Though Taipei offers a lot of entertainment, shopping options and attractions, sometimes visitors need a break from the busy city center. For some peace and quiet, as well as outstanding panoramic views of Maokong Mountain, head over to Big Tea Pot Tea House. Nestled against the mountainside, this popular tea house offers Taiwanese-style dishes, as well as a variety of hot teas. Visitors can reach the tea house by either hiking up the mountain trail or by taking a gondola lift to the top.
