Know that saying, "Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're going to get" ? Well, we like to say that Taipei Taxi Diary is like a box of chocolates — because you never know who you're going to meet! So pluck up your courage and get a true local experience of Taipei with a taxi driver as your own personal guide.
Want to really experience Taipei like a local? This unique Taipei city tour will take you through the main streets and back streets of Taipei, with a local taxi driver as your guide. Sit up beside the driver and learn about a typical day while also observing local Taiwanese people and culture. Chat with passengers and the driver, learn more about Taipei, and even make new friends! Locals are, after all, the best tour guides. Get advice on sites to see, places to eat, and experiences to have, and learn about Taipei, all from those who know best: Taipei’s own people!
Unlike a typical car-based tour, this Taipei city tour will take you right into the heart of the community. Local residents can still hail your taxi and ride along with you, enabling you to interact with them and see Taipei from different perspectives. You’ll see streets not mentioned in guidebooks and have a true city adventure, filled with characters as well as sites on a tour that’s never the same thing twice.
The driver will also stop at a spot that only locals know for a break, so you can try some street snacks before continuing on your Taxi diary.
