Following a scenic drive from Keelung to Taipei, your first stop is the renowned National Palace Museum, housing an astounding selection of Chinese Imperial Art. This extraordinary collection began during the 10th century, when Chinese Emperors seized art treasures for their own pleasure. Moved in crates from city to city to escape invading armies in the 20th century, the collection finally ended its journey in Taiwan. The museum holds an estimated 700,000 items, many dating back over 4,000 years. Following your exploration of the museum, continue to the Martyrs Shrine, dedicated to the people who sacrificed their lives fighting for the Republic of China. Completed in 1969, this majestic shrine is an excellent example of classical Ming Dynasty architecture. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, before proceeding to Taipei's oldest temple and center for Buddhist and Taoist worship. More than 250 years old, the colorful Lungshan Temple is an outstanding example of classic Chinese architecture in Taiwan, embellished with ornate ceilings, intricate woodcarvings and paintings. Continue with a stop at the striking Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial, elegantly designed with an octagonal blue-tiled roof and pristine white marble walls. Before departing Taipei, drive to the spectacular Taipei 101 skyscraper, currently the tallest building in the world with 101 floors topped by a 197-foot spire. Constructed of steel, concrete and glass, the building houses a shopping mall, offices for 12,000 people, and the Taiwan stock exchange. Following a photo stop at this amazing structure, return to Keelung and the ship.
