Day 2: Taipei

Enjoy a half day private tour with an English speaking guide. While the Taipei area has been settled for millennia by the indigenous Ketagalan people, its history as an urban centre only dates back to the early 1700's. Despite only a few hundred years of history Taipei is now a modern city with a tumultuous history, diverse population and impressive collage of modern grandeur and age old traditions. Begin with a visit to the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, an impressive monument to the one-time leader of China and founder of modern Taiwan. The majestic hall towers over 25 hectares of landscaped gardens, pavilions, and ponds. Next stop is the nearby Martyr's Shrine, an excellent example of classical Ming dynasty architecture and an excellent source of insight into the history of Taiwan that still shapes its relationship with the Mainland. Next stop by the Taipei National Palace Museum which houses the imperial safeguarded from the chaos of the civil war and with over 620,000 items it is the world's largest collection of Chinese art treasure - too large to be displayed all at once. Final stop is the handicraft center - an excellent source to see (and if interested purchase) traditional goods.

Enjoy a four hour private evening tour with an English speaking Guide. Modern Taipei is home to many temples, markets and exciting dining opportunities. This private tour combines these urban highlights with a visit to Lungshan (Dragon Mountain) Temple, Taipei's oldest and most famous as well as one of Taiwan's finest examples of temple architecture. With a delicious and exciting dinner at IS Tea House there is also opportunity to visit the lively Hwahsi Street Night Market and view Taipei's skyline atop the Taipei 101 Observatory (entrance ticket is included).

  • Jennifer C. — August 10, 2018 — Asia

    Maria, our travel agent, was fantastic! She was extremely flexible to multiple requests. And, she produced an unforgettable vacation. Tajma, our guide in Thailand, was professional, knowledge, and a truly warm and wonderful person. She shared her country with us and answered countless questions. She went above and beyond what was required to make our trip special.

  • Emily G. — July 04, 2018 — Asia

    This trip was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The planning was incredibly simple and the final product was even better than I could have ever imagined. Our local guides seemed to be hand-picked just for us and they really went above and beyond to help make our trip not only unforgettable, but also very easy. Thank you for helping to create such a memorable experience. I would absolutely recommend Kensington to anyone looking to plan a trip.

  • Karli H. — August 04, 2018 — Asia

    We had an absolutely amazing trip - every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations. We felt well taken care of, but at the same time our guides gave us space to enjoy the trip on our own at times. We are so happy that we booked through Kensington Tours, as all of the organization and planning was done for us - thanks for a great experience!

  • Janet T. — June 23, 2018 — Asia

    Our multi-generational family of 8 recently returned from an amazing escorted, personalized 12-day tour of Japan. The quality was everything we expected and hoped for. Our tour planner, Anne-Laure, was fantastic and so was our Japanese guide, Mayumi. Both were attentive to our interests, professional, knowledgeable and personable. Transportation was high quality and on-time. The diversity and pace of the activities made our trip interesting and memorable. Our guide was flexible and allowed us to fine-tune our itinerary to meet our individual preferences. We felt safe and well-cared for. Japan is a pristine and polite country with a lot of history and we enjoyed it very much.

  • Richard F. — May 15, 2018 — Asia

    I am at a loss in describing how perfect our trip was! Every single detail was taken care of and the activities were amazing!

  • Derrick D. — May 22, 2018 — Asia

    Everything about this trip was AMAZING! From start to finish, Jennifer and her team responded promptly, and suggestions that catered to my ideal Bali trip.

  • Frances B. — April 11, 2018 — Asia

    Our trip to Japan was awesome! We learned so much about the customs, food and spiritual life. We never had any concerns about where we needed to be or when, even with quite a few transfers.

  • Steven C. — February 10, 2018 — Asia

    I have traveled all over the world with various travel companies. Kensington is ranked right at the top! Honestly could not have expected more than they provided.

  • Kimberley E. — February 13, 2018 — Asia

    Extraordinary Experience! From beginning to end, we were well taken care of. Thank you so very much. A very memorable trip indeed!

  • Andrew C. — January 06, 2018 — Asia

    We had a fantastic time on our Honeymoon! The level of service that Kensington provided from the time we started planning the trip to the plane ride home was second to none. I would not book a trip using any other agency!
