WE ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING:
Taipei has some of the most fascinating places of worship in the world, but that's not what the city's is all about!
Check out some of the amazing attractions, that are definitely worth seeing, when visiting:
This magnificent sanctuary dates since 1925, and it is an unmissable sight. It is the home to the solemn Confucius' birthday celebration. It is a tranquil retreat from the commotion of the city, featuring sweeping roofs, subtle design, quiet parks and ponds.
It is 200 years old and can be found right across from Confucius Temple. Visitors will see here dragons and other mythological creatures that watch from the ceiling and walls, and worshipers who feed the gods with bags of sugar and cans of pop. A Taoist priest usually performs a short ritual around 11am on Saturdays.
National Palace Museum
It is, without doubt, a definitely "must" for any Taipei visitor. The museum features some of the oldest Chinese artifacts that exist on this planet!
Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (CKS)
No visit to Taipei is complete without seeing this imposing landmark. Sitting at the end of an expansive plaza, this is where locals and visitors gather at all times of the day. It is an unbeatable spot for photography, so be sure to bring your camera!
Another fabulous spot for photography, especially during night time! It is situated on Ketagalan Boulevard, between CKS Memorial Hall and the presidential palace.
This magnificent architectural jewel was the world's tallest building, as certified by the Guinness Book of Records, until 2009, when it was superseded. Rising at more than 1671 feet (509m) in the air, although, it is now the world's second tallest structure, it is still a major people drawer and it is, for sure, definitely worth seeing.
Shilin Night Market
It is the city's biggest and best night market, but, it is not just for shopping. it is an entire cultural experience that should not be missed by any visitor to the city.
Covering approximately 165 hectares, the zoo in Taipei is home to numerous happy local animal residents, such as the flying fox, Asiatic Black Bear and the Chinese Pangolin. A day at the zoo is a wonderful relaxing and fun experience, especially if accompanied on the trip by the family.
Flying to Taipei
The closest airport to Taipei City is Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.
To reach the city, from the airport, there are four transportation options: bus, high speed rail, taxi, and pre-arranged sedan. An MRT line is under construction, but it will not be completed until June 2013.
The express airport buses can cost anywhere between NT$120 and NT$150, depending on the company, the train is NT$160, and a one-way pre-arranged sedan fare between the airport and Taipei will cost at the minimum NT$1300-$1500.
The Taipei Metro, commonly referred to as MTR, has a metro and light rail system based on advanced VAL and Bombardier technology. Fares are between NT$20 and NT$65 for one-way trips around town. Stations and trains are clearly identified in English.
Taipei has a very efficient bus service. Plus, all buses display information in English, therefore, making it easy for foreigners to find their way around in the city. Payment can be made by cash (NT$15) or EasyCard (see "metro" listing) for each section that the bus passes through.
The taxi services in Taipei are extremely numerous and represent the most flexible way to get around (if you're not on a budget, that is). Taxis are metered, with higher rates for night (an additional NT$20 over the meter). Tipping is neither necessary nor expected.
There are bullet trains which connect Taipei with the west coast cities of Banciao, Hsinchu, Taoyuan, Taichung, Chiayi, and Tainan, terminating at Zuoying (Kaohsiung). Traveling by rail means cutting the travel times by 60% or more from what they normally would be on a bus or conventional train.
