For a prime vantage point of the expansive city you'll be touring, head for the observation deck at Taipei 101, the tallest building in Taiwan. Standing at 508m and designed to resemble a bamboo cane, tours of the building's interior are available on site, which features the golden iron ball that keeps the tower stable during earthquakes and typhoons, as well as the world's highest Starbucks outlet.
The National Palace Museum houses over 60,000 artefacts, a fraction of which are displayed at any one time, from bronzes, jade jewellery, and ancient pottery to Ming vases and calligraphy. You could spend days among the finest collection of Chinese art in the world and still only scratch the surface. Give it a try though and immerse yourself in it.
If you ever tire of the city, you can lose yourself in Yangmingshan National Park with its hot springs, bamboo forests, marvelous mountains, and countless hiking trails. Watch out for swarming Chestnut Tiger butterflies in June - if you're wearing bright clothes, you can even expect them to land on you for a one-of-a-kind photo op!
There is never a bad time to get flights to Taipei; the city has a pleasant climate throughout the year. However, the domestic tourism schedule may affect the best times to book flights to Taipei. August, for instance, is the Ghost Month in Taipei, and locals usually prefer to stay at home during this period, which makes it an ideal time to book flights to Taipei. Travel during key local festivals will cost less, and your senses will be enthralled by many season-exclusive festivities and celebrations.
