Taipei
Situated in a basin between two mountain ranges, Taipei appeals to tourists with its blend of Asian cultures, living side by side amidst Japanese-era mansions and Taoist temples.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Taipei: Keelung Harbor (in Zhongzheng District), Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) (in Ruifang) and YehLiu Geopark (in Wanli). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at National Palace Museum, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Yangmingshan National Park, don't miss a visit to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail), and get in on the family fun at Leofoo Village Theme Park.

To see ratings, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Taipei road trip planning site.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiports are Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, Taipei Songshan Airport and Taichung Ching Chuang Kang Airport. March in Taipei sees daily highs of 25°C and lows of 17°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
