What an amazing city! Much more westernized than mainland china and more affordable and land than Hong Kong! What a perfect combo! No wonder people love traveling here! Although a bit difficult to get around if you don't read or speak Chinese, still a muay visit destination if you love food, nightlife and nature!

For me, Taipei was like a better version of Chinese city. I felt much more comfortable in Taipei than any other big cities in China. Taipei is super clean and modern. People were really nice. In some way, Taipei was similar as Hong Kong, in some day. It's culturally interesting, and comfortable.

There is much to see and do but what makes Taipei so amazing is the friendliness of the people. Just look as though you're confused or lost and someone will immediately come over and offer to help. Or, stranded without an umbrella - someone will offer you shelter under their own. It's impossible not to love the city - unless perhaps while driving.

Although it's one of the relatively "forgotten" travel destinations in Asia, Taipei is a must visit. The city features incredible food (everything from night markets to fine dining), nightlife, museums (particularly the national palace museum that has art/antiques that rival what you'll see in Beijing's Forbidden City) and very friendly people.

5 places to go in Taipei:
1) Din Tai Fung -- try to make reservations in advance, if not stand in line
2) Shilin Night Market -- have dinner here, bring cash
3) W Hotel -- the Chinese restaurant upstairs has awesome hand cut beef noodle soup. Recommend to make reservations. Grab drinks in lobby afterwards
4) Marquee/Spark/Myst/Barcode -- pregame here
5) CHESS CLUB -- absolute hands down the best place to be (after 2am)

Taipei is a city of contrasts. You'll ride rusty buses with plasma TVs installed inside. One pocket of the city may look completely impoverished. Then you'll turn a corner and see gleaming architecture and the latest gadgets and fashions. The place is a collision of old and new. Both peculiar and modern, troubling and impressive. Night markets buzzing with life. Subways racing above and below, everywhere. It is both gritty and sleek. I love Taipei for being the awkward and magical beauty it is.
