US$ 258

Taipei is a vibrant, colourful city offering an array of temples, shrines and museums dedicated to its past as well as an endless choice of excellent restaurants, markets, shops and entertainment.


Taipei, the capital, is a vibrant centre of culture and entertainment. There is no doubt the major attraction is the National Palace Museum with its treasure chest of ancient Chinese artifacts brought mainly from Mainland China by Chiang Kai-Shek when he fled from there to set up in Taiwan. It is a world-class museum that hosts an eclectic collection of treasures kept by generations of Emperors and home to hundreds of thousands of historical relics that make up the world's most comprehensive and precious collection of ancient Chinese artifacts.

Other points of interest are Taipei 101, a towering building with an observation platform looking down on the city and offering panoramic views, the Martyr’s Shrine resting on the slopes of nearby Qing Mountain and the impressive Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. A bronze statue of Chiang looks west symbolically to the Presidential Office Building and Mainland China.

Later spend time at the handicrafts centre where you can shop for jewellery, art, ceramics and many other crafts.
