Taipei City the National Capital of the Republic of China

Aug 18, 2007
Taipei City is the national capital of the Republic of China. Taipei, situated at the centre of the Taipei Basin of the Taiwan Province and to the right bank of Danshui River, is the political, economic, cultural and educational centre of the province and Taiwans biggest city as well. As early as four to five hundred years ago, it was a marshland covered with thick forests.

There are many other places of historic interest and scenic beauty, such as the Taipei City Gate, the Long Shan Temple, Bao An Palace and Confucian Temple, just to enumerate a few.

The largest market is the Shinlin market is also one of the oldest markets featuring a wide variety of bargain goods ranging from clothing, footwear, accessories and food items such as tofu, Chinese sausage, and Portuguese egg tarts are available in this market.

Taipei has a semi tropical climate characterized by hot and humid weather. The most comfortable season to visit is the fall, when the rainfall is at its lowest and the temperatures average a pleasant mid 20. February to April is particularly damp with little sunlight, while the summers can be very hot, but often punctuated by heavy thunder showers. Taipei is prone to typhoons from May to October, though the highest concentrations are in August and September.

The Government in Taipei wants to get visitors to travel to Taiwan. It is a very safe place, so you need not worry about criminal cases beside pickpockets.

Taipei City itself has a population of almost 3 million. Today the city has expanded into surrounding towns in the Taipei County, and this makes the Greater Taipei's population reach approximately 6 million. The significant population growth in Greater Taipei is the result of people moving to the city in search for better economic and educational opportunities in the past several decades. The increase of population leads to rising land prices and less job vacancies, so that it has become more difficult in recent years to find a place to live and work in the city.

Taipei provides both business and leisure travellers with a multifunctional oasis including comfortable staying, gourmet dining, recreation, and business meeting conferencing services

It offers sunny beaches, richly forested mountains, and sleepy countrysides. Temples and monuments of both Chinese and Japanese heritage mix with high rises in cities that keep going until dawn. Dazzling festivals, luxuriant hot springs, delectable dining them all lie in store.

Its diverse topography and culture, and its vibrant commercial environment, make it a choice destination for traveller and business visitor alike.
