Taipei is proof that different religions can coexist. Followers of Buddhism and Taoism peacefully come together in the same temple. Observe the differences between the Longshan Temple, the Confucius Temple and the Boa-an Temple. Curious about ancient Chinese art? Feast your eyes in the National Palace Museum, which displays a collection of ceramics, paintings and bronze artefacts. It is impossible to overlook the most famous building in town: Taipei 101. This 508-metre-high behemoth towers over all other buildings. Taipei is not only perfect for a city trip but also makes a great starting point for a longer holiday in Taiwan.

Shopping and snacking
You may want to buy an extra suitcase because it will be hard to resist the offerings of the Taipei markets. Sparkling gems are on display at the Jianguo Jade Market. We highly recommend visiting the night markets. Shop for clothing, toys and electronics at the Shilin Night Market. Stop for a local snack before another round of shopping, watch a movie at the outdoor cinema or enjoy a soothing massage. Shop for antiques or tuck into delicious dumplings at the Raohe Street Night Market. Ready for a culinary adventure? Try a snake dish!
