best places to visit outside taipei

by rkearns

hello again VT'ers!

i'm visiting taipei for a month and i have looked through some pages but not sure still what places i can see just outside the city. i'm interested in food, mostly food, beautiful landscapes, nightlife, maybe some boat float tours, and some important cultural relics/temples or something specifically chinese. have any suggestions? i am traveling solo as a female, and i don't speak the language, if that means anything. i would love to know of some experiences other people have had while traveling outside the city. i know it's got a lot to offer, but i love to get off the beaten path. what can i do for one month?

i have a guide who lives in taipei but he also works, so i am looking for things to do, places to go in my spare time.

Language may be a bit of a problem if you go out of the city. I'm not really sure if somebody can help you with the bus. When I went there 5+ years ago, the bus only has Chinese written on them. It could be better now. At least the MRT system is well-signed in English and Chinese. Have your destination written in Chinese would definitely help too before you head out. One place that I like is the Mao Kong, which can be reached by the MRT now. It's a great tea place on the hill outside of Taipei. I have other suggestions in my Taipei page.

for landscape I can suggest the Yeliu Geopark, which is incredible rock formation that have been sculpted by the wind and the sea.

Places just outside Taipei that you can travel to for a day include Yingge - a town that is famous for pottery. We went there by train from Taipei without being able to speak Mandarin. The ticket seller at Taipei main station had enough English to sell us the ticket and the person at the ticket barrier pointed out the right platform. Station name written in English so you know where to get off.

We also went to Keelung for a day by train from Taipei. in Keelung they hhave a large harbour, markets and several temples including one with a huge statue of Kuan Yin - gooddess of mercy.

On previous visits we went to Wulai and Yelihu by half day organized tours. They are also possible by public bus.

Yelihu is near Keelung and it is famous for rocks weathered into different strange shapes - the most famous one looks like the head of Nefertiti.

Wulai is in the mountains. It has a huge waterfall and there is a restaurant there with Aboriginal dance performances.

Jiufen sounded good too, but we did not have time to visit.

Travel Tips for Taipei

Massage Palours

by dixonchan

Tired after trekking up the mountains or walking around too much?

Go loosen your muscles at a massage palour. These shops can be found in many locations in Taipei.

You can choose to have a full body massage or just foot reflexology.

Raining season

by ngcsc

If you are travelling in Taiwan in April until August, an umbella or raincoat will give you a more comfortable journey.

In the summer, Typoon is very frequent in Taiwan especially the coastal area... however, from end of April until June, the weather is either unpredictable, cloudy all day but not raining, or may be rain for a whole day but not heavy.... some people just lazy to bring weather gear...

My advise.. it is better to have at least one....

Local Snacker...

by THLIN about A-Po Iron Egg...

The story began with a poor old granny who can hardly sold her soy-sause-marinated-egg. Therefore, she kept boilt her eggs, until one day her products was as hard as stone. However, it attracted a lot of gluttens, and the fame and the legend and the tourism began.
There are many places selling "Iron Egg" in Danshui. A-Po is one of the most famous and the best shops there. Whenever I go Danshui, I buy some of their products home. By the way, there is nothing special with this shop, but the munchies they produce. Iron Egg is a preserved egg. It's boiled by speical sause and then dry up; the same process repeat three times, and your egg is as hard as a stone. It's a little bit salty but delicious, a little bit hard but chewy. I think you would like it. What's more, it's like trademark of Danshui.
Yu-Su is another trademark of Danshui. It's like dried tempura really savoury; I don't like it due to high cholstero and tallow that makes mey fingers oily. A package of Iron Egg is NT100;
a package of Yu-Su is NT50.
Exchange rate is about US1=NT31~33

Great transportation and links

by huggy93

Well before going to Taipei I did no research and I thought I would be travelling on `ramshackle` buses, all the way. Boy was I wrong. The transportation around Taipei / Taiwan is quick, convenient, clean and efficient. There are 7 main lines that should get you wherever you want to go. Did I mention cheap? I think that the MRT cost is between 20NT and 65NT for a single journey token. All stations are equiped with a self service ticket machines.

One day pass: Valid for unlimited Taipei Metro rides from first use until the end of service midnight and only for a single rider each time. 200NT for each card containing 150NT for usable amount and 50NT for card deposit.

Get a one day pass if you plan to visit many places in 1 day. You can buy this at Information Counter at all Metro Stations.

This really puts the transportation in London to shame!

Yummy Small Eats

by cheekychic about Ting Tai Fung

We ordered steamed pork dumplings, chicken soup, and green vegetable & pork won ton soup.

Our steamed pork dumplings has thin light dough and is filled with chicken soup. The correct method of eat - use the chopsticks gently hold the top of the creased dough, put in spoon, use chopstick to poke a hole in the dough to let the soup flow out. Drink the soup, then dip dumpling in black vinegar & eat with ginger.

The chicken soup uses the chinese black chicken (poultry with black skin) is blanched and steamed with ginger and scallions in a casserole.
