My favorite thing about living in Taipei is getting to know its little known spots, the ones often overlooked by travel guides. In this sense, Taipei is an endless source of little hidden gems lost in its alleyways and the folds of its mountains, sidestreets and hidden corners, waiting to be discovered. Visiting Taiwan and seeking hidden gems in Taipei? Be prepared to go off the beaten path Taipei style and peel back the layers of a very interesting place that people don’t often give so much thought to. An old tobacco factory now converted into a leisure attraction, a fish market with an abundance of great restaurants inside, a leafy green hiking trail with great views - these are just some of the things you can find. Looking for a Taipei alternative guide to kickstart your trip? You’ve just found it - here are the best unique things to do in Taipei.
