Four Lovely Boutique Hotels in Taipei

The capital city of Taiwan sits on the northern tip of the island nation and is the political, cultural and financial center of the country. The city proper is home to 2.6 million people and is connected to the rest of the island by an intricate network of high speed rail, trains, highways, bus routes and airports. Founded in the early 18th century, Taipei is a unique hodgepodge of Chinese, Japanese and aboriginal influence, giving the city a vibrant and dynamic cultural mix of architecture, food, and mannerisms. From checking out the observatory deck on the 91st floor of Taipei 101, to rubbing shoulders with throngs of people at one of the many night markets, travelers to this fantastic Asian city will be blown away by all there is to see and do. Of course, every weary traveler needs a place to rest, so here are four lovely boutique hotels that everyone should stay at, at least once in their lives.
