Cosmopolitan Taipei

The sophisticated Xinyi district is packed full of upmarket shopping malls and flagship stores. Looming over this district is Taipei 101, the world’s third tallest building and one of the city’s main attractions. To explore the city’s history, you can visit the Zhongzheng district. This area is home to the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and the National Taiwan Museum, an impressive building erected when the country was under Japanese rule.

After dark

When night falls, you can sample Taiwanese street food classics at Shilin Night Market or check out the city’s many cocktail bars and nightclubs in Xinyi district. With more than 10 million visitors annually, Taipei is one of 2024 / 2025’s most popular destinations, so wherever you go, you won’t be alone.

When to go

Taiwan is a subtropical country, and the summers (June to August) are hot and humid. If you visit in late August you’ll be able to catch the Ghost Festival, when the city’s Buddhists honour the dead with a variety of feasts and outdoor events.

For a cooler time of the year, you could consider an autumn departure. September and November see the mercury drop to a pleasant 20 degrees Celsius, but there is still plenty of sunshine. There are often excellent deals to be had on last minute flights to Taipei around this time, as the peak summer season ends.

Low season is November to March, when temperatures drop to around 10 degrees Celsius. Chinese New Year falls in late January or early February, resulting in high demand for flights and hotels. However, whilst the celebrations are magnificent, it may not be the ideal time for you to visit, as many shops and businesses are closed.
