Set against a backdrop of lush subtropical hills, Taipei rewards targeted sightseeing and carefree ambling in equal measure. Behind the shiny veneer of the modern metropolis lie narrow lanes waiting to be explored. Choose a variety of attractions to absorb the city's colorful diversity, from its aboriginal origins to its Chinese, Western and Japanese heritage, from the volcanic geology to the modern-day forest of cloud-scraping buildings. Note that many museums are closed Mondays.
