Have you been in Taiwan? Maybe not, and most likely it isn’t one of the places in your list in East Asia that you plan to visit. Well, you might want to reconsider and add it up in your bucket list.
Aside from being the second safest country in the world, Taiwan has a lot to offer to its visitors.
Taipei is just one of its beautiful cities that you’ll surely love. With its very convenient and fast MRT system, going from one place to another is never a problem. Here are the top most visited destinations where I take a day tour.
MODERN TOILET RESTAURANT
Address: Taipei 101, No. 7, Section 5, Xinyi Rd, Xinyi District, Taipei City
Direction: You will see this landmark upon exiting the Taipei 101 MRT station
Your visit in Taiwan wouldn’t be complete without taking a tour in this famous landmark. Taipei 101 was hailed as the first tallest building in the world, but now only in the 8th spot.
I was surprised to see this enormously tall skyscraper when I exited from the subway because I didn’t know that it was exactly at the top of Taipei 101 Station. It was hard to take pictures from the bottom of this huge building, so I had to walk a few distance away from the building to get a good view.
Direction: From the Taipei Main Station, you can take either Bannan Line or Tamsui-Xinyi Line then drop off to transfer station and then take Wenhu Line going to Taipei Zoo.
It is known as the largest zoo in Asia. It houses variety of animals like Panda, Giraffe, Camel, Koala, Penguins and many more. This huge zoological garden is not just a recreational area but is also use for research and education. It’s a great place for both kids and adults to enjoy and learn. For tickets, zoo hours and other information, visit Taipei Zoo website.
These are just few of the many tourist attractions and landmarks in Taipei. There’s a lot to see and enjoy in this dazzling and busy city.
