Global City
The Greater Taipei metropolitan area represents the largest urban cluster in Taiwan with nearly 7 million people. Taipei has often been skipped by travelers in favor of other East Asian cities, but those who take the time to visit Taipei and look around will soon find that Taipei is just as vibrant as any other major city, and is full of a certain charm which makes it unique in its own right.

The downtown area is culturally divided into East and West. The West side, with its narrow streets and road side vendors, is considered the bastion of old Taipei life. East Taipei, with its classy malls, chic boutiques, and stylish restaurants and cafes, is reminiscent of those found in Tokyo, Paris or New York represents the city's metamorphosis into a modern and international city.
Museums
Taipei is a city of museums, especially those devoted to Chinese art.

The most important of these is the National Palace Museum, which holds world's best collection of Chinese historical artifacts and antiquities.

Other museums cover national history, Formosan aborigines, modern art, and many other types of content.
Combination
Scenic Local Market

Night markets

Several night markets are located in each district, all of them open until around midnight. These consist of restaurants and stores at the permanent locations and little booths along the center. Every night market has a huge variety of food, so any night market you find is a good bet for good food. Because of the vast selection, the recommendation is to go with a few people and share the food.

The most famous is the Shilin Night Market, but locals in Taipei view Shilin as touristy, with food catering to the tastes of mainland Chinese visitors. Another option is Ning Xia Yeshi.
