As one of the top travel destinations in Southeast Asia, modern Taipei is known for boasting marvellous sights and if you are one who appreciates the dazzling city lights, then a panoramic view of the city’s skyline is a must.
While the general consensus for the best photo taking spot is at the viewing gallery of the majestic Taipei 101, those who are not keen on squeezing with the tourists may want to opt for a hike up Taipei’s Elephant Mountain instead. Its close proximity to the city makes this a popular hiking place among both locals and travellers who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city without having to travel far.
A spectacular view awaits at the top—whether you choose to visit in the day or night—and there are many opportunities for you to take pictures again the sunset and the iconic Taipei 101 which lights up at night.
