As one of our favorite under-rated cities in Asia, Taipei has only recently started to get mainstream attention. (Case in point: The New York Times chose it as one of the 52 Places to Go in 2014). If you’re considering a trip, here are some popular highlights, including where to eat, where to shop, what to do, and where to stay. Plus we’ve included our favorite places where you’ll find fewer tourists and lots of locals.

EAT & SHOP

Popular Eats: Shilin Night Market is one of the most widely known – and therefore most tourist-packed – night market in the city. Since the relocation of most its food vendors into one building close to the main network of shops, it’s become even more of a tourist trap. To go where the locals go…

Under-the-Radar Eats: Raohe Night Market is more far-flung among the city’s night markets, but it’s arguably the best for food. Any of the typical dishes found here – stinky tofu, oyster omelettes, crispy chicken – make it worth the trek. If it’s browsing that interests you, try the less-crowded Tonghua Night Market (also known as Linjiang Night Market, because it’s located on Linjiang Street). There, enjoy Korean imports galore alongside cheap but delicious teppanyaki.
