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).

  • Patrick T — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    Preparations were excellent - we really appreciated the attention to detail. The VIP Visa handling in Vietnam & Cambodia was much appreciated also. Guides were outstanding - particularly Borin in Cambodia.

  • Levi P — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    Used Kensington Tours to book my honeymoon in the foreign speaking country of Thailand. It was great to not have to worry about transportation or accommodation. Our itinerary was amazing but the best part was probably our English speaking guides. We had three separate guides and each of them became like close friend to us. The travel was long but I wouldn't trade our experience in Thailand for anything.

  • Karen K — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    I went to private tour w Kensington to Japan for 3 weeks last month. It was incredible. My daughter was studying in Niigata so I wanted her to hook up with me periodically throughout my tour to see all the highlights of Japan. It worked out perfectly. I'd personally like to thank Adam Watkins who was incredible with detail, kindness and professionalism. The guide selection was a perfect fit. I cannot say enough about my and my daughter's experience with Kensington Tours. A trip of a lifetime.

  • Debra Y — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    All the accommodations were great. The guides were very personable and knowledgeable. As a woman traveling alone, I never felt unsafe.

  • Kathleen P — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Japan with Kensington Tours. Our private tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and charismatic. We cannot wait to make a return visit to Japan! Thank you again for helping us create an amazing honeymoon.

  • Ellen Weisstein — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    Poopsha in Thailand was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great company!!!!

  • Kelly Jennings — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    This was the first time I used a tour company and loved it. We REALLY REALLY appreciated Phusa in Chiang Mai, when she suggested the Silk factory tour and Pottery factory tour, that was great.

  • Sydni Smith — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    All travel guides were excellent!! Mutchalin from Chiang Mai is new to Kensington.She should be used by you again. Excellent
