"Taiwan - Map of Taipei surroundings" Top 5 Page for this destination Asia Favorite Tip by SLLiew

Asia General: 161 reviews and 117 photos


Favorite thing: Taipei is located at the northern point of Taiwan island along a river near the sea and at the foothill.

On the map, you will appreciate that to the east is the Straits of Taiwan and to the east is the East China Sea and Pacific Ocean.

Just driving a few hours out of Taipei, you will be in the mountains, valley or sea.

With a map, we went north by train to Tanshui - a place famous for some local dishes.

And headed east to the coast to see the fantastic stone "statutes" carved by the sea.

And south to the valley and hills of Wulai.

To the east is Taoyuan and the international airport.
