I always find it overwhelming when I travel to the other side of the world. Taipei was spicy, rough, and stunning. A city that holds all you can ever wish for as a tourist. Tropical heat and palm tree parks on every corner, temples and historical art, friendly people everywhere and lovely nature. The street food was as good as any fine dining restaurant could serve you.
If you want to visit, you should travel off season. The hot and humid climate makes it better and even more beautiful to go to Taipei during fall.
