Maokong Gondola, Country and Taipei
Maokong Gondola, Country and Taipei


There are many day trips you can make from Taipei in Taiwan.  Click through the pictures to see where you can go and read more.

Keelung City and Harbour, Taiwan



Check out the harbour city of Keelung on the north east side of Taiwan.  We enjoyed the harbour views, stair climbing in Zhingzheng National Park and then experienced one of the best Night Markets in Taiwan.


Yangmingshan National Park


We climbed Mt Qixing in Yangmingshan National Park. We weren't quite used to climbing stairs to get to the top of a mountain. What a lovely morning with beautiful views.



Beautiful Buildings In Tamsui


Tamsui in Taipei is where the local Taiwanese people who live in Taipei head on the weekends. Sunday is the day you should go if you are really wanting to experience the tourist hub of Tamsui.


Maokong Gondola, Country and Taipei


The Maokong Gondola just on the outskirts of Taipei is a really enjoyable day trip.  We experienced beautiful scenery and traditional tea tasting in the country side of Taiwan.


Hsinchu City Zoo, mothers welcome


Hsinchu, an hour away on Taiwan's TRA Train System, led us to Taiwan's oldest zoo, Hsinchu City Zoo. It's a little rough around the edges but a great day out for all ages.


Steps To The Free Foot Spas Of Beitou Hot Springs



Beitou is the Hot Spring capital of Taipei. Here you can bathe in natural hot spring water, enjoy beautiful gardens and free museums. Lovely!


UPDATE: Since publishing this we have written about another day trip from Taipei, take a day trip to the Pinxi train line and Shifen

Also, if you want even more information we have an extensive Taiwan travel guide.
