Day 02: Taipei city highlights travel
Today your privately guided Taipei tour will begin from the Longshan Temple, which is the most popular temple in Taipei with over 100 deities and 7 incense burners. You will find that three main Chinese traditional religions are worshipped here, Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. If possible, try to get here before 9 a.m., when the temple comes alive with a daily Buddhist chanting ceremony. Then we will move on to the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, one of the city's most recognizable landmarks built in honor of Chiang Kai-shek. From 9:00 to 17:00 on the hour, you can watch the solemn changing of the guard ceremony.

Afterwards, visit the city's most visible landmark, Taipei 101. On a clear day, you'll get an amazing 360-degree view of the city from the observation deck. Also, there is the famous Din Tai Fung restaurant, where you can have lunch at your own expense if you are interested.

In the afternoon, we will take you to the National Palace Museum, which is an impressive museum to see the most important cultural works in the history of Chinese civilization. This museum has a collection of about 650,000 pieces of cultural relics and treasures, including ceramics, bronzes, lacquerware, calligraphy, manuscripts, ancient carapaces, textiles and furniture etc. Don’t miss three treasures of the museum: the Jadeite Cabbage, the Meat-shaped Stone and the Mao Gong Ding.

One of the most attractive places in Taipei is the lively night market. After the visit, we will drop you off at one of the most well-known and popular night markets in Taipei, the Shilin Night Market. It’s a paradise for exploring Taiwanese street food and shopping. Enjoy your time there and then get back to the hotel on your own.

Day 03: Visit the Yehliu Geopark, Jiufen & Pingxi
Today we will take a leisurely suburban tour of the Yehliu Geopark, Jiufen and Pingxi towns that are not far from Taipei.

Heading to the north coast of Taiwan, you will reach the Yehliu Geological Park in about 1 hour. Due to the natural action of wave erosion and weathering, the coast here forms a unique geological landscape. Many rock formations have been named based on the imagination of their shapes, such as Sea Candles, fairy shoes, Elephant Rock, and ice cream Rock. The most famous of these is the 4,000-year-old Queen's head, so named because one side of it is thought to resemble a woman's head.

After that, drive to Jiufen, once a bustling remote gold mining town but now a popular tourist destination known for its maze of alleys, quaint historic buildings and teahouses. Stroll around this mountain town and don't forget to sample local snacks like ginger tea, fish ball soup, sweet bean reed, taro circles, etc.

Then we'll continue our drive to the quaint village of Shifen in Pingxi, which is famous not only for its food, customs and ancient tracks, but also for its sky lanterns. You'll start with a short visit to the Shimen Waterfall, then walk along the old street, and at last experience the sky lanterns. Sky lanterns used to be the railway signals, but now visitors can buy lanterns, write their wishes on them and release them to hope their wishes to come true.

After the tour finishes, we will drive you back to your hotel in Taipei.
