Taipei

Recommended Posts

Been transferring over in Taipei for the last couple of years and I figured maybe I should check it out.

 

Any tips of what to do, where to stay, getting around, where to drink, etc? Not interested in the p4p scene.

 

I would only be interested in 2 - 3 nights.

 

Thanks.

Some nice "old quarters" in Taipei that remind me of Tokyo and Hong Kong back streets. Full of vegetarian restaurants. Taiwanese are nuts about being vegetarian, but oddly,

The snake market was interesting!

 

The history museums are good.

The one museum has many items from mainland China that were saved.

 

The native Taiwanese museum is good!
