Housing over 2.6 million residents, Taipei serves as the political, economic, and cultural hub of Taiwan. From gleaming skyscrapers like the awe-inspiring Taipei 101 to historical sites like the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, your adventure is sure to be unforgettable.

Tackling the Traffic

Compared to driving on the left lane in the UK, you'll find that people here drive on the right side of the road. While Taipei's traffic can be congested, a little patience and driving etiquette go a long way.

Choosing the Right Car

Considering Taipei's bustling traffic and narrower streets, a compact car might be the best option. It's easier to manoeuvre and park. However, if comfort is a priority, and you're planning for inter-city drives, a sedan or an SUV could be a better fit.

Parking Insights

Parking spaces in Taipei are usually offered as pay-by-the-hour lots in the city. Use the "Roadside Parking Payment" app for easier payment. Be aware of the "blue and white" roadside markings indicating legal parking spaces.

Speed Limit and Road Rules

The speed limit in Taipei city areas is usually around 50km/h which may be significantly slower than what you're used to. Also, Taiwan follows a strict rule against drunk driving with a very low alcohol limit. So, it's better to refrain from driving if you've been drinking.

Exploring the City and Beyond

Must-visit attractions include Taipei 101, the National Palace Museum, and Ximending Shopping District. And no visit to Taiwan is complete without a trip to the beautiful outskirts like Jiufen and Shifen.

The Local Climate

Taipei's climate is subtropical with humidity levels that can surprise some Brits. With heavy rains in summer (June to August) and mild, cooler winters (November to March), it's best to check the weather forecast before your trip.

Money Matters

The official currency is the New Taiwanese Dollar (NTD). Credit cards are widely accepted. Also, remember, it's always handy to carry some cash as smaller vendors may not take cards.

Seasonal Events

Taipei enjoys a rich calendar of annual events. Some standouts are the Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival around February and the Duanwu Festival with dragon boat races in June, offering unique local experiences.
