Tour description

Welcome to Taipei, the capital of Taiwan!
Join my tour if you want to discover with me some of the stories and best kept secrets of this city full of life.

We will walk through some of its busiest streets and visit some of its most picturesque monuments.

Taipei is known not only for being a modern metropolis that mixes Japanese colonial roads but also for its lively streets full of street food, its night markets, and much more.

During our tour, we will visit:

  • Chiang-Kai-Shek Memorial
  • The Hall: to explore How CKS influence Taiwan's history, politics, culture, and food.
  • The CKS park
  • The National Concert hall
  • The National Theater
  • Traditional Chinese architecture of the Ming /Qing dynasty
  • The traditional Nan-Men Market to explore the diversified food culture.

From this last attraction, you'll have an idea of why Taiwan has attracted so many foodies, and why it has become a food paradise. 

After the tour, you can spend more time tasting local Taiwanese food at your own expense.
Looking forward to seeing you join my tour!
