Taipei Shore Excursion – The Border of Old and New Taipei (台北) (Private Tour)
We highly recommend this city tour for independent or business travelers who enjoy the rush of a bustling metropolitan city but still seek a blend of the old-world culture. The perfect way to see the highlights of the city for even just a morning or an afternoon, this flexible tour also accommodates what you wish to see off the beaten path!
Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall
Standing as the symbol of Kuomintang and Taiwan’s first President Chiang Kai Shek, the massive commemorative monument mirrors the “Clear blue sky, white sun, and a wholly red earth” described in the the national anthem in its architecture. Here you can watch the changing of guards on the hour in the main hall, and visit the National Theater and Concert Hall located nearby.
The Tallest Skyscraper in Taiwan: Taipei 101
When you overlook the low-rise city landscape of Taipei, you’ll see that it’s worth waiting in line to get a God’s-eye-view of the city. The elevators in 101 rocket you up to the 89th floor in only 37 seconds where you can sit atop the pride and joy of architecture in Taiwan.
