Taipei, rich with Chinese traditions, is an interesting city to explore especially if you like Chinese snacks. Being just ~1.5 hours of flight time from Hong Kong, it's a great destination for a weekend trip.

The main attractions include:

With Taipei's convenient Metro subway system, aka MRT, it is very easy to get around. And it greatly reduces the chance of getting lost.

Worth mentioning is how well the passengers line up. During peak hours, the lines to get aboard would snake around but the orderliness is absolutely amazing - and nice. Taipei transportation
