There is no shortage of cool things to do in Taipei. In fact, there's quite a tall list, beginning with Taipei 101, which was the tallest building in the world until 2010. The Adventure Kayak Club offers sea, lake and river canoing for individuals and families regularly around the island. My Island is open 24 hours and the admission price includes a swim in the heated pool, some time in the sauna rooms or a massage by the pumps in the acupressure room. Fu Lung, a short train trip north of Taipei, has one of the most popular beaches in northeastern Taiwan. Hell Valley is famous for its "special" sulfur scent. In the early 20th century, sulfur mining was the key to Peitou's booming economy. Nowadays, it's a nature reserve where you can see natural hotsprings. Temple Street Night Market is famed for its nightly eating frenzy. Packed full of food stalls, the market has many popular items, including tempura, peanut butter ice sorbet and tang yuan - chewy rice balls filled with sweet sesame seed paste floating in sweet soup. You can't top Taipei 101 but you can fill your stay in Taipei with a long list of cool things to do.
