Situated in the heart of Taiwan, Taipai leads the way to the most magnificent attractions of Taipan as well as the rest of Taiwan. During your time in Taipai you can visit the ‘National Palace Museum' which houses the world's largest collection of Chinese art; ‘Chiang Kai Chek Memorial Hall' where the history of this late president's life can be discovered; or head to the serene and tranquil place that is the ‘Confucius Temple'. Another popular place to visit is ‘Taipei 101', which is currently the tallest building in the world - with 101 storeys above ground.
Taipei has many night markets - the most popular one is probably the ‘Shilin Night Market' in the Shilin District. The night markets are where you can buy clothing, gifts, souvenirs and a wide choice of handicrafts - at reasonable prices. If you're looking to purchase electronic gadgets, then check out the ‘Kuanghua Market'.
The local currency in Taipei is the New Taiwan dollar (TWD). Taipei is 7 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +7).
