Taiwan has an unbeatable mix of history, culture and food. If you are looking to experience the most authentic part of Taiwan in 24 hours, Taipei should be on the top of your list. 

Start the day with a delicious local Taipei breakfast along the bustling street of Taipei – steamed buns, dumplings, turnip cakes, onion pancakes, fried doughnut along with a bowl of warm soy milk just to name a few. We recommend the Yong He Soy Milk King, the local favourite!

Chiang Kai Shek
