Review of Shilin Night Market, Taipei by headofwords

Advantages: Lots of shops

Taipei 101
Review of Taipei 101, Taipei by headofwords

Advantages: A must see in Taipei, although you can't really miss it
Disadvantages: Expensive for Taipei, parts of it are a shameless tourist trap

Taipei 101, Taipei, Taiwan Opened in 2004, this bamboo-shaped marvel of modern engineering stands 506m tall in the centre of Taipei, Taiwan. Until the Burj Khalifa in Dubai opened in 2009, Taipei was the tallest building in the world. Today it is still ... Read review

Taipei Mass Rapid Transit
Review of Taipei Mass Rapid Transit, Taipei by headofwords

Advantages: cheap, fast, clean, safe ... everything really
Disadvantages: Nothing at all

Taipei Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) If London Underground is the worst metro system Iíve ever been on (and frankly, IMHO, itís nothing short of an embarrassment to an otherwise great city) then Taipei MRT in Taiwan has to be the best. Opened in 1998, Taipei ... Read review

Accessible nightmarket shopping spree
Review of Huahsi Night Market, Taipei by cubix8

Advantages: Accessible and everything cheap
Disadvantages: More of CD class

After having a day-long tour around Taiwan, we had fun shopping at night time. We went to Huashi Night Market, just near the Longshan Templen MRT station. Gratifying our urge for the midnight snack, we indulged ourselves in roasted cobs with teryaki sauce ... Read review

Another city that never sleeps
Review of Kaohsiung (Taiwan) by CJYKB

Advantages: Taipei lifestyle with a more provincial feel
Disadvantages: Hot, muggy, polluted, just like any other city

I've spent a lot of time in Kaohsiung. My grandparents on my mother's side are resident there, as are my Aunt, Uncle, and two little cousins. There's something of a language barrier, but I think we understand each other. At least well enough for them to k ... Read review

Kaohsiung
Review of Kaohsiung (Taiwan) by shly

Advantages: Big city
Disadvantages: Big City

Kaohsiung is a great bustling city. Humid as all places in Taiwan. It's a good place to get a bus or train, or plane to somewhere else. Night markets to fill your evenings, and shopping malls for the day (if that rocks your boat?) There are also so ... Read review

Xiť Xie or Visit the world highest skyscraper!
Review of Taipei (Taiwan) by kambodscha-joe

Advantages: see review
Disadvantages: distance, language

I was afraid of my stay for one-day stopover without prebooking any hotel in Taiwan to Hanoi. I had been arrived early in the morning at 7.30 a.m. and the flight to Hanoi was departing the next day at 7 a.m. The airport, which should close at night, is 50 ... Read review
