Chinatown-Bangkok
Taipei One-Day City Tour (from Keelung Port)
The tour will take travelers to Taipei City. First stop at the National Palace Museum. Originally founded within the walls of the Beijing Forbidden City in 1925, the present-day National Palace Museum moved to Taipei's Shilin District following the Republic of China government relocation in 1949 with an official opening for the public in 1965. Over 600,000 of the most precious artefacts within the collection were moved to Taiwan to prevent their desecration during and after the Chinese Civil War. The museum celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2015 and is said to host the largest number of ancient artefacts, even more than the Forbidden City in Beijing.

Next, stop at the Martyrs' Shrine (officially known as the National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine). Built in 1969, the shrine was built to honour the fallen Kuomintang soldiers after the Chinese Civil War, and is home to around 390,000 spirit tablets honouring the lives and sacrifices of the KMT soldiers during the war against the communists in mainland China.The front gate is guarded by active Republic of China military personnel, and visitors are welcome to observe the changing of the guard at the top of every hour until 5pm.

Originally constructed in 1742 as a wooden shrine, the Bao'an Temple is 900 square metre large and faces south; in line with Feng-Shui practices. The buildings also run from tallest to shortest in that order, in observance of Confucian principles. Bao'an Temple is especially well-known for the Baosheng Cultural Festival, where participants and locals march in a parade to worship agricultural gods and perform cultural activities such as the renowned fire-walking ritual. 

A trip to Taipei would not be completed without a visit to Taipei 101 tower. The tower is not only known for offering panoramic view of Taipei city, but for breaking the Guinness World Record for high-speed elevator - taking only 37 seconds to ascend to the observatory at the 89th floor.

The most prominent historical landmark in Taiwan, the CKS Memorial Hall was erected in honor and memory of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, the former President of the Republic of China. The octagon-shaped white building rises 76 meters and is covered with blue tiles and red accents, echoing the flag of the Republic of China. The eight sides represent the Chinese cultural symbolism of the number eight which is traditionally associated with fortune and wealth. The two sets of 89 steps represent Chiang's age of death and lead up to main hall housing a large bronze statue of Chiang protected by military personnel which change hourly.
