Vibrant Metropolis

Taiwan's charming capital is a modern and remarkably diverse metropolis, infused with Chinese, Japanese and Western influences that can be seen in its food, culture, arts and architecture. Experience a kaleidoscopic world of fascinating contrasts, where temples stand next to gleaming skyscrapers, highbrow boutiques vie with thronging night markets, and world-class restaurants co-exist alongside a lively street food scene. Travel just minutes beyond the city center though and you’ll find yourself transported to a tranquil oasis of hot springs, lush mountains and tea plantations.
