Top 3 Attractions in Taipei
Taipei 101 is the second tallest building in the world and easily the most famous building in the country, ranked among its top five tourist destinations. Towering over Taipei, with 101 floors above the ground and 5 floors below, Taipei 101 is visible from all parts of the city. There’s a large shopping center attached to it, as well as observation decks on the 89th and 91st floors. Taipei 101 is especially proud of their innovative engineering feat, the Tuned Mass Damper which is effectively a giant pendulum weighing 660 tonnes, near the top of the building that protects this very tall building against typhoons and earthquakes. (Photo tip: The best place to take photos of Taipei 101 is from nearby Elephant Hill.)
The heart of Taipei’s youth culture, Ximending is overflowing with stores selling clothes, fast food, sunglasses, gadgets, and almost anything else imaginable. If it’s trendy and fashionable, you’ll find it here. The pedestrian streets are the epicenter, but don’t forget to explore the small alleys for a complete Ximending experience. The streets are usually busy round-the-clock, with weekends and nights drawing even more crowds. It’s also a popular setting for music and other performances, particularly on holidays and weekends.
Night Markets of Taipei
Taipei is arguably one of the best cities in Taiwan to experience the famous night markets, which are a hugely important aspect of Taiwanese culture. From giant night markets specialising in traditional Taiwanese food, to electronic and gadget meccas, whatever it is you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it in one of Taipei’s night markets.
Shi Da night market is definitely the coolest of all the night markets in Taipei. It has a very youthful vibe, with several vendors selling their own handmade clothes, or other fashionable gear. Of course, the night market also features lots of amazing local food, but most people will come here to support the young designers by buying a unique piece at bargain prices.
Shi Lin, or Shilin, is Taipei’s largest and most famous night market. The market is huge, with hundreds of stalls selling everything from delicious Taiwanese and international cuisine to clothes, accessories and more. However, while Shi Lin is the most famous Night Market, recently visitors have commented that Shi Lin has become overly “touristy” and thus recommend Shi Da Night Market for the best experience instead.
