Free Taiwanese Culture Tour
At the agreed time we'll meet at the Daan Park central station to start a free walking tour around Taipei.
Accompanied by our guide, we'll discover the authentic side of Taipei starting with Daan Park. The forest park, known as the 'lungs of Taipei city', occupies nearly 26 hectares and was designed to be similar to Central Park, New York and Hyde Park, London.
We'll continue on from the park to the Qingtian neighbourhood, where we'll discover traditional tea shops and stroll along Heaven Road. The beautiful winding path goes through a paddy field surrounded by impressive mountain scenery. Discover how it acquired its name on the tour!
Afterwards, we'll head towards the centre of Taipei until we reach Yong Kang street, the food hub of Taiwan. Here you'll learn more about traditional Taiwanese cuisine and the secrets to the most famous Taipei recipes, as well as typical dishes from other Asian countries.
Finally, our last stop on the tour will be the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial. This famous landmark was built in memory of the former President of the Republic of China, and throughout history has been used for democratic demonstrations. We'll admire the majestic architecture of the monument and learn more about political relations between Taiwan and China.
