Highlights of Taipei
Taipei is the cosmopolitan capital of Taiwan. It has a population of 2.7 million people. Interestingly it has Japanese colonial lanes. The Chinese ceded Taiwan to the Japanese in 1895 after the First Sino-Japanese War. It was only after the defeat of the Japanese in 1945 that the Chinese were able to take back their island. Architecturally the Japanese constructed the basis of the city including the Presidential Building. However there was a civil war in China from 1945 to 1949. The Republic of China (ROC) supporters fled in retreat to Taiwan as the Communists took over mainland China.
The political turmoil continues. The People of the Republic of China considers Taiwan as part of its territory. This is part of their one China policy. However the ROC claims Taiwan as its territory. Hostilities increase, including the risk of invasion, when ROC tries to officially claim independence. They want to change the name to the Republic of Taiwan. Despite all this both governments have close ties and work closely on most aspects.
The city is known though for its shopping districts for all pockets. Whilst famous brands have their presence in many of the shopping halls, you can often seek a bargain at the night markets such as Shilin market. Shuangcheng Street Night Market is also inviting especially for foodies.
The Taipei 101 skyscraper towers the skyline. A fast elevator takes you near to the top to the observatory. However at street level you will find shops hosting luxury brands.
One place you may wish to visit is MAJI Square. Previously a sports stadium it has been turned into a multipurpose complex. It houses many restaurants, a club, farmers markets, bars, shops and many restaurants. In addition there is live entertainment that draws in the crowds.
Not withstanding, at only 1 hour 20 minute train ride from Taipei you can find a beach called Fulong beach. Its 3 kms of sandy beach is an important draw for locals and tourists alike. However in April it becomes centre stage for the Fulong International Sand Sculpture Festival. In 2018 it took place on 21st April.
If you enjoy hiking then try Elephant Mountain. Or Lion’s Head Mountain. Both give you views to remember. Additionally, closer to the centre of town, there are open areas such as the Daan Forest Park. It hosts an ecological pond, as well as some baseball parks.
To fully discover this city use the services of a Holiday Houseboy, your gay friendly tour guide. He will look after your safety and welfare at all times.
