Make sure you visit this iconic landmark along with the National Palace Museum, Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, Dalongdong Baoan Temple, Hsing Tian Kong, Lungshan Temple of Manka and Ximending. Don’t miss the beautiful night markets across the city and explore the famous, local dishes such as the Taiwanese xiaochi, beef noodle soup and the super interesting stinky tofu.
