    Day 1: Arrive Taipei  

    On arrival in Taipei, you will be met at the airport and driven into the city, checking into your hotel for three nights. Taipei is an undeniably cool city packed with intriguing boutique shops and minimalist cafes. Everywhere you turn, you'll find a hint of Japanese style, but with a simpler and more natural vibe.

    Overnight in 4* hotel

    Day 2 & 3: Taipei    

    You'll have two full days to explore this city, steeped in history and culture. In refreshing contrast to other Asian cities, Taipei is a peaceful, tree-lined city, surrounded by lush green mountains.

    We recommend that you start your day in Liberty Square, where you can admire the magnificent arch and explore the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. Next, visit the National Palace Museum with its collection of Chinese art, then head to Longshan Temple in the afternoon to see worshippers gather to chant amongst the incense.

    Grab a tasty, local bao bun for lunch and enjoy a stroll through the small streets, where aloe vera plants hang from grocery stalls alongside big wasabi roots. Taipei is a top foodie destination with a cuisine flavoured by both Chinese and Japanese influence.

    Tonight, we’ve included an evening street food tour to Ningxia Market. Here, you can look forward to sampling fried yam balls, pork leg with rice and shrimp soup, as well as a delicious salt and pepper chicken with barbecue sauce, plus vegetarian dishes like sticky rice with mushrooms or taro balls with egg. Enjoy a bubble tea or a peanut roll ice cream for a sweet finish!

    Day 4: Depart Taipei 

    Spend one last morning exploring the cool shops which line the streets of the Shida neighbourhood before being driven back to the airport for your onward flight.


    Taiwan is mostly warm all year round, although there's a chance of tropical rain, which keeps the island so lush and green. There are around four typhoons a year that tend to hit between July and September, so one of the best times to visit is between October and May.
