Family Tour of Taiwan (5-Day Private Tour)

Day 1 - Taipei and Safari Theme ParkFly into Taipei and head to the Leofoo Safari Park.Optional stop is the old town of Daxi, where the streets are lined with gorgeous prewar Baroque-style merchants’ houses.Day 2 - Leefoo Theme Park and TaipeiAfter breakfast in the resort, you’ll have as much time as you like to enjoy the entire theme park. If you opt to leave before lunch there are various options for a meal en route to Taipei.We’ll transfer you to your hotel for an afternoon rest, then meet up for dinner. After that, any activities will be tailored to your interests and energy levels. If you like bustle and colour, to finish up the evening we can take you to a local night market, where tasty snack foods are sold by outdoors vendors.Day 3 - Taipei Zoo and Taipei 101After breakfast in your hotel, we’ll head off to the southern part of the capital for a look at Taipei Zoo. There we can see some of Taiwan’s best-known animals, including Formosan black bears and pangolins, as well as non-local species like a pair of pandas. From the zoo we can ride the Maokong Gondola, a cable car that carries tourists up to the tea-growing closest to central Taipei.Late afternoon is the best time to go up to the observatory at Taipei 101 for sunset views over the city and beyond. There’s no need to leave the building for dinner: The world’s second-tallest skyscraper has its own branch of Din Tai Fung, the rightfully world-famous dumplings restaurant, and several other eating options.Day 4 - Tamsui Northern CoastOff to the seaside! Today we’ll take a look at Taiwan’s rugged north coast via Tamsui. A fun thing to do while in Tamsui is take the ferry across the estuary to Bali, an even smaller town but a good place to see crabs and mudskippers.After Tamsui and Bali, we can enjoy seafood at nearby Fuji Fishing Harbour, splash in the water at the beach called Baishawan (‘white sand bay’) or continue northeast along the coast, stopping wherever you want to take in the view or stretch your legs. Visiting a family-friendly hot spring is another option, as both Jinshan on the north coast and Yangmingshan National Park are riddled with places where naturally-heated mineral water rises to the surface.Day 5 -  Wrap UpWhatever time your flight out, we’ll help you make the very most of your final day in Taiwan. If you have shopping needs, we’ll guide you to the right part of the city to fulfill them. If you think the kids need to burn off some energy before getting on the plane, we can bring everyone to a park, a short hiking trail or - if the weather isn’t so great - a mall.

1-Day Private Outdoor Tour of Taipei

Enjoy a full one-day private tour exploring the great outdoors surrounding Taipei City.Pickup from your hotel in Greater Taipei, or Taipei railway stations or airport. Includes lunch, mineral water and insurance.Itinerary: • If you feel you spend enough time in crowded urban environments, and the hills visible from every part of the capital are calling to you, we can drive you up to Yangmingshan National Park via Martyrs Shrine, where the hourly changing of the guard is a display of breathtaking precision.  • On Yangmingshan we can enjoy the view over coffee and cake at Grass Mountain Chateau. A former residence of Chiang Kai-shek, it was built in 1920; even after a complete renovation less than a decade ago it continues to look thoroughly Japanese. The national park is criss-crossed by hiking paths; we can recommend one that matches your stamina and enthusiasm. • Yangmingshan and nearby Beitou are riddled with hot springs: If you’d like to soak awhile, let us know in advance and we’ll arrange a stop at an outdoor spring. If the ocean beckons, we can instead drive through the national park to Jinshan and return to the capital via Fuji Fishing Harbour (for a lunch of ultra-fresh seafood), the beach called Baishawan (for a splash in the water) and the historic riverside town of Tamsui. One of the most visible and intriguing landmarks here is the castle-like Fort San Domingo. • Another outdoors option – and one that deserves an entire day – is the indigenous enclave of Wulai. Much loved by birdwatchers, hot-springs fans and hikers, Taipei residents are indeed lucky to have this gorgeous realm of forest and mountain on their doorstep.
