Will you still be standing after trawling these Taipei bars? Well, at least cabs are never a problem.
Dining, dancing, and even some late night shopping. NONE of the busy energy that hums through the crowded streets of Taipei City during the daytime is lost when the sun recedes behind Taiwan’s lush, rolling mountains. As the last ebbing rays dance on the surface of the two rivers coursing through this basin city, residents change gear and come out to play. The brash and bawdy Combat Zone with its seedy bars and leggy women more interested in commerce than conversation has faded into oblivion with city upgrades, but there is much to sample for travellers of all stripes. We walk you from the innocent to the insane.
A full stomach is a critical part of a fun night out in Taipei, and this multi-cultural metropolis suffers no shortage of restaurants. From local to international to fusion, various Asian cultures collide in the cuisine of Taipei. The original restaurant started in 1958 and still stands on Xinyi Road by Yongkang Street. Din Tai Feng’s storefront is impossible to miss, as there is always a steady stream of customers lined up out front. For those who simply must have a taste of Din Tai Feng’s soup dumplings but don’t have the patience to wait for a seat at the Xinyi location, the restaurant has four other branches in the city.
