Catch a bullet train to the coast to find Taiwan’s oldest metropolis, Tainan City, known for its street food, Taijiang National Park’s mangrove forests, night markets, temples and now – thanks to the local Hanlin Tea Room – bubble tea. Local delicacies also include oyster omelettes, beef noodle soup and zongzi. There are plenty of places that you can use as a base from which to do your exploring – from five-star hotels to boutique stays that even include their own bookstores – all bookable on Culture Trip.

Silks Place Tainan, for tech-forward hospitality

Like the city itself, Silks Place Tainan is a blend of old and new – from the timeless calligraphy brush-inspired lamps in the 255 rooms to the robot that does the room service deliveries. While it’s convenient for business, it’s also great for leisure. Enjoy the outdoor infinity pool, the artisanal tea classes and pottery workshops or take one of its city tours – while the youngsters visit the Kids’ Club that comes with PS4 consoles, a foosball table and miniature ride-on cars.
