Taipei On Your Own
Information not currently available.
Design your own adventure in the exciting city of Taipei.
Begin with a picturesque drive from Taiwan's second-largest port, Keelung City, to Taipei. Along the way, take in the country's lush green hill scenery.
Arriving in the bustling city of Taipei -- the political, cultural and economic center of Taiwan -- you will marvel at the endless motorcycles, cars and buses buzzing about on the streets and people streaming along the busy sidewalks. Look up to take in the world's fifth-tallest skyscraper, Taipei 101, with its blend of high-tech and traditional design elements. With five hours at your disposal, you are now free to explore the city to see, taste and visit as you wish. Suggestions the coach escort may have include: the National Palace Museum, whose breathtaking exhibitions span 8,000 years and four dynasties; Liberty Square and the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial; and the National Theater and Concert Hall -- twin venues built in 1987 that serve as Taiwan's primary performing arts destinations. Also within striking distance are the Taipei Fine Arts Museum and the National Taiwan Museum, the ornate Longshan Temple (1738) and Taipei's Confucius Temple.
Re-join the coach at the starting point to enjoy a relaxing return trip back to the shop.
Guide service, taxi transfers, entrance fees and lunch are not included in the transfer price. It will be your responsibility to be at the pick-up point at the given return time. An English-speaking escort will be aboard the transfer motor coach to answer questions en route.
