Cheap things to do in Taipei

The National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is an imposing, gleaming-white monument to the long-serving former president, and one of Taiwan’s most iconic national symbols. It’s surrounded by a beautifully maintained park, where locals gather at sunrise to practice Tai Chi. Taipei Zoo is one of the city’s most popular family attractions, thanks in part to its incredibly low ticket prices. Here, you’ll find an amazing collection of well cared for animals, including cuddly koalas, mesmerizing clouded leopards, and adorable giant pandas. For an incredible free view of the city, take a short but bracing hike up Elephant Mountain. Set off in the late afternoon and then enjoy watching the spectacular sunset.

Cheap ways to get around Taipei

Getting around Taipei is generally quick, hassle-free, and, best of all, cheap. The Taipei Metro, or MRT, is the city’s state-of-the-art subway system. It’s the most convenient way to hop between major attractions, and you’ll find information in English at all stations. There’s also an extensive bus network, and you can save money on fares by buying a pre-paid EasyCard. Metered taxis are more expensive, but still significantly cheaper than in many other capital cities. If you’re feeling adventurous, bicycles are available to rent at most metro stations.
