Why fly to Taipei?


Get your vocal chords ready because you are in for karaoke good time if you had into Taipei. That is just a taste of what the city has to offer but it is an indication that the city is a super fun place to be. Any place where people group singing is a collective hobby has got to be a pretty friendly place.

Taipei city is the capital of Taiwan and located in the north of the country. The city is surrounded by two rivers the Keelung and the Xindian rivers. A walk along the banks will give you a great view of the city and bring it all into perspective. Taipei is also home to some beautiful parks as well as natural hot springs, plan a visit for a weekday if you are able since the weekends are extremely busy.

The city is home to beautiful temples as well as churches and mosques, which is a reflection of the diverse make up of the city. A truly inspiring site is the Taipei Confucius Temple. For a taste of history head to the memorial halls dedicated to the city's forefathers. The Sun-Yat-sen Memorial Hall is a great place to learn about the founding father of China. You can also witness the changing of the guard ceremony and tour the various exhibitions.

This is also the city of themed restaurants which may or may not whet your appetite like the Modern Toilet restaurant, the food may not look appetizing but it is quite delicious and the accessories in the place can make a good opportunity for a photo op.

One of the most fantastic thing about Taipei are the night markets. Sure you can buy weird odd touristy things but more importantly is the food. There are mini morsels of everything you an think of from tofu to fried chicken and lovely glazed tomatoes.
