Expect noise, smog, historic temples and hi-tech buildings when you stay at a hostel in Taipei, Taiwan. Catch a stomach-churning 40mph lift up to the 91st floor of Taipei 101, one of the tallest buildings in the world, for panoramic views over Taipei. The Wanhua District is the city’s oldest district where you’ll find historic Longshan Temple and The Red House Theatre which is the largest tearoom and playhouse in Taiwan. There are also many night markets in the district, the most well known being ‘Snake Alley’: a name it earned because of its prominent trade in snake soup and meat. For an escape from the chaos of the city, go on one of the Four Beasts hikes outside Taipei. Depending on which path you take, you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view of the city at the end as well as lots of fascinating hidden discoveries along the way.
