The avenue for recreation

A flourishing metropolis on the island of Taiwan, Taipei sits in a basin surrounded by mountains gushing with hot springs but it is the urban attractions that garner the most attention in this capital city with about seven million residents in the metro area. Taipei is a pleasant, little city whose beauty lies in its exceptional blend of Chinese culture with a remarkable fusion of Japanese, Southeast Asian and American influences. With Taoist temples and medieval-era museums to long-standing ethos, the city of Taipei is a lesser-known treasure box filled with wonders

 

 

SIGHTSEEING:

 

 

With natural marvels to man-made wonders, the eventful city of Taipei can offer anything under the sun. Travellers may admire the majestic Taipei 101 from the Elephant Mountain. Moreover, they may take a day trip to Jiufen, the Santorini of Taiwan. This gem of a town, which resembles the classic anime, Howl’s Moving Castle, is just a short train ride away from Taipei Main Station. The (almost) mystical feel surrounding the town only adds to the immensely beautiful appeal of the scenery there. Other than the adventure-filled activities of biking on some of the reputed biking trails in Taipei, the Bali Bike Trail, Guandu Bike Path, Keelung River Bicycle Trails and Xindian River/Dahan River Bike Trail to name a few, or the Xiuguluan River Rafting on the largest river in eastern Taiwan, visitors may also opt for the leisure-filled sunset watching at the Danshui/Tamsui Fisherman’s Wharf.

 

 

SHOPPING:

 

 

Taipei is well known for the exciting night markets dotted around the city dishing out both lip-smacking dishes as well as timeless souvenirs. At the Shilin Night Market, hands down the best place in the city for insane deals on crazy apparel and accessories, Wu Fen Pu contains hundreds of wholesale clothing shops and one can literally find anything in this area.  Ideal for tourists, this marketplace is the best place to get their hands on the latest goods. Also, the “Harajuku” of Taipei, Xi Men Ding (or Ximending) has a sprawling variety of clothing shops. There are bars, street snacks and even a performing arts theatre. Visitors can also find a tattoo-alley there for those who want to get inked. The government-affiliated centre, with an array of handicrafts on display from and around Taiwan, the Taipei Handicraft Promotion Centre, is a one-stop shopping spot for everyone one has to give some souvenirs or gifts. English-speaking staff are on hand to answer any questions to help visitors with gift ideas, of which one would find many beautifully crafted products on the four floors of this building.

 

 

MEETINGS, INCENTIVES, CONFERENCES AND EXHIBITIONS (MICE):

 

 

Taipei has never been hotter as a meetings’ destination. Ever since Taipei 101 reached the pinnacle in 2004 as the world’s tallest building, the city garnered much attention. The Taipei 101 building continues to hold a huge draw in the meetings industry. Taiwan offers regular flight service to and from Middle Eastern destinations and Taipei’s dominant location, the availability of high-grade human resources, its well-developed information and technology serve as promising conditions to enhance the international MICE tourism. Apart from the development of exhibition and conference venues, in March this year, DOIT promoted Taipei City MICE in Shanghai and Beijing and at the beginning of June, it participated in the first TAITRA overseas promotion events in Northeast Asia, traveling to South Korea (Seoul) and Japan (Fukuoka and Osaka), staging dedicated promotion activities.
