7 Days in Taipei (Oct)

by coanne

Hi fellow VT-ers!

I know this question has been asked so many times but I need some information soon as I am leaving in a week's time (last-minute decision to visit Taipei):

(I am arriving Taipei on 2 Oct (Sat). Departing on 8 Oct (Fri).)

- My bf and I hope to stay at the Full Moon Spa for at least a night. Would 1 night be sufficient?

- what can we do in Taipei within 5 full days?

- are there other nearby cities we can visit that is near to Taipei?

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

Cheers & beers!

I have not stayed at the Full Moon Spa, so I can not comment.

In my humble opinion, 5 days in Taipei may be a bit much unless you are taking your time and doing things very slowly.

Taiwan is a relatively small island with a good train system. You can get to the extreme southern end in a matter of hours. I would not worry about staying so close to Taipei, since the entire island is available.

Taipei is famous for having some of the most beautiful Chinese temples in the world.

It also has lots of night markets that are well worth a look.e.g. Shi Lin, Snake Alley.

Then there is The National Palace Museum filled with the national treasures that were removed from China by the KMT.

The Cheng Kai Chek MemorialHall is well worth a look. You'll find the national theatre and concert hall here, too.

Take a trip out to Betiou and visit the thermal springs.

If you are interested in history, go to Danshui and look at the old fort and other old buildings.

Visit Taipei zoo (not on a weekend too crowded) and see the pandas.

Take a trip up Taipei 101 whivh was once the tallest building in the world.

For day trips from Taipei try Yingge by train - beautiful pottery village, Keelung to see the Kuan Yin Statue, Wulai for beautiful mountain scenery, waterfalls, Aboriginal show.

For more details please visit my Taipei page.

Have a good trip.

hi there,

thanks lots for the suggestions. we have decided to cover these places:

- Usual sights at Taipei & night markets
- Wulai & Neidong Forest
- Yangmingshan & Beitou
- Yehliu & Dansui

I reckon that would be a good mix of urban, hot springs, nature, shopping & eating :p ?

Travel Tips for Taipei

Taiwan and PinYin don't get along.......

by Lingualorphan

My biggest pet peeve with Taiwan... there are a few that get to me, but this is the number one reason for frustration. Taiwan does not use the standard of Pinyin of China. It uses its own.... and the Taiwanese don't even know it and it is not the same from block to block of the same street.
So for a foreigner who knows nothing... you are walking along jungshan rd( should be Zhongshan rd) and the next block says jhongshan or zongshan or zhongxan.... My suggestion is learn characters, though the MRT has started putting up new correct signs... we can still only hope that the Taiwanese will stop being stubborn and adopt standard Hanyu PinYin.

Row row row your boat

by deeper_blue

Dragon boat festivals are very popular in Taiwan, there is an annual one that takes place on the Keelung river, the format is elimiation, 4 boats compete in each race and over 3 days of racing the teams get whittled down to the eventual winner. The races take around 2mins 30 but it's hard work, trust me! A boat and a paddle

Super Hot Night Market

by ngcsc about Shilin Night Market

If there is an award, Shilin Night Market might be all-time top three for the travellers to Taipei.

One of my friends when 12 night with his 14 nights stay in Taipei.... sound crazy but it is real.

Hanging around in Shilin Night Market is a bit different nowadays. The new indoor market right beside Jian Tan MRT station is majory for those food stalls and the old Shilin night market still remain and for various products. Cheap product, discounted product and expensive product too... especially fruit.

If you intend to buy food, don't buy in Shilin Market, it is for tourist... go to the supermarket opposite City Jungle Mall, they sell cheap. Clothes, Bags, Shoes, DVDs, and of course food.

MTR is the way to see Taipei!

by rhondav_2004

The Metro is an excellent mode of transportation to get around Taipei. It is clean, and inexpensive (TW$200) for unlimited rides for 1 day. The maps are easy to read, and show all of the best tourist spots and are free (better map than what you might buy) .

Grandma nitti s restaurant je...

by renuschka

Grandma nitti s restaurant je navstevovana hlavne Americanmi, najdu si tu vsetko ako doma. Tento krasny oranzovy kocur je sucastou interieru, je samostatny, hrdy, nema zaujem o hladkanie a o fotenie uz vobec.
Nie je tam cisto. Vsade su odpadky. Personal je odlisny ako v inych restauraciach. Neklanaju sa tolko:-) Su tu hlavne mexicke jedla, su chutne, stiplave a porcie su velke.
