As well as boasting the world's highest Starbucks and the world's fastest elevator, Taipei is a city bursting at the seams with ancient Chinese culture and traditions. Join forces with a guide and a group for a four-hour in-depth exploration of this bustling metropolitan.
You'll see monuments, landscaped gardens, imperial art, and more Instagram-worthy locations than you can shake a selfie-stick at.
Visit the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, an impressive monument to a great Chinese leader located in a pristine garden with ponds. President Chiang is still residing over it all, though these days, he's just a statue.
Learn the story behind Martyrs' Shrine which is dedicated to China's fallen war heroes. If you're lucky, you'll see the changing of the guard ceremony, which happens at the entrance on the hour.
The world's biggest collection of Chinese art treasures await you at the National Palace Museum. Get the low-down on the most important exhibits in the Chinese-speaking world. This collection is too big to be displayed all at once, so the pieces are displayed on rotation. Every visit is unique.
Feel minuscule before the world's tallest classical Chinese structure at the Grand Hotel. At 87-meters (285 ft) high, it was actually Taiwan's tallest building from 1973 to 1981. End your tour at Xingtian Temple, dedicated to Guan Yu, the patron saint of business! Only the hardest-working nations have one of him!
