I made a short video in Chinese discussing my favorite things in Taiwan, it’s a very general list but if I were a new tourist in Taiwan I would start with these three things:
- Eat the food! They have amazing and cheap food, my favorite way to get lunch was go near any university and find a person selling lunch boxes. They’re cheap ($2-3 US) but really tasty and can’t be beaten in convenience.
- Walk around the city! Taipei presses into the surrounding mountains and it makes for great hiking. My favorite hike was a short one – Elephant Mountain near Taipei 101. It has the greatest view of the Taipei 101 itself and is really pretty.
- Go to a night market! They have tons of food, shopping, and people and it makes for tons of fun.
