Taipei is not just famous for its tall buildings and for being a business hub. Our experience with the jewel of the Far East was certainly much more than that. There are a lot of places around the city that promises intrigue and let us take you through each one of them to show why Taipei must be your next vacation destination.
Sightseeing in Taipei
- The Tamsui Street
As soon as we heard the word, ‘culinary treat’ from the guide, we made a dash for this street. It is famous for preserved egg, fish crackers and bean curd. Once you are here, you will see an abundance of fish stalls. Apart from the voracious number of food outlets, there are also plenty of boutique and antique shops which spell history.
- Wulai Street
If you are tired of the eggs and fish crackers, then we recommend you head over this street for sausages. The stalls in this street usually have a long line of customers looking to satisfy their craving needs for the best sausages in the country. If you want to visit, a place to interact with the locals and live the best of their culture, then this is the place for you.
- The Waterfront at San – Ying
This is located opposite the Ceramics Museum and is filled with more than 1000 colorful windmills. This gallery is an amazing escapade from the hustle and bustle of the city. We attended a lot of workshops to which happen to be regular at this place, most common being, art and craft workshops.
How to reach Taipei?
Taipei being the capital city of Taiwan is a major business hub for businesses in the far – east and Asia. As a result, it is well – connected by flights such as Emirates and the China Airlines.
We do not recommend going for high end hotels if you are more of an explorer than someone who will chill, since there are so many things to see around the city, there will hardly be time to rest.
