Taipei is a busy city with plenty of things to do, but as with every bustling metropolis, there is a need for a place where locals can relax and take a break from their hectic lives. And there’s no better way to de-stress than with a massage, and, here in Taipei, massage parlors are plentiful. But which are the best?

Hawaii Spa

Massage Parlour

A family-run massage parlor located in Zhongshan District, Hawaii Spa is known as one of the best places to get a foot massage in the city. Although the place itself is a little older and not in the luxurious category as some other parlors, it is nevertheless an incredibly quiet and relaxing location given that it is in the middle of a very busy area. The staff here are quick to help customers decide on a service and will even warn you if there’s a chance it may hurt even the slightest bit.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
