Travel Tips for visiting Taipei

Taipei is a great attraction if you are traveling to this small country that is now autonomous. The Taipei 101 tower is the symbol of this bustling city. This dynamism can be felt everywhere, even on your plate when you want to taste some specialties in one of the unusual restaurants or in the markets of the city. The museums are absolutely to be visited, especially the National Palace Museum with countless works of art, or the Chiang Kai-Shek memorial. Finally, you should know that the surroundings of Taipei are ideal for hiking and nature. There is so much to visit in Taipei that you don't know where to start... Taiwan's capital city is full of amazing places to visit, but besides the classic and well known sites, it is the whole city itself that proves to be an attraction in itself. You could spend your whole stay walking around, strolling in the streets, without even setting foot in a museum or a temple, and you would be surprised by everything you could see. This is certainly the best way to experience the magic of Taipei! The political, cultural and economic capital of Taiwan, Taipei is a metropolis built on contrasts. This is what makes it so interesting and charming. A flight to Taipei is both a trip into the future and a return to the past. A city where new technologies and multimedia rub shoulders with ancient temples, colonial mansions and Chinese art collections. Where Taipei 101, the world's second tallest skyscraper, can brush up against tiny altars dedicated to the worship of the ancients. These are two worlds that make up a harmonious city strongly marked by its status inherited from China's history. Taipei is the capital of a territory where democracy, occupation, colonialism and dictatorship resonate with a particular meaning. Hence the modesty and pride of its seven million inhabitants (urban area) who are aware of the path they have taken. This city, which has one of the highest population densities in the world, is like an anthill. Everyone goes about their business without encroaching on their neighbors. Contrasts and diversities are the key words even within this very mixed population. Proof of this melting pot, Taipei is a city where Buddhists, Taoists, Confucians and Christians live together. Until now, the Taiwanese capital has been mainly frequented by businessmen, but it is now worth a trip for pleasure. Booking a hotel in Taipei will allow you to appreciate the fabulous wealth of this city, which was already coveted by the Portuguese colonists.
