說明 Introduction

Taipei (台北 or 臺北; Táiběi) is the national capital of Taiwan. 
It is located in the northern part of the island in a basin between the Yangming Mountains and the Central Mountains. 
With 2.6 million inhabitants, Taipei (台北 or 臺北; Táiběi) is one of the most densely populated city in the world. However, the Greater Taipei metropolitan area, which includes Taipei City, the surrounding New Taipei City and Keelung, represents the largest urban cluster in Taiwan with nearly 7 million people.

Taipei City has a very clean, efficient and safe Mass Rapid Transit system, known as the MRT. Women and/or children traveling at night can benefit from the Safe Zones - sections of platforms that are under heavy surveillance - located in some of the subway lines. Stations and trains (including the monorail) are wheelchair-friendly, but please be noted that when there are multiple exits from a single station, usually only one of these is equipped with a lift.

Taipei is well known for its food culture - a mix of Chinese, Japanese with Western influences. You can enjoy local specialities in one of the numerous night markets around the town:
