The first stop on your Taipei night tour is the iconic landmark, Taipei 101. This shining skyscraper was once the tallest building in the world that reaches a height of 508 meters, towering over the skyline of Taipei. The building has 101 stories, with an observatory deck on the 89th floor, where the visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of Taipei City. Not only that, it has one of the top 3 fastest elevators in the world; from the 5th to the 89th floor, it only takes 37 seconds.
The skyscraper is adjoined by a multilevel shopping mall—Taipei 101 Mall. The mall houses hundreds of fashionable stores and restaurants, along with a food court and a supermarket. From luxury brands to fast fashion retailers, from Michelin star restaurants to cheap eats, you can always find something for your there.
After that, it’s time enjoy a delectable Xiaolongbao dinner at the Michelin Bib Gourmand selected, world-renowned restaurant chain—Din Tai Fung.
Din Tai Fung was founded in Taiwan in 1958, initially a cooking oil retailer, and then transformed to a restaurant serving Xiaolongbao in 1972. Today, the restaurant is renowned for its juicy and savory Xiaolongbao (steamed pork dumplings) that are wrapped with paper-thin dough wrappers and folded exquisitely with 18 perfect folds.
In addition to Xiaolongbao, a number of its signature dishes will be served, such as hot and sour soup, shredded pork fried rice, seasonal vegetable, etc. (menu items are subject to change according to seasonality and availability)
Besides the luxurious shopping malls and the fine dining restaurants, Taiwan is also well-known for the night markets. Of course, you won’t miss out on that during your Taipei night tour! After dinner, you will visit the bustling Raohe Street Tourist Night Market.
If you still have room for dessert or snack after dinner, the dazzling array of food stalls in the night market won’t let you down! Black pepper bun, oyster vermicelli, spare ribs stewed in herbal soup, iced sweet glutinous rice dumplings and many more, will make you eat nonstop.
After a food adventure at Raohe Street Tourist Night Market, you can take a walk across the Rainbow Bridge nearby.
The red-painted bridge spans Keelung River, which can be accessed by foot and by bicycle. Strolling on the bridge, you enjoy the city lights over the other side of the river.
Before the end of the night tour, you will make a visit to Songshan Ciyou Temple and experience Taiwan’s religious beliefs and practices.
The temple was built in 1753, dedicated to “Black Faced Mazu”, Goddess of the Sea. The three tiered roof is richly decorated with Chinese traditional ornaments, such as the flying dragons and the figures of deities, featuring the Chinese myths; the ornaments are crafted with Koji Pottery. The stone lions at the main gate are worth taking a look at, too. The male lion is portrayed with an open mouth, and female lion with a closed mouth, symbolizing “yin and yang” in Taoist metaphysics. The interior of the temple is just as amazing, that you will come to find out.
Your tour ends with a drop-off at MRT Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station.
