Visit a selection of the most emblematic places of the capital of Taiwan, taking a look at its history and culture, from one of its oldest temples to the fascinating architecture of the tallest skyscraper in Taiwan.
In addition, enjoy a unique experience like the fortune telling with a professional Master and its little sparrows (optional visit).
In this trip we will visit the most representative points of the city. In the morning we will depart from Keelung port and head to Taipei, where we will visit Longshan Temple, the oldest in the city and where we will enjoy its unique atmosphere.
In the underground shopping mall directly below this temple is where we can find many fortune telling booths, connected by the divine influence of the temple. If we want to, we’ll be able to discover one’s fate through the help of little fate reading sparrows. Under the guidance of their Master, they will resolve any personal issues or conflicts like love, health and wealth.
Fortune telling is a tradition practiced regularly in Taiwan and usually found around temples and night markets.
From Longshan temple and the master sparrows we will visit the outside of the Presidential Palace of Taiwan, a building full of history built during the Japanese occupation.
Next, we will go to the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, a mausoleum to the former dictator who ruled Taiwan for decades and that is located next to the majestic buildings of the National Theater and the National Auditorium.
From there we will go to the impressive Taipei 101 skyscraper, where we will contemplate its architecture and walk around its shopping center, where we will stop for lunch.
Din Tai Fung is one of the most famous Xiaolongbao restaurants in the world with an establishment inside Taipei 101.
After lunch we’ll stroll around the nearby 44 South Village to discover the history of the Chinese military and their families who took refugee in Taiwan on 40’s.
Lastly and if we still have time, we’ll pay a visit to Confucius and Baoan temples before ending the visit and heading back to the cruise ship in Keelung port.
