Taoyuan Image



Taoyuan is an industrial city in northern Taiwan. Taoyuan is primarily an industrial city and has few distinctive features. However, if you get stranded at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport overnight and don't want to pay over the odds at the airport hotel or travel the extra kilometers into Taipei, you might consider spending the night here. Taoyuan is about a 25 minute taxi ride from the international airport and around 30 to 40 minutes from Taipei.

Tigerhead mountain (Hu Tou Shan) is a popular spot for first dates and also has well-maintained hiking trails. There are a few snack shops at the top of the mountain.

Despite lacking tourist sites, the city does have several large shopping malls, good coffee shops and, due to a large number of overseas workers employed at local factories, also boasts several cheap South Asian eateries. At the centre of the town lies a large IKEA store and off of NanKan road is Taimall, one of the biggest malls in Taiwan.

The down town area is small enough to cover on foot. You can barely walk 100 metres in Taoyuan without running into a tea shop. Ching xin, Coco and 85 degrees are some of the biggest brands. Ask for green tea (lu cha) or oolong tea. They'll ask how much sugar and ice you want, and shake up your tea like a martini before handing it to you in a sealed cup in a scooter-friendly bag.
