Taipei is the capital of Taiwan. Situated in the northern piece of the nation, it’s contained twelve regions with an all out populace of around 2.7 million. It’s the social, money related, and political focus of the island so any first-time visit to Taiwan should start here.

To be completely forthright, I didn’t have the foggiest idea what to think about Taipei when we originally visited in 2014. From the outset, I wasn’t as eager to go in light of the fact that I hadn’t heard much about it and its famous attractions didn’t appear to be such fascinating to me. However, as portrayed over, that short three-day visit was all it took to make me a fanatic of the city and of Taiwan. Ren and I have become hopelessly enamored with this nation so much that we’re really playing with moving here.

There are numerous things to adore about Taipei like its night markets and numerous exhibition halls. Yet, past its attractions, what makes Taipei so charming for me, is simply the city. With comforts like a modest yet extraordinarily productive metro framework, and its plenty of all around kept up open stops, it’s a city that plainly puts its kin first.


As a rule, Taiwan appreciates mellow climate all year with a normal temperature of about 23°C (73°F).

I had an auntie who visited Taipei during that time and she was unable to go to a solitary night advertise in light of the fact that it was coming down hard consistently. Night markets are a major piece of the Taiwan experience so you don’t need that to transpire. In a perfect world, go for late October to March in the event that you can. The climate is cool and dry and air contamination is at the very least.
