The Taipei Botanical Garden plays a vital role in preserving the region's horticultural specimens. Be sure to stop in and support the important work that they do.

For fresh air and relaxation, pack some lunch and find a shady nook at one of the area's leafy urban parks, such as Youth Park or Dahu Park. Daan Forest Park and Taipei 228 Memorial Park are two more pleasant spots to while away the day and finally read that neglected book of yours.

If you want useful information about Taipei, talk with the staff at Cihu Visitor Center.

Every year a huge amount of water streams off the edge of Wulai Waterfalls and Shifen. Find your way to a comfortable vantage point and enjoy Mother Nature's spectacle. The untouched beauty of Golden Waterfall and Gold Falls is also something special.

The science museums here boast diverse collections of artifacts and displays. Immerse yourself in the wonderful world of science when you visit Taipei Astronomical Museum or the National Taiwan Science Education Centre.

Some travelers think of natural museums as a place to take the kids, but the alluring collections of the National Taiwan Museum and the Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines prove that there's a good deal to keep the adults busy too. The Shihsanheng Museum of Archaeology and the Kaidagelan Cultural Museum are also well worth a visit.

Slip back through the mists of time to examine the enlightening exhibits at the Museum of the Institute of History and Philology and the National Museum of History.

Learn more about this area's past with a trip to the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, just two of the historic buildings and sites here. When it comes to days of old, there's always something else to know. Taipei Story House and Wuchih Mountain Military Cemetery are two more great places to stop by.

Military history buffs will enjoy seeing Ershawan Fort and Fort San Domingo, two examples of the region's various historical forts and strongholds. You might also like to admire the interesting design of Baimiwong Fort and Dawulun Fort.

The area's spiritual side can be glimpsed at the Longshan Temple and the Confucius Temple. If you want to look at some more religious sites, check for guided tours at National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine and the Xingtian Temple.

After you've experienced all the major attractions around Taipei, take the time to see some of its lesser-known sights. Taipei Bridge and Sanxia Old Street are well worth a look. Also, contemplate seeing Guang Fu Bridge and Bopiliao Old Street if you can squeeze it in.
