Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, is an international city with superb restaurants, modern hotels, ancient temples, churches, and an active nightlife. Taipei is also internationally known for its traditional Taiwanese and neo-Chinese cuisine. The National Palace Museum, located at the northwest edge of the city, contains the greatest collection of Chinese art in the world. Nestled in a basin surrounded by the well-hiked Yangming Mountains, greater Taipei is a bustling, high-tech city with some six million residents.
