About Taipei

Welcome to the City of Smiles! Taiwanese are known for their smiles. It is said that they often smile to cover up an embarrassing incident. Does that mean they are often embarrassed? Maybe, but whatever the real reason is, it doesn’t change the fact that the people in Taiwan are frequently giving their smiles away freely, making tourists feel at home and comfortable in their visit to this wonderful place. Taipei is the capital city of Taiwan and the city is deeply rooted in their culture and history. It is one of the most dynamic and organized cities in Asia. It was not like this before. Taipei used to be congested with pollution and people. Traffic was unbearable and the architectures were hideous. However in the late eighties, the city began to heal from the scars it got from the chaotic martial law their former government implemented. The people came together and realized that something had to change and it had to start within them. And look at how far they’ve come from that moment they demanded change. Today, Taipei is clean, systematic, and now offers world class services to both foreign visitors who want to witness the huge development of the city. So when you visit the city, it’s important that you take note of their past to fully appreciate what they have become today. Here are a few things that you can do when you visit Taipei that will bring a smile on your face. Ride the Maokong Gondola. Exploring the city is not so difficult because Taipei has an orderly and wide metro system that will be very helpful in your discover of the city. The Maokong Gondola operates as lift transportation and you get the best view of the city from the sky from it. The ride will take about 4km long about 15 minutes until you reach the last station. This may not be conducive for those who have fear of heights. Go to the iconic tower of Taipei 101, the world’s 2nd tallest building. This building is not just famous because of how remarkably tall it is but the architecture of the building is actually outstanding. The design of the building was made specifically to appeal to certain customary Chinese tradition and to also represent the growth of technology. Don’t forget to check out the top to see the beautiful city in the highest perspective for only $15. This comes with an audio tour that takes you to different points of view at the top plus it gives you interesting and historical facts about the city. Pay a visit to Taipei’s oldest temple, The Longshan Temple. Since you are in a Buddhist nation, why not pay your respect to the city’s gods? Here will find, the Budhhist, Taoist and Matsu gods all in one temple. It’s best to visit the temple around six or eight in the morning or five in the afternoon, as these were the times when the crowd gathers to worship.
