Favourite part of Taipei

Great place to hang out and escape from the summer heat. Visit during different seasons for variety in landscape scenery.

This place is very beautiful, went for the erziping trail and also xiao you keng. Xiao You Keng is a must go as you can witness one of the most beautiful scenery in Taiwan. The only downside is the mini shuttle bus which is a long wait (20 mins for each bus) and it is always packed like sardines. They... More

We entered the park in order to go to the hot springs. There are many places to go including Sulphur Valley. The name is accurate because you will have a strong smell of Sulphur as you travel through. We learned that this had a prior name of Grass Mountain because officlas during the Qing dynasty were concerned that thieves would... More

First attempt to climb this mountain failed after taking a direct bus to the YMS visitor centre from Dongmen. Weather steadily got worse as we approached the final stop at the Parking Lot, heavy rain and wind made it impossible to consider walking it. So we waited around with a bunch of other people for the next bus back into... More

Amazing national park in Taipei. Lots of different trails, can spend a whole day here. Lots of climbing and stairs. Bring water and food. The park also has a bus service that takes you to the start of different trails, but is infrequent.

All year round has a unique appeal. Spring azaleas and all kinds of flowers, as well as cherry blossom season, bamboo lake of the taro season, while the volcanic landscape and hot springs in the winter people feel warm.

Took the steepest and most difficult Miaopu Trail up the Seven Stars Peak (highest point of Taipei). It was really not an easy climb and not recommended for beginners. Remember to stock enough water and food for rest at the various stops. It was quite foggy when we reached the top due to the winter season so didn't managed to... More

The Yangmingshan National Park is easly reachable by bus from Taipei and provides beautiful natural sights and adventure. In total, we did three trips there, among which one to see the Yangmingshan summit, from which the view of Taipei is beautiful if the weather isn't cloudy/foggy, and one to see the roaming water buffaloes. Perfect for a day-trip, but beware... More

We took the R5 bus from JianTan MRT station 劍潭站 and initially thought it would be a good idea to first check out the visitor centre - it's not. The visitor centre was a 20-30min walk (one-way) from the YangMingShan Bus Terminal, and not much to see. We'd suggest taking the #108 bus immediately upon alighting from the R5 bus,... More
