Taipei is Taiwan’s capital city and also the capital of the Republic of China. Home to two and a half million people, Taipei is one of the top tourist destinations in Asia. Full of museums, markets, parks, national monuments, and natural beauty spots, Taipei is also home to boutique hotels offering the best accommodation in Taipei. If, like me, you prefer staying at boutique hotels than typical chain hotels, don’t miss these top three Taipei boutique hotels. They’re absolutely gorgeous.
