Taipei – The City

Taipei is the capital city of Taiwan which is located in the Pacific Ocean only 120 miles from Mainland China and 360 miles northeast of Hong Kong. Taiwan has a population of over 23 million people which consist of Han, Chinese, Taiwanese and nine different aboriginal groups. Mandarin is the primary language spoken in the city.
