The vibrant political and cultural center of Taiwan (officially the Republic of China) and an economic hub in East Asia, Taipei is a unique blend of Chinese, Japanese, and Western influences. Explore it from the top of one of the tallest buildings in the world, Taipei 101, to the sprawling night markets. Stop in one of the ancient temples for a look into the past, and relax in the hot springs for respite in the middle of the bustle. There’s plenty to do wherever you go – and no shortage of inspiration.
EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES
Visit temples, mountains, tea plantations, porcelain workshops, and museums around northern Taiwan.
Volunteering. There are plenty of opportunities to give back to your host community and connect in meaningful ways with locals – like teaching English a school or supporting marginalized groups, people with disabilities, immigrants, or underprivileged women and children.
