Taipei. Pop. 2,500,000. Currency - New Taiwan dollar. Language – Standard Mandarin and Taiwanese Hokkien. Time Zone – GMT + 8 hours. Airport - Taiwan Taoyuan (TPE). Best time to go – October to December has arguably the most pleasant weather. Taipei is located in the north of Taiwan and is now an economic and financial powerhouse. Indeed the eastern side of the city is replete with malls, chic boutiques, stylish restaurants, and cafes, reminiscent of those found in London, Hong Kong, Paris, Tokyo or New York. The western side of the city still retains some of the flavour of ‘Old Taipei’ with its narrow streets and road side vendors. Getting around the city is easiest by using the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) rail system. As with the Tokyo rail system the signage is also in English, a feature appreciated by TLD staff when visiting the Japan in 2006 and 2009. Key landmarks in Taipei include: Taipei 101 (a 101-floor, 508-meter high skyscraper and is designed to resemble bamboo shoots rising from the earth); Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall (in memory of the founding father of the Republic of China); Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (the symbol of both Taipei and the Republic of China, and where that the national flag is raised every morning). The city is also home to many museums, too numerous to list here, but check them out on Taipei – wikitravel. A popular activity in the Taipei area is to visit a hot spring. There are 3 main springs at Beitou, Wulai, and Yangmingshan National Park. The national park is also a popular hiking area.

Taipei - wikipedia

Taipei City is located in the Taipei Basin in northern Taiwan and is bordered on the south by the Xindian River, and the Tamsui River on the west. The northern districts of Shilin and Beitou extend north of the Keelung River and are bordered by Yangmingshan National Park. Because of its location in a valley, the city commonly experiences high temperatures and humidity during the summer months, a problem enhanced by the high population density and the use of air conditioning.
