We visited Asia again this year using Hong Kong as our base then first flew to Taipei. Our hotel was in Ximen, a very interesting district and our hotel was only about a 3 minute walk to the metro station. We found Taipei to be a very dynamic city with lots to do and see and as a bonus, most of our activities and meals were very inexpensive. The transportation system was also inexpensive and very efficient. A great place to just wander around exploring and enjoy the sites. We also took a day trip out to Jiufen, a definite tourist attraction which was quite busy but worth the effort. Since we only had 4 days, it’s on our list of places we need to return to in the future.
