Cheap Flights to Taipei, Taiwan from New Zealand
The modern metropolis of Taipei reflects the very essence of its old name, Formosa, which is a Portuguese term for ‘beautiful’. Taiwan’s capital is also the gateway to more dazzling scenery in the city’s outskirts and in distant towns. Taipei also boasts of a unique selection of culinary specialties to tickle the tourist’s taste buds.
Though much of the city has skyscrapers such as the landmark Taipei 101, traditional buildings show the deep-seated Chinese traditions followed by the people. This is more apparent in Wanhua district’s Longshan Temple and in Dinhua Street in Dadaocheng. National Palace Museum offers more cultural information with its rich collection of relics, artworks and artifacts. Other museums include Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Postal Museum and National Museum of History.
Just within the outskirts of the city, Yangmingshan National Park creates a good escape from the fast-paced life of the urban jungle. The area includes volcanic terrain, lush vegetation and nature trails made for walking and hiking. Hot mineral baths are also found in the park. The most popular ones though are in Beitou or Wulai. Taipei’s zoo affords visitors the chance to see the rare black bear, koalas and king penguins. If shopping is included in one’s travel plans, head to the night markets or at funky Ximenting area. While exploring the markets, keep an eye out to sample the local delicacy called stinky tofu.
Pay Taipei a visit to sample all these exciting features.
