Call me a geek, dork, nerd or whatever else. I love museums. There’s something extremely pleasing about a well-curated selection of items with a visual and educational twist. Taipei’s National Palace Museum (Shilin MRT station) is exactly that. Browse through several rooms filled with ancient Chinese relics and artifacts to learn about China and Taiwan at the same time. BEWARE, this is a very popular destination, especially in the early afternoon hours, particularly by Chinese tourists. If you want to avoid the crowd, go around 6 pm. You’ll have a choice of 3-4 different buses to get you there. It’s the last stop. Cost–TWD $250 to get in.
