Taipei, Taiwan (Outgoing Program)
Home to approximately 6 million residents, Taipei is the thriving economic, political, and cultural center of Taiwan. Get your cultural fix by visiting Chiang-Kai Shek Memorial Hall, the National Taiwan Museum, and Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, and then head out and sample the local fare at one of the many night markets or roadside food vendors. For lovers of the outdoors hike up to the top of Elephant Mountain for an unforgettable view of the city or travel further afield Yangmingshan National Park and climb one of the many peaks.
