Mainstream attractions in Taipei to See and Capture

Instagrammable Place #1: Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport T1

Taipei Airport

One of the places that we commonly overlook to take photos in our travels is the airports. Though we don’t always realize it, airports are sometimes our first actual tourist destination abroad. They give us the first impression of the country we are visiting, and yes, often they are worth taking a photo.

If you are coming to Taiwan and landing at Terminal 1 of Taoyuan International Airport in Taiwan, you are definitely lucky! Before you leave the plane, be sure that you have your lenses prepared. You’ll see one epic sight after you unload from the plane.

Instagrammable Place #2: Taipei 101

Taipei 101

Google Maps: No. 7, Section 5, Xinyi Rd, Xinyi District

Taipei 101, Currently the 5th tallest skyscraper, blesses anyone who sees the skyline of the Taiwanese capital with awe and amusement. It is the first structure in the world to overpass the 500-meter height mark, standing at 508 meters or 1670 feet.

What’s most notable about Taipei 101 is its architecture which is a pure manifestation of Chinese culture. Taipei 101 is inspired by the structure of the Chinese pagoda and the shape of bamboo flowers. And if you will notice, the building has 8 delineated sections – a number which means success in their culture.

If you want to get close-up details of the building, I suggest that you proceed near its base. Check the map address link below. However, if you desire to create EPIC photos of Taipei 101, move away a bit from Taipei 101 until you reach Agora Garden. There, you can create fantastic shots of Taipei 101 in the middle of two twisted buildings.

Instagrammable Place #3: Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall

Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Taipei

Google MapsNo. 21, Zhongshan South Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100

Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall is located at the massive Freedom Square that spans more than 240,000 square meters in Zhongzheng district. The structure is dedicated to Chiang Kai-shek, the first president of Taiwan.

If you do not know how old Chiang Kai-shek before he passed away, I suggest you count the number of steps from one of the stairs leading to the main hall. They will reveal how many years Chiang has lived. Don’t search google yet until you visited the memorial hall.

I believe that you will take photos both from outside and inside of the memorial hall. In case you’ll be taking pictures of the inscriptions written behind Chiang’s statue, here’s what they mean: “Ethics,” “Democracy,” and “Science.” Then on the sides, the inscription tells “The purpose of life is to improve the general life of humanity” and “The meaning of life is to create and sustain subsequent lives in the universe.”

Sometimes it’s good that we know what we are taking photos of so we may appreciate the place much more and understand what they mean when we share them with our friends.

The Memorial Hall Stands beautifully at night too. The white painted body of the structure is lit with yellow light, and the edges of the walls surrounding the building are outlined with white light. They make the sight remarkable.

Instagrammable Place #4: Liberty Square Arch

Freedom Square, Taipei

Google Maps: No. 21, Zhongshan South Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100

Liberty Square Arch is the large five arc-gate entrance to Freedom Square. The gate is a traditional Chinese architectural gateway structure that locals call Paifang or Pailou. Like Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall, Liberty Square Arch is painted Blue and White. However, at night warm light changes its appearance, making it more appealing and picture-worthy. It is best to photograph Liberty Square Arch after a rain when the ground has still water. The still water creates a beautiful mirror effect on shots of the arch.

Scenic Spots to Capture in Taipei

Instagramable Scenic Spot #5: Elephant Mountain

Elephant Mountain, Taiwan

Google Maps: 110, Taiwan, Taipei City, Xinyi District

Elephant mountain is a 10-minute walk from MRT Xiangsha Station and a 20-minute hike where you can see a scenic view of Taipei. It is 183 meters high and has a trail of 1.5 kilometers long. It is locally known as the Xiangshan mountain.

Within the tracks of the Elephant mountain, you will find three viewing decks where you can photograph the city. The trail might be tiring because of a continuous incline, but the sight after reaching each viewing station is priceless. Along the path, you’ll find boulders where you can stand and take photographs too. It is the prevalent shot for most Instagrammers, though.

The last viewing deck of the elephant mountain has the best view of the city, of course, as you can get more angles with your camera from that height. However, if you visit Elephant mountain, I suggest that you bring 2 cameras (1 phone and one mirrorless/DSLR). So that you can take photos and record timelapse videos at the same time. The best time to go here is during sunset, so you can film how Taipei lights up the horizon as the day turns into night.

Instagramable Scenic Spot #6: Maokong Gondola

Gondola, Maokong, Taipei

Google Maps: 116, Taiwan, 台北市文山區新光路二段30之2號 

Another place where you can have an overlooking view of Taipei is through a Gondola going to Maokong. However, you cannot directly see Taipei 101. Maokong Gondola is a 4.3-kilometer ropeway connecting Taipei Zoo and Maokong. A ride on it gives you a scenic view of the cityscape, slowly turning to the lush green and thick forest of central Taiwan.

This is another great spot where you can photograph the Taipei cityscape. If you could negotiate with the crews on the stations, better. Ask if you can ride a gondola with clear windows so you can take clear shots from the top. It’s an excellent opportunity for creating time-lapse as well, in case you are making travel vlogs.

One that you should not miss during your gondola ride is the overlooking view of Chih Nan Temple. Fantastic, right!? It will be your opportunity to get a similar shot to the one in the photo above. Lastly, skip the gondola if it is raining, of course.

Instagramable Scenic Spot #7: Thermal Valley

Beitou, Taipei

Google Maps: 112, Taiwan, Taipei City, Beitou District

You can find the picturesque steaming emerald sulfur hot springs in Taipei in Beitou District at the foothills of Yangmingshan National Park, located north of the city center. I know that the steam coming up from the lake makes such a beautiful effect that any photographers or Instagrammers could not resist capturing. But when you come here, don’t just take photos, dip yourself in hot springs! There are a lot of spas around where you can bathe in steaming water.

Bathing in hot springs is such a soothing and relaxing activity that you must not miss, especially during winter. However, I would not suggest that you go here during warm days. During summer, the valley might be filled with humid hot haze or air, which are not be safe for electronics. Careful with your camera, though! Besides, you would not want to soak your shirt from sweat just to take photos, right?

If you come to Beitou, you can go stright to Yehliu Geopark. It is near the Thermal Valley, also north of Taipei.

Taiwanese Streets to Photograph in Taipei

Instagrammable Street #1: Ximending

Ximending, Taipei

Google Maps: Wanhua District, Taipei

Ximending is a neighborhood and shopping district in the Wanhua District of Taipei, Taiwan, and was our last destination before we leave Taipei. To be honest, this was the place where I enjoyed Taipei the most. I had fun with all the performances, gimmicks, food, and shops I saw from Ximending.

Here you will find the largest pedestrian area in the whole of Taiwan. That is why many people call this “Shibuya of Taipei.” Also, the fact that it is the center of Taiwan’s fashion and subculture, Japanese influence has been in Ximenting. You can clearly observe them as you explore the area.

This place is good to photograph because of the glimmering colorful lights, picture-worthy shops, and Instagrammable meals and snacks on every Ximending’s street. It is also an excellent spot to discover and capture the vibrant life in Taipei, its liveliness, and its modernity. Indeed, if you want to see the best of Ximending, visit the place during the evening. It is truly fantastic!

Instagrammable Street #2: Dihua Street

Dihua St, Datong District, Taipei

Google Maps: Section 1, Dihua St, Datong District, Taipei City, Taiwan 103

In Dihua street, you will find the preserved and conserved buildings with architecture dating back to the 17th century, created under the rule of Dutch Formosa. It is one of the oldest streets in Taipei that you’ll enjoy strolling if you love seeing and capturing dated structures built in bricks. At the same time, Dihua Street lets you see, photograph, and buy different Chinese goods.

Instagrammable Street #3: Bopiliao Street

Bopiliao Old Street

Google Maps: Lane 173, Kangding Road, Wanhua District, Taipei City, Taiwan 108

Bopiliao Street is another spot in Taipei where you can photograph old buildings, narrow paths, and cobblestone streets. This place will surely remind you of some European cities. Going here will be a stroll in the past.

To make your visit to Bopiliao Street more interesting, here are some facts which you can ponder while you explore and shoot photos. Starting with 

(1) Bopiliao street was once a prosperous commercial area. Would it be fantastic if you take a picture that tells the busy and thriving community that once flourished here? 

(2) Bopliao Street has structures that have architectural styles originating from many foreign influences. That includes Southern Fujianese culture, Japanese, Chinese, and Modern West. I think some of them are worth finding and capturing, especially if you are an enthusiast.

There are also art galleries and wall arts you can photograph here. Together with the mellow light in the narrow streets during the afternoon or cloudy day, you can make an epic, moody selfie Instagram photo that could impress your audience.

Taipei Picture Worthy Public Structures

Instagram Worthy Structure #1: Grand Hotel Taipei

Grand Hotel Taipei

Google Maps: No. 1號, Section 4, Zhongshan North Road, Zhongshan 

One of the most unique structures that you can see in Taiwan is the Grand Hotel Taipei. It is a 14-story building standing with towering red pillars, with magnificent multicolored Tou-Kung on top.

Wondering what Tou-Kung is? They are a series of bracket sets placed on pillar tops. They are used to internally and externally support the beams and the eaves of the building. It serves as a buffer to the force that might impact the building structure (source: http://papers.cumincad.org/)

Whenever I look at the Grand Hotel Taipei, I feel like looking on a vertically elongated Supreme Hall of Harmony in the Forbidden City in China. The magnificence of Grand Hotel Taipei will surely drag your lenses towards the building when you finally arrive at its premises.

It is best to photograph the Grand Hotel during a clear sky on a sunset or sunrise. The hard light at striking the building at a good angle will create contrasting shadows with the elements of the structure. It shall reveal crisper architectural details of the hotel.

Instagram Worthy Structure #2: Presidential Palace

Presidential Palace, Taipei

Google Maps: No. 122號, Section 1, Chongqing South Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100

Presidential Palace is a famous attraction in Taipei near Freedom Square. It is a Baroque-style structure built by the Japanese back in the days of its occupation of Taiwan.

That is why if you will notice, it does not follow Chinese Fengshui about a T junction. Instead, it matches the Japanese belief that important structures must face the east (where the sun rises) at the head of long avenues. For Chinese people, the T junction brings bad luck due to the turbulent flow of universal chi crashing into the structure.

When it was constructed, Presidential Palace stands at 60 meters, the tallest among the buildings in Taipei. Though today, it is already dwarfed by Taipei 101, it still persists to be one of the most visited places in Taipei. Presidential Palace exterior’s architecture and inside experience give visitors a unique encounter in Taipei. You can check the Open House Schedule from the palace’s website. 

Instagram Worthy Structure #3: Taipei National Theater and Concert Hall

Taipei National Theater and Concert Hall

Google Maps: No. 21-1號, Zhongshan South Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100

When you visit Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall in Freedom Square, don’t miss checking Taipei National Theater and Concert hall. They are twin buildings at the left and right side of Chiang Kai Shek Memorial, where local and international artists perform cultural and modern shows.

These structures are designed in a traditional Chinese-style palace with elegant pillars, Tou-Kung, and roofs. They might look small in pictures, but actually, they are humongous in person. If you find their exterior already a picture-worthy subject, wait until you see the inside. Check their tour schedule here. 

Within Freedom Square, you can find ponds that you can use to capture the Theater and Concert hall with a fantastic mirror effect on the water. The ponds also have a white bridge that’s totally Instagrammable. Wait until the night comes, and you’ll see them glow with a light that’s hidden underneath their details.

Instagram Worthy Structure #4: Gate of Old Taipei City

Gate of Old Taipei City

Google Maps: 10048, Taiwan, Taipei City, Zhongzheng District, Zhongshan South Road, 信義路一段10048

Like most of the cities in the world, Taipei was once enclosed in walls, and people could only enter the city through the gates. The wall was established in 1884, during the Qing dynasty, but was unmade when the Japanese invaded the Taiwanese island. The removal of the wall was done to expand the city further outside.

The walls of Taipei extend nearly five kilometers. And it only allows access to the city from its five gates: East Gate, West Gate, South Gate, North Gate, and the Auxiliary South Gate. These gates were demolished but were reconstructed again after. Out of the five gates, the east and the north gates stand out prevalently when it comes to the design.

Since the east gate is situated in the middle of a roundabout, you can set your cameras into the long-shutter mode. In that way, you can to creatively remove the cars or capture a photo of the structure with incredible light effect at night. You can shoot a picture of The East Gate with Taipei 101 in the background when you are along the Ketagalan Boulevard. It is a phenomenal shot that only a few can make.

Instagram Worthy Structure #5: Beimen Castle

Beimen Castle

Google Maps: Section 1, Zhongxiao West Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100

The north gate of Taipei is actually a castle gate and the main gate of Taipei prefecture the Qing dynasty. Please check the Gate of Old Taipei City (The East Gate) section to know its history. The Beimen Castle or the North Gate may seem plain in some photos, don’t underestimate its actual look in person. 

Actually, there is one festival in Taipei where you can watch and videotape Beimen Castle with illuminations turning the whole structure into a wonderfully fantastic spectacle. Yes, it is during the Lantern Festival in Taipei. It happens every 15th day of the 1st month of the lunisolar year.

Instagram Worthy Structure #6: Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall

Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall

Google Maps: No. 505號, Section 4, Ren’ai Road, Xinyi District, Taipei City, Taiwan 110

Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall is a 7-acre hall dedicated to the Republic of China’s National Father, Sun Yat-Sen. The structure holds the story of Sun and how he led a revolution back in the days. Most tourists visit Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall because they want to witness the formal changing of guards in the hall. However, the whole structure does not only contain stuff related to Sun Yat-Sen. It is a multi-purpose hall serving as an exhibition center, lecture halls, library, and audiovisual center.

Actually, the location of Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall has the perfect proximity away from Taipei 101. It is a good spot where you can photograph Taipei 101 with almost no obstruction. With that, you can put into a single frame the hall and Taipei 101 in one shot.

If you are just finding a way to capture just the Sun Yat-Set Memorial Hall, I suggest that you set your camera at the side of the dancing water fountain far from the hall. In that spot, you can create a fantastic shot of the hall with either a mirror effect (when the fountain is turned off).

Instagram Worthy Structure #7: Fort San Domingo

Fort San Domingo

Google Maps: 251, Taiwan, New Taipei City, Tamsui District, 中正路28巷1號

You will find the historic Fort San Domingo on the northern portion of Taipei, in the Tamsui district. The fort’s name varied throughout the ages because of the colonial powers who had owned the structure.

The Spaniards were the ones to build the fort, which was a wooden structure at that time. They called it Fort San Domingo. However, they were discharged by the Dutch, who came years after. The dutch renamed the fort Hongmao Castle-which means Fort of the Red Heads, to indicate the characteristics of the dutch occupants. And in 1867, the British came, and they renovated the whole place. The result of the British’s renovation gives us now looks of the fort that we could see in Hongmao Castle in person now.

At present times, Hongmao Castle attracts many travelers because of the European vibe that the fort has. Travelers enjoy both taking photos of the Hongmao Castle and from the Hongmao Castle. The castle is facing the Tamsui river that gives visitors a scenic view, especially during sunsets.

Parks and Shrines to Visit and Capture in Taipei

Instagrammable Park #1: Zhongshan Park

Zhongshan Park

National Revolutionary Martyrs’ Shrine

There is a shrine in Taipei that resembles the Forbidden City’s Hall of Supreme Harmony’s Architecture in China. They call this shrine the National Revolutionary Martyr Shrine. The shrine is dedicated to approximately 390,000 war dead of the Republic of China during the twisting portions of Chinese and Taiwanese history. That includes the First and Second Taiwan Strait Crises, Chinese Civil War, Second Sino-Japanese War, Northern Expedition, and Xinhai Revolution.

Like the structures in Freedom Square, the National Revolutionary Martyr Shrine possess exquisite Chinese architecture. The read pillars, ultra-detailed beams, and mesmerizing Tou Kungs of the shrine are such a good appeal that you would not help yourself not to photograph them when you see them.

Taipei’s Picture Perfect Temples

Picture-Worthy Temple #1: Longshan Temple

Longshan Temple Taipei

Google Maps: No. 211, Guangzhou Street, Wanhua District, Taipei City, Taiwan 10853

Chinese temples never looked dull and plain as they are always built with utmost creativity, manifesting the passion of Chinese people for spirituality. Longshan Temple is one of the temples in Taipei where you can observe this character. It was built in the 18th century to honor the Taoist and Buddhist Deities.

In Longshan temple, you can photograph the character I am referring to by the design, architecture, and decorations inside and outside the temple’s premises.

I’m sure, at the time you see the main hall, you’ll first notice the majestic curved roof with carved dragons on top. You must not miss photographing the dragons on the pond and the dragons that constrict the temple pillars.

The temple is just so detailed that checking a part of the temple to check and photograph could take you more hours than expected. You will also be amazed by the golden decorations at the temple’s beam and the paintings of the gods at the temple’s walls.

Picture-Worthy Temple #2: Chih Nan Temple

Chih Nan Temple

Google Maps: No. 115, Wanshou Road, Wenshan District, Taipei City, Taiwan 116

If you are going to Maokong through the ropeway, do not forget to first drop by to Chih Nan Temple. Maokong Gondola stops at a station where you can walk your way to this fantastic temple. Chih Nan Temple is a large mountainside Taoist temple built during the 1800s. It contains wondrous religious artifacts and impressive statues that will definitely make you draw your camera lenses towards them.

Chih Nan Temple has an imposing stairway that gives you an epic view of the Taipei skyline when you reach the final steps to the top. It is just one perfect view that your cameras should not miss shooting. As you start to explore the area, you will see a water-spewing dragon guarding a pagoda. They will be the start of your marvelous exploration of the temple.

If you come inside the temple, two of the things which will fascinate you are the matrix of red Chinese lanterns and the temple paintings. You must find the hallway where there are painted images of Chinese tradition and symbols. It is one good spot in Chih Nan Temple to shoot Instagrammable pictures.

Picture-Worthy Temple #3: Tianyuan Temple

Tianyuan Temple

Google Maps: No. 36, Section 3, Beixin Road, Tamsui District, New Taipei City, Taiwan 251

Taipei has many temples. You can check Chih Nan Temple from the south, Longshan Temple in the city center, and Tianyuan temple in the north. Among the three, I think Tianyuan Temple stands out as the most Instagrammable when it comes to the actual view of the temple from afar.

Chih Nan Temple is a Taoist temple standing with a glorious white, circular, pagoda-like structure. It is surrounded by cherry blossoms that give the temple a super lovely view, particularly during spring. Then, the mountain backdrop of the Chih Nan Temple makes the place feel really Asian. It is just one true gem in northern Taipei. You will be mesmerized by the Tou-Kungs following the circular shape of the temple, especially at night when lights are powered-up, and they glow beautifully.

It is definitely the place which you must not forget your cameras. The entrance to the Chih Nan Temple is a magnificent gate decorated with dragons and warriors on top. It’s going to be impressive even before you enter the compound.

Instagrammable Bridges in Taipei

Instagrammable Bridge #1: New Taipei Bridge

New Taipei Bridge

Google Maps: 241, Taiwan, New Taipei City, Sanchong District, 二重疏洪道(View Point)

To kick off the list for Instagrammable bridges, here is the impressive New Taipei Bridge that spans over the Tamsui River. It is a cable-stayed bridge with a height equivalent to a 40-story (135.75 meters) highrise building, thus belongs to one of the tallest bridges in Taiwan. It is definitely a social media shareable photo of a landmark if you visit Taipei. You can have a good shot of it from the Erchong Floodway Sports Park in New Taipei City.

Instagrammable Bridge #2: Baishihu Suspension Bridge

Baishihu Suspension Bridge

Google Maps: Bishan Road, Neihu District, Taipei City, Taiwan 114

One of the most underrated places in Taipei is Bishan Temple, Zhongyongshan Trail, and Baishihu Suspension Bridge in Neihu District. It is a place in Taipei where you can have an overlooking view of the city in a whole different set-up (aside from the famous Elephant Mountain). Here, you can see Taipei 101, unlike in Maokong Gondola and Tianyuan Temple.

However, it is the Baishishu Suspension Bridge that stands most unique from this place. It is not only a simple bridge, but it actually symbolizes a dragon across the valley. It is also a narrow, purple-colored bridge that stretches for more than a hundred meters. Yes, it is purple! Most girls will love to shoot Instagram photos here.

Instagrammable Bridge #3: Guandu Bridge

Guandu Bridge

Google Maps: 249, Taiwan, New Taipei City, Bali District, Unnamed Road (View Point)

If you will ever be visiting northern Taipei, one of the things you should see even for a short time is Guandu Bridge. It is an iconic arched bridge over the Tamsui River. Locals and some visitors usually come to the area near the Guandu Bridge to cycle and relax. But you might want to photograph the Guandu Bridge, especially at night. You will love the bridge’s light reflected by the river.

Instagrammable Bridge #4: Taipei Sunshine Bridge

Taipei Sunshine Bridge

Google Maps: Anye Street, Xindian District, New Taipei City, Taiwan 231 (View Point)

One place that you should visit is the Taipei Sunshine Bridge when you are exploring New Taipei City. Why visit? Because it’s Taipei city’s first river-crossing scenic bridge with a stylish look, oriented to serve pedestrians and cyclists, and recognized with the 13th National Golden Award for Architecture.

It is also picture-worthy because it is actually an artwork. Its light and design are really made to decorate Xiandian Creek. Wait until you see the moving light sculpture show at night. I’m sure you’ll have fun not only shooting the bridge but also watching the lights.

Instagrammable Bridge #5: Crescent Bridge

Crescent Bridge, Taipei

Google Maps: Section 5, Huanhe West Road, Banqiao District, New Taipei City, Taiwan 220 (View Point)

For me, Crescent Bridge is the most beautiful bridge that you can find in Taipei. It is Instagrammable from afar and even when you are walking through it. Crescent bridge is also the longest double-spanning steel arch bridge in Taiwan, so it is compelling to photograph it. It has a transparent bridge flooring too (Sky Walkway) which is totally selfie convincing, especially when you walk through it.

However, the real perfection of the bridge comes when the day turns into night. It is when the Crescent Bridge light up, highlighting the elegant curve of the bridge’s arches. As the river reflects the light from the bridge, the overall scenery becomes crazy wonderful! It is the sight that you must not miss seeing and a view that your camera must not miss shooting.

Instagrammable Bridge #6: Dazhi Bridge

Dazhi Bridge

Google Maps: 10491, Taiwan, Taipei City, Zhongshan District (View Point)

Lastly, the bonus spot, you have Dazhi Bridge! It is a bridge that spans 172 meters across the Keelung River. Viewing Dazhi bridge might be quick so try going here whenever there is a dragon boat competition in Dajia Riverside Park. It usually occurs every May or June of each year. Try getting an epic shot of the tournament with the Dazhi Bridge in the background.

Alright! Those are all the 30 best photo spots you can go to in Taipei. If you have recommendations, don’t forget to comment down below so future readers would also know.
