We found the Taipei metro map with photos helpful, and used the map with the metro "MRT" ride described in the back of the book, which highlights what there is to do along the Taipei metro. The Chinese translations under the names and addresses of restaurants and attractions around the island came in especially handy, and the "Taiwan From A To Z" section provided good information about the rest of Taiwan and its outlying islands. We truly enjoyed the restaurant guide! I can't recall a time when we've eaten so much. The restaurant guide is up-to-date and we appreciated the hotel and hot springs descriptions, which helped us find accommodations and relaxation around the island.
The photos introduced us to some of the interesting foods my husband ended up trying, such as stinky tofu (I wasn't that brave) and we learned about Taiwanese culture prior to our visit from the "Taiwan From A To Z" section. We found the maps detailed and clear. After reading "Communication Corner" we had a much better idea of what to expect about Taiwanese culture. We found people friendly but not fluent in English, so we used the English/Chinese phrases in the book on several occasions.
Along with the well-planned tour itineraries we discovered culture and humor as well as ample hiking, accurate hotel descriptions, and excellent restaurants. After reading this book we knew exactly what to expect, as if a local friend were helping us. In a nutshell, this book is exactly how a Taiwan travel guide should be, a well-planned communications book with both English and Chinese introducing the entire island of Taiwan. We were quite pleased with this book and recommend it to others.
While reading the Travel Advisor Forum I came across a reference from another Forumer who had read "Taipei In A Day" and found it very helpful.
I immediately ordered a copy from Amazon and found that the book not only covered Taipei but the whole of Taiwan. Without reading the book before going on our trip we would have found it more difficult than we did.
I recommend the book as an excellent guide to Taiwan and Taipei.
