Thanks to the extensive transportation system, travelers coming to Taiwan for the first time can get to many places by the MRT. Attractions accessible via the MRT include National Palace Museum, where the most Chinese artistic works are collected; Dihua Street, where life in the old Taipei is best kept; restaurants selling the world-famous xiao long bao; various kinds of featured cafes in the alleys and 24-hour Eslite Bookstore; Ximending, a shopping district popular with young adults. Travelers can even walk on the trail of Elephant Mountain for a one-hour hike. Rushing to the peak before sunset, they can overlook Taipei 101, which used to be the highest skyscraper in the world. For many, the capital of Taiwan, which merges Eastern delicacies and Western culture, has become their first stop to know Asia.
