What you should absolutely know about Taipei

City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

Taipei, “North of Taiwan,” is located on the northern tip of Taiwan, along the Taipei Basin and the Tamsui River. The city is central to Taiwan’s economic, educational, technological, and cultural sectors. You’ll find museums dedicated to local history and art, such as the National Palace Museum and the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. During your Taipei day trips, check out temples built for Buddists, Taoists, and Chinese folk deities to get a glimpse of various religions. In the evening visit the new Taipei Performing Arts Center for a show, or stroll through the Skilin Night Market in the Shilin District, one of the larger, more famous city markets

Taipei’s renewed architecture is evident when visiting one of its many famous buildings- Hsing Tian Kong, Taipei 101, Taipei Guest House, and Ximending just to name a few. Explore the various night markets throughout the city or check out the nearby hot springs

Start off your Taipei food adventure with a bowl of mifun tang, a rice noodle soup chock full of tofu. Add some mushrooms and seaweed for extra flavors. For dessert try shaved ice with assorted toppings – beans, tapioca, sweetened condensed milk, just to name a few

You should try to become familiar with the symbols as well as the sounds. Say a formal “Hello,” “Nín hâo” (pronounced Nen- How) and “qîng” (pronounced key-ng) for “Please”. “Thank you” is pronounced “xièxie” (pronounced Zi- zee)

Taipei gets a bit warm and humid- averaging 80ºF for the year and topping off in the high 90s-100s, with a yearly precipitation average of 95 in and an average relative humidity of 77%. The typhoon season lasts from June to October

To get into the city from the airport, opt for a taxi or train. Traveling by train costs about 180 Taiwanese dollars for a one-day pass. Taxis cost around 175 Taiwanese dollars. You may also take the CitiAir Bus for 140 Taiwanese dollars

Utilize the well-laid out public transportation. The central hub, Taipei Station, offers access to the subway, bus, regular rail, and high-speed rail networks. You’ll purchase a contact-free Easy Card which deducts credits automatically
