    What's not to love about this wonderful city? My parents are from here and I spent eight awesome years living in this great city! There is so much to do, and most importantly, LOTS TO EAT! The island is beautiful if you go to the right places, and people are friendly and love their food. The night markets are really that great and the food is cheap and delicious!

    I love the city for its friendly citizen and the food! From night market food, Michelin star dumpling, infamous ice dessert and bubble tea, Taipei is for sure will please your taste buds. Nom nom nom.

    I had the pleasure to visit Taipei for Business and was pleasantly surprised by all the things this city has to offer. Taipei has a very vibrant night life and tourists get to their taste as well. In my opinion its a shoppers Mecca, offering all kinds of things in all sorts of ways. You may find the things in grand Shopping Malls, as well as late Night Markets. Culture lovers will find some fantastic temples and do not leave Taipei without wandering the Liberty Square.

    Taipei is a really great place to go, super convenient, lot's of nice people, and a huge lot of delicious food in it's night markets. It's also a really modern city, kind of like Tokyo except things are much cheaper in Taipei. Even though Taiwan's looks no bigger than an dot on the map, it's ever changing landscape is still breathtaking as every step I take.

    A small little market that will get you a taste of Taipei night life. It's located on a convenience location next to the famous Longshan Temple.

    Taipei is underrated as a destination, but it is one of my favorite cities. Lots of things to do, and many people here do speak some english (though not as many as in Hong Kong or Singapore). It is very modern, the food is awesome (and inexpensive), and the people are friendly.

    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.

    I've been to Taipei for 3 times and can foresee the 4th and 5th time later on this year, A city not to miss. The brilliant coffee/cafe atmospheres brings it to the spot of one of the coffee paradises in Asia.

    Every time I visit I like it more and more. The food is ridiculous. If not for all the walking, I'd gain 10 pounds per visit.

    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.

    Taipei is the epicenter of action in Taiwan. This country loves Americans. You can get approached with job opportunities to teach English just by walking down the street speaking it (far easier if you are White). Your experience in Taiwan will be shaped by the food you eat. Be open to everything! Eat all the food you can from street vendors. Best soy milk in the world. Incredible street dance community in Taipei, and great dance schools too! My favorites are Lumi, Dance Soul, and Merry Monarch. You will easily fall in love with this city!

Description

Not exactly known as a tourist hotspot, Taipei pleasantly surprises most of its visitors. Though tourism is secondary to a variety of industries as far as Taipei’s major means of productivity, visitors still come in droves. Whether in Taiwan for work, family or vacation, Taipei warrants several days. Taiwan's financial, cultural and governmental capital is home to innumerable museumes, parks, and ancient temples displaying the accomplishments of this tenacious nation. For a landscape that was once dominated by Soviet-era concrete apartment buildings set up to provide a home for refugees, Taipei has come a long way. The skyline of Taipei is modern and skyscraper-laden, capped off by the imposing presence of Taipei 101, the worlds second-tallest building. In adition to the modern architecture, Taipei has the wonderful distinction of being one of the safest cities in the world.
