Taipei Business Hotels for the Corporate TravellerAmy Van De Casteele
If you're planning a business trip to Taipei in the near future, don't arrange your journey without checking out HotelTravel.com's helpful selection of Taipei business hotels ideal for corporate guests. In Zhongshan, The Westin Taipei Hotel provides luxury 5 star accommodation in a convenient central location, while nearby The Regent Taipei provides spacious well-appointed guest rooms within close proximity of the city's business and entertainment districts. Located in Xinyi, 45-minutes from Taoyuan International Airport, you will find Grand Hyatt Taipei Hotel, which boasts world-class business facilities and is near many of the hottest local attractions.
If you have some free time in between business meetings and conferences, it's well worth your while to venture out and explore the city. The Taiwanese capital is a vibrant metropolis, home to a variety of historic and cultural attractions. Among these are the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, featuring a statue of Chiang Kai-shek himself and a museum devoted to his life. The hall also boasts manicured grounds and is popular with locals who come here to practise martial arts.
Those with a keen interest in architecture will probably want to visit Taipei 101, the soaring 101-floor skyscraper in Xinyi district. Zoom up to the higher levels in the world's second fastest elevators and enjoy the views before heading into the adjoining mall and pausing for a refreshing latte and a browse through Page One Bookstore.
History buffs will love Taipei as it is home to a number of diverse and fascinating museums; among these are the Taipei Fine Arts Museum on Zhongshan North Road and the National Palace Museum in Shilin. The National Museum of History is also worth visiting as you can combine it with a wander around the picturesque Taipei Botanical Garden.
Want to enjoy a snapshot of old-fashioned Taipei? Head to Dihua Street in Dadaocheng and wander past the 19th century shop houses before paying a visit to Xiahai City God Temple, founded in 1859 to honour the deity who protected the local population.
If your business trip is proving stressful, a great way to relieve the tension is by taking a dip in one of the local hot springs. Make your way to Wulai, a 30-minute taxi journey from the city, and immerse yourself in the healing waters before journeying back into the city to enjoy a hearty meal in one of Taipei's many eateries.
