Itinerary

Schedule:

Meeting with your Tour guide/Assistant at Taipei 101 Mrt Station exit 5 (Red Line ) around 10.00.

We will start with Taipei's masterpiece: Taipei 101 tower. The tour guide will lead you at the top of the tower to enjoy the stunning sightseeing of the capital from the second tallest tower in the world.  
You will reach the top floor with the fastest elevator in the world. The lifts take just 40 seconds from ground level to the 89th floor, situated at 382 mt and have atmospheric pressure regulatory systems to avoid discomfort (ears 'popping') for the occupants.
Taipei 101 is designed to withstand the typhoon winds and earthquake tremors that are common in the area east of Taiwan also thanks to its giant Mass Dumper. Essentially acting as a giant pendulum, the enormous steel sphere moves slightly back and forth to counter any motion of the building itself. It is an engineering marvel meant to limit the vibrations of the 1,667-foot tall building.

On the way to Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall you will have the chance to try the famous Taiwan bubble's tea.

We will head to another of the most famous places in Taipei: Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall.
It is a memorial to the Republic of China's National Father, Dr. Sun Yat-sen, and was completed on 1972.Enjoy the changing of the guards in front of Sun Yat Sen statue.  

By metro you will then go to visit the very mystic temple in Taipei: Longshan Temple. It was founded in 1738 and dedicated to the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy (Kuan-in in Chinese, or Avalokitesvara in Sanskrit).
After the visit of the temple a little walk in to the famous Herbs alley: Herb Alley 青草巷  (pinyin: Qīngcǎo Xiàng) is a minor attraction immediately adjacent to the famous   Lóngshān Temple 龍山寺  in Wànhuá District 萬華區, Taipei 台北.
Hundreds of years ago, long before western medicine came to   Taiwan 台灣, it was common for people to visit the temple, pray to the relevant gods, and receive herbal prescriptions for whatever ailed them....

Surrounded by a night market and a Snake alley, this area is full of interesting and local alleys waiting to be discovered.

We will finish our tour in the night market enjoying some local food ( not included )!
