Surrounded by mountains—a journey of discovery awaits you in Taipei. Meaning “ Northern Taiwan” and located in the Taipei Basin, the city was founded in the early part of the 18th century. Le Méridien Taipei is ideally situated in the dynamic central business district. Guests will enjoy easy access to corporate headquarters, retail malls and Taipei’s main, must-see attractions. Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) is reachable by car in approximately 50 minutes.
Eyes wide open—we provide a stimulating and refined base for exploring. Boasting magnificent, panoramic views, Taipei 101—the world’s second tallest building—has a 382 metre high observatory on the 89th floor. The city also has myriad ornate temples. The National Palace Museum—deemed one of the world’s four best museums, has the world’s largest collection of Chinese artifacts. It houses over 700,000 articles; some date back 5,000 years. Displays are rotated every three months, so each visit promises to be different. Art aficionados looking for some authentic local art will enjoy the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. Previously the home of the city government, the majority of the artworks found here were created by Taiwanese artists. Famous for its hot-spring baths—the Yangmingshan National Park is another must-see attraction.
Shoppers will find the retail experiences in Taipei irresistible. Ximending is Taipei’s largest pedestrian zone and consumer district. The maze of streets and alleys are filled with shops selling fashion accessories, clothing, local cuisine, electronics, books and all the latest in Taiwanese chic.
