Taipei Information

Like Kuala Lumpur, Taipei has held on to its heritage. To experience old Taipei, it is advisable for you to visit Wanhua, the oldest neighborhood in the city. This is a colorful part of town and is home to the iconic Manka Longshan Temple, Taipei’s decaying garment district and the Red House Theater. If you want to go to the most visited parts of Taipei, you can head to Xinyi to shop, party and dine at world-renowned restaurants. If you want to explore boutiques that are less flashy than the ones in Xinyi, head to Da’an. The neighborhood is also teeming with beer halls. Craving for street food? Try Taipei’s stinky tofu. If you’re not fond of holding your breath, go for deep fried prawns, rice sausages, scallion pancakes and baked black pepper pork. It is also imperative that you try their sweet glass rice dumplings filled with egg custard, green tea, red bean, or taro. These are almost the same as those yummy Japanese glutinous rice cakes, only bigger.
