DescriptionDiscover Taipei on this guided tour of the city and learn about the city's rich history, both past and present. After the pickup, visit the Grand Hotel, the first five-star hotel in Taiwan and learn why it has a secret channel. Then, head to the National Palace Museum, one of the world’s largest museums with a rich collection of nearly 700,000 pieces of ancient Chinese artifacts and artworks through 8,000 years of Chinese civilization. Continue on to visit the fascinating neighborhood of Dadaocheng, where streets and alleys present you with a mix of history and present, tradition and modernity. Then, marvel at the atmospheric Dihua for its chic cafés, traditional shops, and mini art galleries. Move on to the monument Cheng-en Gate, which was built hundreds of years ago and is one of the five historic gates in Taipei.
