No airport (regardless of its frosty air conditioning and vast duty free halls) is worth missing out on exploring a whole new city.

Taipei is happening all around you, and with one of our local Taipei hosts by your side, you’ll be able to enjoy a snapshot of it despite time constraints.

Bust out of the airport, let them worry about getting you back on time, and take to the streets together. In all honesty, once you’ve tasted giant chicken chops, catching flights somehow seems less important.

In Taipei, there is always something on the go, day or night. During your time in the city, you could visit Ximending - the uber neon and vibrant shopping district, Bopiliao Old Street, a night market, Liberty Square or simply explore a neighbourhood that catches your eye.

Trade in lounges for a hike and souvenir shops for authentic Taiwanese gifts - it’s all about seizing the day (or night) in this one, and we’re sure your taste of Taipei will have you wanting to come back for seconds.
