    We really enjoyed walking through the Sand Sculptures at the Festival. It's amazing to see how detailed the works of art can be. We visited during the morning on a Sunday and found that it was relatively uncrowded.

    Miniatures are impressive. I bought tiny souvenirs in the gift shop for coworkers. I was more impressed by the gift shop than anything else. Spent about an hour here. The landmark minis were my favorites.

    The huge memorial hall atop a huge stair case was centrally placed with beautiful flowered garden around. Nice to visit and know some history and pay some respects.
    Visited in Oct 2018.

    Elephant Mountain is one of my favourite hiking trails, but it's best for those who are young and fit. It's also known as the Nangang District Hiking Trail. The Chinese name is Xiang Shan, or Elephant Mountain. The hike is around a mile (1.5 km). It's convenient to get to, it's not far from Taipei 101, Taiwan's tallest building. Just take the MRT Red Line to the terminus -- Xiangshan Station -- and take exit 2. The Trail provides a good view of Taipei City. and Taipei 101,

    This is a great place for worship and I love the beautiful architecture! It isn't too crowded if you visit on a weekday.

    This is the most famous Temple in Taipei.

    Dating back to 1738, this temple was originally a Buddhist temple. It was dedicated to Guanyin (觀世音, Avalokiteśvara, one of the Buddhist bodhisattva), which is a branch spirit from Guanyin of the Lungshan Temple at Jin-Jiang county, Fujian province (福建省晉江縣). Then it was named after its root temple.

    Destroyed and rebuilt for several times, the temple now worships gods of three religions: Buddhist, Taoist and Ruism (Confucianism).

    To improve air quality and to better protect the environment, Taiwan started a movement to encourage temples to ban incense burning since 2014.

    There is no incense in this temple. Great!!.

    The azalea is the official flower of Taipei. Its toughness and resilience symbolize Taipei City -- no matter how many challenges it has faced as the years have passed by, Taipei stands proud and resilient, filled with vitality and energy. Taipei's azaleas bloom in force in the South Town area every spring, and you frequently encounter these pastel beauties right on the street.

    Taipei City hold the Taipei Azalea Festival in Daan Park every March. During the festival period the park is bursting with blooming azaleas and other flowers. We strongly recommend that you visit famous Yongkang Street, which is nearby, first trying our tasty local Taipei specialty foods, then walking about 8min to Daan Park to enjoy the afternoon sunshine and beautiful azaleas. You can also enjoy the varied open-air music performances held at designated times. This will be a very relaxing mini-tour, relaxing and refreshing both your body and mind. If you plan to visit Taipei in spring, you must not miss this opportunity.

    Yangming Shan National Park is an area near Taipei, bordering on Beitou and New Taipei. While it could not be called a wilderness, it certainly has some wide open spaces. Among the attractions are Qixing Mountain, a dormant volcano which has a marvellous view of Taipei. It is the tallest dormant volcano in the Taipei area. The park also has evidence of volcanic activity, including hot springs.

    We took the metro and walked here from the nearest station. The temple was rather quiet when we came, unlike the nearby Bao An temple which was crowded.

    Also known as Xingtian Temple, this is a famous temple on the corner of a major intersection, along Minquan Road. This temple is devoted to Guan Yu, patron saint of business people. Occupying over 7000 square meters, the temple was constructed in 1967 so despite how old it looks, it is a recent design. In an effort to reduce air pollution, this temple became the first to ban burning of incense.

    The side street next to the temple offers many affordable street foods, which is nice.

    There appear to be countless temples all over Taipei and this one is quite famous.

    The metro station for this area is by the name of the temple: Xingtian Temple Station, across the street from the temple.

    Ximen has a lot of shopping stores, if you are a person love shopping, you will love it. In there, you can find some delicious food including the latest dessert and traditional taiwaness food. Also, you can buy some souvenir here. The ximen red hous also have some stores, the store there is about traditional and artical things. You can find some historical atmosphere in the ximen red house. Sometimes, you can find some street perfomers in Ximen. I have seen some performaces playing bells, and many people stay around them. It's a lively place.

    The Songshan Ciyou Temple is right next to the Raohe Night Market. My main goal was to visit the market, but I saw this temple and could not just walk by it. This temple is huge and so decorative and colorful. I love how detailed the roofs and architecture are of the temples in Taipei and this was among my favorites. I saw both locals and tourists here, it was nice to see how respectful and quiet everyone was. You can take the green line to get close to the area. There are many other attractions and shopping markets in the area. Highly recommended!

    As parks go, this park is probably utilized the most by the locals as you can find lots of children’s outdoor equipment to play on, many statues or monuments and lots of practical recreational things. I thought it was interesting. The park, however, is the home of the Lin An Tai Historical House and Museum. The Lin An Tai House is a definite tourist destination so when you come to see it, hang out a bit and walk around the park.
