Taipei, Taiwan

— 5 nights

City of Azaleas

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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Hsing Tian Kong and Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street). Get a sense of the local culture at National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine and Lanyang Museum. Explore Taipei's surroundings by going to Danshuei (in Tamsui), Wufengchi Waterfall (in Jiaoxi) and YehLiu Geopark (in Wanli). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Taipei Confucius Temple, explore the activities along Meihua Lake, don't miss a visit to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail), and browse the eclectic array of goods at Raohe Street Night Market.
