Taipei is a fascinating mix of old and new. Breathe in perfumed air at traditional temples, or gaze at glittering skyscrapers from Taipei 101 (once the world’s tallest building). Take in the neon lights and fast-paced street shopping at youthful Ximending, or head to world-class department stores for luxury brands with a side of champagne. Then there are the famed night markets full of unbeatable street food – from velvety oyster vermicelli soup to world-famous Taiwanese Bubble Tea.
Explore the city from the comfort of a downtown high-rise, or opt for a boutique Taipei hotel showcasing the talent of local craftsmen. Admire modern works of art in designer lobbies, then chill out on a rooftop pool deck with a passionfruit cocktail.
