once you've mastered your way around, Taipei has plenty of sites to see. Taiwan's capital is home to the bamboo-like Taipei 101, the second tallest skyscraper in the world. The city's National Theater and Concert Hall is another prized landmark of Taipei. Built in 1987, the hall was the first of its kind to be built in Asia and remains a popular establishment today, hosting both local and international artists and performers.
Delving further back into Taipei's history is the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall which pays homage to Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the Republic of China's National Father. Another of Taipei's famous monuments is the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, which is in memory of the former President of the Republic of China and features iconic architecture.
In addition to landmarks and monuments, Taipei's culture is worthy of exploration. Take part in a traditional tea ceremony, dine at a quirky themed restaurant or embrace the city's favourite past time - karaoke.
