Taiwan’s largest city is packed with temples, monuments, Michelin-starred restaurants and even volcanic hot springs. Here are five things travelers should consider adding to their itinerary when visiting Taipei.
National Palace Museum
This massive museum is home to an astounding collection of art and artifacts numbering around 700,000. They represent 8,000 years of Chinese history and include largescale scrolls, jade jewelry and more — all evacuated in the wake of the Chinese Civil War for fear the Communist army would destroy China’s most prized artifacts.
Taipei 101 Tower
Zoom to the top of Taipei’s tallest building, once the world’s tallest. You’ll be treated to a 360-degree view of the city and surrounding mountains.
On the edge of the city, this stair climb is worth the cardiovascular challenge. Huff to the top — or stop at any of the viewpoints along the way — and you’ll get views over the city from under a dense canopy.
Taipei is famous for its night markets, where street vendors hawk excellent food until late hours. There are several in the city, including the Raohe Street Market, the city’s oldest. You can walk with a cold beer and try dishes like the Fuzhou Black Pepper Bun, oyster vermicelli, stinky tofu, potato spirals and more.
Huashan 1914 Creative Park
This assemblage of former warehouses and industrial spaces has been transformed into a collection of cafés and artisan shops. Visitors buy tea, toys, art, greeting cards and a slew of other artisanal souvenirs.

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
