Xinbei, also known as New Taipei City, stands as a newly founded part of the wider Taipei metropolitan area, stretching up from the capital to the island's northern coast.
Take a break from New Taipei with a short trip to National Palace Museum in Shilin, about 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get to know the resident critters at Taipei Zoo, appreciate the history behind Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, browse the eclectic array of goods at Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street), and get engrossed in the history at National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine.
