What’s the best location to stay in Taipei?

I always choose where to stay in Taipei in the Taipei 101 area. This is when I have an extra budget for a short, luxurious vacation. I also choose hotels in Taipei in this area that already have restaurants so I won’t need to go out!

On some of my visits to Taipei, I stay in hostels near Taipei Main Station. This is also where my friends live and I really love this area! Everything you need is here!

I also tried staying in the Ximending neighborhood. My Taiwanese artist friends prefer this area because it is young. It’s sort of the hipster area of Taipei.

Trisha is one of those people who left their comfortable life to travel the world and learn about life. Her style is to stay in one place she likes for 3 months (or more) to know what it feels like to eat, cook, speak, and sleep in another culture that isn’t hers. She'd like to believe she's not traditionally traveling but she just chooses to be somewhere else all the time. In no particular order, her favorite cities in the world are Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Mexico City, and Tel Aviv.
