Taipei City, lying in the Taipei Basin of northern Taiwan, is the Taiwan region's capital and has been the center of government, business, and entertainment since the restoration of Taiwan in 1945. The population density of Taiwan is quite high. The city stretches from the Keelung River in the northeast to the Xindian River in the southwest, covering an area of 67,156 acres, which accounts for only 0.75% of the whole Taiwan region. However, Taipei, which has 2.65 million inhabitants, accounts for 12% of the total population, and includes 6 million migrants from outside Taipei, is growing rapidly, making the city very crowded.
Taipei 101, Taiwan's well-known landmark, used to be the tallest building in the world. Visitors taking the high-speed elevator up to the observatory on the 89th floor get a wonderful view of Taipei city. There is also Xiangshan—Elephant Mountain—which is another good choice for enjoying the best night view over Taipei. Visitors get a spectacular bird's eye view from these two spots. When visiting Taiwan, never miss out a visit to the night market crammed full of delicious foods. Whether it be the Ningxia, Raohe, or Shilin night market, you will absolutely fall in love with it.
