Taipei is probably one of Asia’s best kept secrets; there is always something to do; shopping in some of the world’s biggest designer filled shopping malls; night street markets offering everything from exotic fruits to the latest trainers and the not-to-be-missed 101 Tower – the tallest building in Taiwan offering a bird’s eye view of city and surrounding mountings of Taipei.
Culture Vultures have an endless choice of things to do, from hot springs to museums, palaces to Buddha temples. When it comes to eating out there are hundreds of restaurants to suit every taste and budget.
Taipei has a vibrant and fun gay scene offering something for everyone, with over 20 gay bars and 3 gay clubs, not to mention the big parties being held over the pride weekend. Saturday night at the W hotel and the weekend circuit parties held by Hong Kong promoter Patrick Sun are some of the most popular.
