Taipei
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.

Change things up with these side-trips from Taipei: Dongshan (Meihua Lake & Dongshan River Forest Park), Fulung Beach (in Gongliao) and Jimi Square - Yilan Station (in Yilan City). There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at National Center for Traditional Arts.
