    We really enjoyed walking through the Sand Sculptures at the Festival. It's amazing to see how detailed the works of art can be. We visited during the morning on a Sunday and found that it was relatively uncrowded.

    Miniatures are impressive. I bought tiny souvenirs in the gift shop for coworkers. I was more impressed by the gift shop than anything else. Spent about an hour here. The landmark minis were my favorites.

    The huge memorial hall atop a huge stair case was centrally placed with beautiful flowered garden around. Nice to visit and know some history and pay some respects.
    Visited in Oct 2018.

    Elephant Mountain is one of my favourite hiking trails, but it's best for those who are young and fit. It's also known as the Nangang District Hiking Trail. The Chinese name is Xiang Shan, or Elephant Mountain. The hike is around a mile (1.5 km). It's convenient to get to, it's not far from Taipei 101, Taiwan's tallest building. Just take the MRT Red Line to the terminus -- Xiangshan Station -- and take exit 2. The Trail provides a good view of Taipei City. and Taipei 101,

    This is a great place for worship and I love the beautiful architecture! It isn't too crowded if you visit on a weekday.

    This is the most famous Temple in Taipei.

    Dating back to 1738, this temple was originally a Buddhist temple. It was dedicated to Guanyin (觀世音, Avalokiteśvara, one of the Buddhist bodhisattva), which is a branch spirit from Guanyin of the Lungshan Temple at Jin-Jiang county, Fujian province (福建省晉江縣). Then it was named after its root temple.

    Destroyed and rebuilt for several times, the temple now worships gods of three religions: Buddhist, Taoist and Ruism (Confucianism).

    To improve air quality and to better protect the environment, Taiwan started a movement to encourage temples to ban incense burning since 2014.

    There is no incense in this temple. Great!!.

    Da'an Forest Park is the pride of Taipei City. It's very large, with lots of trees. There's a large area just to stroll. There is a large playground for children, where they can run and play. Da'an Forest Park has a number of special features, including banyan trees, bamboo groves and a lake. The lake attracts a large variety of waterbirds and photographers waiting patiently to get that special shot. Getting to the park is easy -- there's an MRT station, and an underground car park.

    Half an hour by bus or taxi from downtown Taipei will take you to this splendid park, which is open all year round. Yangmingshan was known as "Grass Mountain" when US forces were stationed in Taipei. The park is famous for its cherry trees, which bloom in early spring. Most of the park is in a natural state. Qixing Mountain, known in Chinese as Seven Star Mountain, is a dormant volcano. It is one of the tallest mountains in northern Taiwan. The view from the top is impressive.

    We took the metro and walked here from the nearest station. The temple was rather quiet when we came, unlike the nearby Bao An temple which was crowded.

    Also known as Xingtian Temple, this is a famous temple on the corner of a major intersection, along Minquan Road. This temple is devoted to Guan Yu, patron saint of business people. Occupying over 7000 square meters, the temple was constructed in 1967 so despite how old it looks, it is a recent design. In an effort to reduce air pollution, this temple became the first to ban burning of incense.

    The side street next to the temple offers many affordable street foods, which is nice.

    There appear to be countless temples all over Taipei and this one is quite famous.

    The metro station for this area is by the name of the temple: Xingtian Temple Station, across the street from the temple.

    Ximen has a lot of shopping stores, if you are a person love shopping, you will love it. In there, you can find some delicious food including the latest dessert and traditional taiwaness food. Also, you can buy some souvenir here. The ximen red hous also have some stores, the store there is about traditional and artical things. You can find some historical atmosphere in the ximen red house. Sometimes, you can find some street perfomers in Ximen. I have seen some performaces playing bells, and many people stay around them. It's a lively place.

    Songshan Ciyou Temple is an ancient temple dedicated to veneration of the goddess Mazu. The temple was built in 1753, during the Ching Dynasty. It's said that a wandering monk and his followers built the temple, dedicating it to Mazu. The temple is quite ornate, and it is lit up at night, when the nearby Raohe Night Market is open.

    As parks go, this park is probably utilized the most by the locals as you can find lots of children’s outdoor equipment to play on, many statues or monuments and lots of practical recreational things. I thought it was interesting. The park, however, is the home of the Lin An Tai Historical House and Museum. The Lin An Tai House is a definite tourist destination so when you come to see it, hang out a bit and walk around the park.
