Taipei

The metropolitan heart of Taiwan

Get ready for non-stop excitement in Taipei, a city that roars to life around the clock. When the sun sets, join the tourists and bargain hunters at Shillin Night Market. With thousands of stores, it's not only a great place to bargain hunt but a cultural experience in itself. Another highlight is the Huashi Street Night Market, where you can find everything from snake soups to shoulder massages. Don't miss Taipei 101, an architectural icon that defines Taipei as a financial centre. As the second tallest building in the world, it rises up to the blue skies and dwarfs the landscape.

After a day of strolling through this fascinating city crammed with brilliant restaurants, splendid hotels, swanky shopping malls, museums, tranquil temples and peaceful gardens, take a break and stop for a local snack. Dig into a ‘toa tng pau sio tng’ – a yummy snack that is actually grilled Taiwanese sweet pork sausage wrapped in sticky rice sausage.
