Highlights
    What to Expect
    Start your city tour of Taipei by meeting your guide at the Daan Park MRT station. Gather with your small group for a bicycle fitting before embarking on your ride. Cycle past ponds and pavilions along a recreational pathway through the 64-acre (26-hectare) Daan Forest Park (aka Da'an Park), arriving at tranquil Qingtian Street for a guided tour. 

    Admire Qingtian Geo 76, a Japanese-style heritage home, before your next bike stop in downtown Taipei: Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. If time allows, see the Changing of the Guards before a guided tour of this regal monument to the former president.

    Drop off your bike around midday, then follow your guide on foot to Yongkang Street to fulfill your appetite from the many food stalls, restaurants and cafés (own expense). Your guide can recommend traditional Taiwanese specialties such as steam-fried baozi (dumplings), beef noodles and stewed minced pork.

    After lunch, it’s a 15-minute ride by MRT to the Xiangshan Hiking Trail at Elephant Mountain. Climb the dozens of steep steps to the viewpoint for a panoramic vista over the city skyline, which is punctuated by the towering Taipei 101 skyscraper.

    Then your guide accompanies you by public bus on a 30-minute ride to Songshan Cultural and Creative Park. Finish your full-day itinerary with a guided tour of the old tobacco building, now a design exhibition space commonly referred to as the ‘Creative Hub of Taipei.’ Note: some areas are free of charge, while others are at your own expense.

    Your guide can point you in the direction of your next destination from the nearby MRT station.

    This tour definitely exceeded my expectations. We rode the u-bikes around the city, caught the MRT and also a bus. It was a great way to see a side of Taipei that I didn’t really know about. We also completed part of the Elephant trail hike to see a view of Taipei 101. It was a
