Cruise to Taipei (Keelung), Taiwan

Surrounded by mountains on three sides, the harbor city of Keelung is the gateway to Taipei. After your ship arrives, take the 25-minute drive into Taiwan's capital, where art, nature and architecture both traditional and modern meet. Cruise to Taipei and walk the narrow corridors of Jiu Fen Old Street, stopping to take tea while you soak in the mountain and ocean scenery. Then, see the city's modern side by climbing Taipei 101, a 449-meter-tall skyscraper with a sightseeing deck for panoramic views. Or spend your time absorbing the natural splendor: Hike Mount Keelung to its now-extinct volcanic summit, then see the Golden Waterfall below before you head to the Yin Yang Sea for some beach time.

Local Cuisine

Taipei's night markets are the place to go for Taiwanese street food — and despite their name, many open around noon. Cruise to Taipei to fill up on lu rou fan (braised minced pork over rice), or niu rou mien, a bowl of noodles topped with tender braised beef and served in comforting beef broth. Then, cool down with pao pao bing, a sweet flavored ice. Or try liu sha, a golden-fried donut filled with sweet, eggy custard.
