Odds are, ambling down any street in Taipei would confront you with a million sights you’ve never seen before. Wouldn’t it be wonderful, in such an instance, to have somebody by your side to explain just what exactly is going on?

 

With a local Taipei host, you’ll have that as you explore this bustling, vibrant and ridiculously colourful city together. Tell them what interests you, and then stick around for the journey.

 

You might like to start your day with a traditional Taiwanese breakfast before heading to Liberty Square. From here, many of the famous attractions are accessible to you, and you can get your history (and Instagram) kicks by exploring one or many of the surrounding temples and buildings.

 

Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is a biggie! Ask your host about its political significance.

 

Travel back in time on Bopiliao Old Street - a relic from the Qing Dynasty, or catch a tangerine sunset at Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf. The day is yours and your host is there to help you command it!
