Taipei offers visitors a chance to experience the fascinating history of this island while also appreciating its modernity. Beautiful glass-clad skyscrapers climb above the old Chinese temples and colonial buildings. One such skyscraper is the world famous Taipei 101 building, the tallest building in the world when it was completed in 2004. You can learn about the rich culture and interesting history of Taiwan in the many interesting museums located throughout the city like the National Palace Museum. Here, you'll see an enormous collection of ceramics, carvings, paintings and calligraphy from ancient China.

Food in Taipei is a true pleasure to enjoy and you'll be able to try a wide variety of international cuisines including Chinese, European and Asian.

Rice and noodles are the typical Chinese staples along with fish, chicken, beef and pork as well as vegetables. Most meals are served with condiments such as soy sauce, pepper and chili sauce.
