TAIPEI

Taipei is the national capital of Taiwan and the fourth largest administrative area of Taiwan. Taipei's international airport is officially called Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport located about 30 km from the city.

Taipei 101 or officially known as the Taipei International Financial Center is the main attraction. This 101-floor, 508-meter high skyscraper is in the Xinyi District of Taipei and is the second tallest skyscraper in the world. It also boasts the world's second fastest elevators which will zip visitors up to the 89th-floor observation deck in a mere 37 seconds. To see performances of Taiwanese plays or a dance troupe, the National Theater Hall and National Concert Hall located in the grounds of the Chiang Kaishek Memorial is an excellent place. Nestled in a tight, lush valley, Taipei Zoo has all the leisurely charm of a large park, you also get the enjoyment of wandering through trees and along lanes with a variety of animals and birds. Unlike many traditional zoos, the animals here are not confined to cages, but allowed to roam freely in open paddocks.

The Taipei Convention Hall, Taipei World Trade Center, Taipei 101, Taipei City Hall, and various shopping malls and entertainment venues make Xinyi the most modern cosmopolitan district of Taipei.

In addition, numerous restaurants are located in the area, especially American chain restaurants. Taipei probably has one of the highest densities of restaurants in the world. Almost every street and alley offers some kind of eatery. Basically, East Taipei, especially around Dunhua and Anhe Roads, and also the expat enclave of Tianmu are where to clash chopsticks with the rich and famous, whereas West Taipei offers more smaller, homey restaurants. The most famous one in Taipei is the Shilin Night Market. Locals in Taipei view Shilin as touristy, with food catering to the tastes of mainland visitors. Another excellent option is Ning Xia Yeshi.
