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.

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.
If you are looking for a free family-friendly activity to burn off all the calories from the delicious Taipei street food, include Taipei Elephant Mountain in your itinerary! READ ON
