Must-see tourist attractions in Taipei
As the capital of Taiwan, Taipei is a huge tourist hub that is loved not only in Asia but also all around the world. This city is both traditionally and contemporarily captivating, which is why it attracts so many visitors.

 
  • Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall

    One of the top attractions in Taipei is the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall and this place is surrounded by a beautiful manicured garden. Here, you’ll also find the National Theater and the National Concert Hall. But the most photographed is the Memorial Hall itself for Chiang Kai Shek, the former President of Taiwan from 1928 to 1975. The iconic white building is octagonal-shaped with blue roof and two stairs leading to its main hall where a massive statue of Chiang Kai Shek is sitting.

  • Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall

    Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall may not as grandiose as the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall but definitely it’s worth a visit, after all this place is dedicated to Dr. Sun Yat Sen, father of Taiwan. The memorial hall is surrounded by a beautifully manicured park known as Zongshan Park. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is located near Taipei 101.

  • Taipei 101

    Taipei 101 is Taiwan’s most famous landmark. This soaring building was once named as the tallest building in the world. Tourists going to Taipei for the first-time make it a point to see this icon. Taipei 101 houses an upscale shopping mall and boast of the Guinness World of Record fastest elevator in the world. Imagine it can take guests on top for only 37 seconds.

    Tourists can tour inside Taipei 101 and climb the Observatory on the 89th Floor via the elevator to get a 360 degree view of Taipei. Don’t miss the museum inside. And while you are in the area, you can also go shopping at Xinyi Shopping District.

  • Elephant Mountain

    Undoubtedly, the Elephant Mountain has one of the best views of the city but be prepared to hike up the summit with a lot of stairs. Visit during the late afternoon and catch the sunset here, wait for the blue hour and early evening to take photo of Taipei.

  • Night Markets

    Ximending Youth Shopping District is walking distance from my hotel. It is packed with shops and restaurants and is the go to place of Taipei youths. While in the area, make time to visit the Read House Theater and Zongshan Hall.
