Taipei is the capital city of Taiwan, an island nation located north of Philippines and in the southeastern region of mainland China. The name Taiwan is derived from a Chinese word written 'tai wan.' The Portuguese used to call this island Ilha Formosa which translated to 'the Beautiful isle.' Taipei is a highly industrialized city of about 271.8 km2 hosting close to 2.8 million people. The city is one of the densely populated places in the island but is also known for its lush forests, steep mountains, scenic sites and hospitable people with a rich culture. The capital city of Taiwan is also home to one of the tallest buildings in the world called the TAIPEI101, mounting about 1670 meters high. It is the center of the Chinese pop culture with an amazing entertainment history. Tourists particularly enjoy the rich history of the Taiwanese culture and the amazing attractions everywhere within the island.
Taipei is worth visiting for many reasons, not just for the misty hillsides, the breathtaking waterfalls, hot springs or the landscape. Aside from hosting some of the magnificent tourist attractions sites, it is an ideal place for anyone who is interested in learning the historical struggles that the city has gone thought over the years. It is a mysterious land that only unfolds to you when you make that visit. Taipei is also an industrious and fast developing city that will definitely suit the needs of anyone interested in taking a holiday off, be it as a family or as friends.
The best time to visit Taipei is between October and December when the weather is warm although the occasional typhoons can be a distraction.
