Taipei is one of those underrated cities overshadowed by much larger and more powerful neighbours nearby. That is starting to change as visitors discover the city's great value for money and interesting food offering.

Fujian settlers came in the early 18th century to develop trading centres here for tea and camphor. During the Japanese colonial period, the city plan was laid out and there were grand public buildings, parks, and railways. After the Communist victory in 1949, Taipei got more and more gritty. That being said, the city is rejuvenating its older buildings bit by bit, although it is still not as congested or busy as other nearby big cities such as Hong Kong and Shanghai.
