You’ll join one of our local Taipei hosts to hit the streets and discover for yourself exactly what makes the capital of Taiwan so unique.

You couldn’t possibly see all of its must-see sights in just one day, so what we want is that you get an authentic feel for the place.

You might want to tick off some famous sights, like Bao’an Temple, Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and Dihua Street, and let’s not forget that Taipei is all about street food.

In fact, so entrenched is this daily ritual into the fabric of life here, that some apartments are built without kitchens - sample some pork belly buns and bubble tea to see why this would make perfect sense!

Taipei plays with a fusion of many flavours, both in its food and heritage - note the imported influences from Japan, Southeast Asia and even America!

Get to know your host and chat to them about what life is like in the capital. The day is waiting, and yours to command.

    • Get to know the real Taipei with a host by your side, answering any questions you might have and filling you in on local quirks
    • See some of the city's most famous sights in one day
    • Your host will take care in mapping out a unique route for you which takes in the city's highlights as well as some hidden gems they know you’ll love
    • Avoid those tourist traps - we’re not about that business, no sir!
    • Eat and drink great food at places that are loved by locals - street food is the name of the game!
