City of Azaleas

Situated in a basin between two mountain ranges, Taipei appeals to tourists with its blend of Asian cultures, living side by side amidst Japanese-era mansions and Taoist temples.
When in Taipei, make a side trip to see Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) in Ruifang, approximately Ruifang away. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the history behind Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, hunt for treasures at Shilin Night Market, stop by Zhen Yi Xuan - Zhongxiao Xinsheng Menshi, and wander the streets of Ximending.
