Taipei Day Itinerary 4 - Museums of Taipei

19:56


One man's meat is another's poison. Museums, with the very same exhibitions, could excite or bore. In any case, National Palace Museum should be the place to visit because even the most uninterested visitor will be blown away by the beauty of their collection. Photography is disallowed in most parts of the museum. If museum-hopping is the thing for you, read on! Before you launch headlong into the exciting planning of activities, remember to equip yourself with the 9 things you need to know when touching down in Taipei.
