Taipei - Excursions and day trips

Whether you are traveling to Taiwan for business or pleasure, there are a few great day trips that are worth considering. This guide will tell you about a few of the best options available to you. Whether you want to spend a day exploring the natural beauty of Taiwan or learn more about its history, these tours will give you the chance to do so.

If you're looking for a day trip from Taipei, you might want to consider going to Yehliu, an area that's protected from development and offers amazing rock formations. The area also features mushroom-shaped rocks and hoodoo stones. There's even a scenic hike through the park that's perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors.

If you're interested in history, you can go on a coach tour that includes a trip to the Hualien Stone Sculpture Park. You'll also see the Eternal Spring Shrine, which honors the men and women of the armed forces who have served in Taiwan. You'll also have the opportunity to try traditional Taiwanese food during the coach tour.


If you're a fan of delicious foods, you'll love Jiufen, a decommissioned mining town that is home to some of the best street food in Taiwan. You'll also be able to see old-fashioned teahouses and coastal views. There's also a unique concept in Taipei called Addiction Aquatic Development, which combines a seafood barbecue restaurant, oyster bar and gourmet food supermarket.

If you're looking for sweeping views of Taipei, you can take the Taipei 101 bus. It's one of the most popular sightseeing trips in the city. You can also check out the famous Night Market, where you'll find a wide variety of foods, including Taiwanese street food. It's the hippest place to visit in Taiwan right now.

If you're a nature lover, you might want to go on a day trip to Shifen, which is known as the "Little Niagara of Taiwan." Shifen is home to the beautiful Pipa-Dong Falls, which is home to the Formosan Blue Magpie. You'll also have the opportunity to explore a few hidden waterfalls during this trip.


If you're a fanatic for history, you can visit Fort San Domingo, which is a historical landmark in Taipei. This former Dutch fort is located on the Tamsui River, and you'll have the chance to take a ferry ride across the water. The ferry ride will cost you 45 Taiwanese (or $1.50 USD) and you'll have the opportunity to view the historic building. You'll also have the opportunity to walk along Chi-Hsing Beach, which is the first beach in Taiwan.

If you're a foodie, you can try the famous Addiction Aquatic Development, which is a unique combination of a sushi bar, oyster bar and gourmet food supermarket. You can also go on a boat cruise to see the Gold Waterfall, which is one of the best natural wonders in Taiwan. During the boat cruise, you'll also have the chance to enjoy lunch onboard.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
