National Palace Museum

The Taipei National Palace Museum is a world-class museum that hosts an eclectic collection of treasures kept by generations of Emperors ruling from the Forbidden City. In WWII, Nationalist troops seized the most important pieces in order to prevent invaders from ransacking China's national treasures. A twist of fate eventually brought these treasures to Taiwan.

The Taipei National Palace Museum is designed in the style of a Northern Chinese palace. The museum is home to hundreds of thousands of historical relics that make up the world's most comprehensive and precious collection of ancient Chinese artifacts. The entire collection covers 5,000 years of China's historical and artistic achievements.

The museum provides Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish and Korean language guides and museum-related literature. The museum is a must- see on any visitor's itinerary.

    A definite must see area in Taipei!

    2017-07

    The area is just like how other tourists described it and I confirmed it. Like the Times Square of New York, Shibuya of Tokyo. We did a comparison by visiting it in the afternoon, then in the evening on the same day. Definitely at night is the best for people watching and immense yourself in a visual and sensory pleasure. If you love big crowds and noisy environment with lots of colour LED lighting with shopping and food like me, come here. Yes, most things are priced higher than other places but its still worth a visit. Even though I have an H&M where I lived, I still visited to see their styling and regional offerings. I loved the Uniqlo store because we do not have it at our place. With so many restaurants, eateries and street vendors and things to do, I could easily spend 3 days here to thoroughly enjoy it here. The day time exploring is great to do a lot of the indoor activites like the cinemas, shopping at department stores and dining at restaurants. In the evening, exploring outside and eating at the street vendors are a lot of fun. I ate at one of the many restaurants here so I posted some photos. Unable to review it since its in Chinese for the restaurant name. It was a nice lunch.

    Young hip people hang out with interesting mobile stall eatery

    2017-09

    Many stalls that caters to the young and hip crowd. It is a place where you can get side stalls that sell snacks. The clothes and products that they sell here are slightly more commercialise and with some big name brands. However, if you explore the side streets, you should get some Taipei designers on the off beaten tracks.

This place has everything you could think of before returning back to your country. Souvenirs, local delicacies, clothing, shoes the well known or local made, cosmetics you name they are here and this place opens till late every day.

    hip place to see and be seen

    2017-07

    this is a zone where locals and tourists flood to every single day, at all sorts of hours. there's at least 2 cinemas here, cheap clothes, sports stores, quite a good variety of food options, and usually there's some buskers around too. just be careful of youths who grab hold of your arm and hang on to you to get you buy some weird stationery etc from them.
