Taiwan and Taipei
Taipei is the most important cultural, political and economic center in Taiwan, with a population of more than 3 million. While the city has been modernized in the past half century, it preserves the rich cultural traditions of Chinese history. The National Palace Museum located in a suburb of Taipei is world famous for its priceless collection of artistic treasures, which represent over 3,000 years of Chinese history. Even a brief stay in Taipei is enough to take in many of its attractions.
