Taipei has long been underrated as a destination for tourists, as a week or two here will surely prove. The city houses quite a number of excellent museums, galleries, and historical sights that are well worth visiting. Admittedly, the first impression made on most people is a crowded and polluted urban jungle, but in time the many charms and paradoxes of this exciting place will show themselves.
