About the location

Taipei is a unique city where east meets west. Decidedly Asian, but with a western twist. It's a foodie paradise and home to artisan style shaved ice, xiao long bao, boba tea, peanut ice cream sandwiches, and beef noodle soup. There is no shortage of things to do in this city whether or not you have a day long layover or you choose to enjoy a week on this amazing subtropical island. Any English speaker will feel right at home with signs in both English and traditional Mandarin characters. It's the perfect place to dip your toe into the East without feeling completely out of your element and leaves you planning your next trip back. Finishing your must-dos, you'll leave with an even longer to-do list for your next trip. This comprehensive guide is perfect for anyone who is spending a day (or more) in Taipei or wishes to venture beyond the city.
