Info about Taipei

271 km2

Located in the central basin of north Taiwan Island, Taipei, meaning 'North Taiwan', is the island's capital and largest city.
Taipei has over 2,5 million inhabitants with a density of 9,736 inhabitants per square kilometre,
and including the suburbs and metro cities, the city is home to almost 5 million people.
The capital is surrounded by hills and through the city three rivers run: in the north Keelung River, in the west Tamsui River, and in the east Hsintien River.
Taipei became the administrative, cultural and economic centre of Taiwan at the end of 19th century when it gained economic importance due to the trade of tea.
Today, Taipei is a very busy, modern city and is now home to the world's tallest skyscraper, TAIPEI 101 (total height 509 metres-1,671 feet).

Overall Guide : Taipei is really full with great famous attractions and charming sights ready to be visited and discovered. The National Palace Museum, which contains an extensive collection of 700,000 items that illustrate the culture and tradition of China. ... more The Snake Alley, a vibrant and fascinating night market. Shin Kong Life Tower, the second tallest building in Taipei with an observatory on the 46th floor, offers an incredible view of the city and is a real must for everyone who visits the city. Many are the beautiful temples deserving a visit in Taipei, like the Taipei Chingshan Temple, the Taipei Chingshui Temple (also known as the Divine Progenitors Temple), the Taipei Confucius Temple, the Taipei Xingtian Temple and the Taipei Tzuyu Temple. The Presidential Building where, on National Day, large crowds gather to admire the military parades and view the unforgettable display of fireworks and lights leading up during this time. On the city's outskirts, the Yangmingshan National Park has unique volcanic terrain, a rich variety of forest vegetation, and an extensive network of hiking trails.

Overall Guide : Longshan Temple one MRT station behind the the Ximen station. Very Impressive detailed temple with many gods for specially live terms. Has to visited two times. One time at daylight and one time in the night. The details will be... more more impressive in the evening and to become an overview about everything it is better to see the whole temple at daylight.

Overall Guide : A safe and clean city, where people are very nice and helpful, although the price of the hotel is very high but still a nice place to live. The public transport is very good and efficient, the food is nice... more and affordable. Foreigner not so easy to communicate with the local people due to lack of experience to speak with other langages.
