Taipei is very kid-friendly, locals are genuinely helpful and the majority of venues are equipped with baby-changing facilities, high chairs and the like. Taiwanese people are lovely and helpful, do bear in mind not much English is spoken. Ensure to have addresses in mandarin printed out or on your smartphone. A basic translation app will also help.
Taiwan has a tropical climate and it is best to visit during shoulder seasons. You may want to avoid typhoon season, which is September.
Taipei is a unique mix of old-school traditions, high-design shops and eateries and truly lovely people. The city is atmospheric and slower-paced than the megacities of China, so enjoy this Taipei itinerary with kids. The Da’an district in particular offers a unique atmosphere and many fun things to do in Taipei. Explore the local creative scene of the city at Huashan 1914 Creative Park. It’s a lovely counterpoint to the usual traditional temples, gardens and night markets. Our visit coincided with the Art Taipei Biennial for a healthy dose of contemporary art from all over the region.
