Taipei Day Itinerary 1 - Yehliu, Leefoo Theme Park, Taipei 101

When it comes to planning your itinerary for Taipei, it is best when you have a day-by-day plan that you can adopt depending on the weather. This article features the first day itinerary for summer Taipei - which I adore so much more than winter Taipei. It's much hotter, about 35°C, but it's all that heat that gives you plenty of excuses for all the lovely mango iced shavings, milk tea, fruit juice! Itineraries provided regard Taipei Main Station as the starting point; adjust according to your hotel's location. 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.
