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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Taipei: Yeh Liu Geo Park (in Wanli), Tamsui (Danshuei & Tamshui Yuandao Guanyin Temple) and Leofoo Village Theme Park (in Guanxi). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Palace Museum, meet the residents at Taipei Zoo, appreciate the history behind National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, and witness a stunning natural landmark at Beitou Hot Spring.
