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 Taipei Confucius Temple and Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street). Get a sense of the local culture at National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine and Hsing Tian Kong. Explore Taipei's surroundings by going to YehLiu Geopark (in Wanli), Wufengchi Waterfall (in Jiaoxi) and Danshuei (in Tamsui). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Lanyang Museum, buy something for everyone on your list at Taipei 101, don't miss a visit to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail), and stop by Ximen Red House - Ximending.
