    What You'll Do

    On this experience, join a like-minded Local Host and explore Taipei like a local; visiting the areas you most want to see on an experience personalised to you. If it's your first time in Taipei, experience the most famous sights, discovering hidden gems along the way. If you want an alternative experience, let your Local Host introduce you to some more off-the-beaten-path local neighbourhoods and spots. Wherever you choose to visit, you'll see the city through the eyes of the local.

    Immerse yourself in the local culture, discovering places that match your interests; from Hong Kong Island to the numerous street food markets. As well as visiting the places you most want to see, stop by local spots and places of interest along the way to get an authentic insight into local life in Taipei. 

    Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of the city that you will love and revealing other hidden gems that they know you’ll love. 

    What To Expect
    * Spend half a day with a local who will create an experience that's fully customised to your interests and what you'd most like to see 
    * See Taipei’s iconic attractions or off the beaten path spots 
    * Discover the highlights of the area or neighbourhood that you explore
