Originally a small gold mining village built by the Japanese, this maze of streets and alleys has become one of Taiwan’s most famous tourist destinations. The well-preserved town, which sits on a mountain side facing the sea, is rich with culture and history. While you’re here, you can check out unique Chinese and Japanese tea houses, cafes, and souvenir shops. Jiufen is also well known as the one of the inspirations for the acclaimed animated movie, Spirited Away.
Sharing its roots with China’s Palace Museum in the forbidden city, the National Palace Museum in Taipei has a collection of around 700,000 ancient chinese artifacts from the Qing and Ming dynasties. The vast collection includes paintings, calligraphies, statues, religious items, ceramics, jade items, and many others. To prevent wear, these items are on rotation throughout the exhibits.
One of Taiwan’s top destinations, this memorial hall was erected in honor of the former president of the Republic of China, Chiang Kai-shek. If you’re coming to Taiwan, you cannot miss the memorial hall’s iconic gate, liberty square, and octagon-shaped building. You can also visit the museum below the hall, which documents Chiang Kai-shek’s life.
Just a short bus ride away from Taipei, you can find yourself in one of Taiwan’s most famous and easily accessible national parks. Because the park lies on a dormant volcano, you’ll be able to see numerous hot springs and geysers. There are also several hiking trails here that adventurous visitors can try out. There are no entrance fees for the park but if you came via car, you have to pay for the car park fee.
Another one of Taiwan’s nine national parks, it is highly known for its gorges, rivers, waterfalls, and high mountains. Located on the eastern part of the island, the park and its indigenous people, Taroko, create a beautiful ecosystem. While you’re here, you shouldn’t miss viewing the iconic Taroko Gorge and Liwu River from the central cross-island highway.
