Things to Do
The most spectacular New Year's Eve event in Taiwan happens next to Taipei 101. 100,000s of people gather to hear the concerts and watch the countdown and the spectacular midnight fireworks that stream off the building itself and pop around it. It is the 5th tallest building in the world as of 2013. There is an observation deck on the 89th floor and restaurants and shopping at the mall.
Tropical Warmth at Kenting Beach: Enjoy Taiwan's tropical beaches and warm currents. December temperatures range between 25°C (77°F) during the day and 18°C (64°F) at night at Kenting, and the water is usually warmer.
Ximending Night Market: Eating hot Chinese and Japanese food is a fine way to spend a cold evening. Ximending is a popular night market in Taipei near the Taipei 101. This will be a taste and cultural experience and give you an opportunity to find gifts and souvenirs. A Taipei local favorite noodle shop called A Zong Mian Xian Restaurant has a great reputation (45 TWD per bowl (1.60 USD)). See how many of Taiwan's favorite foods, beverages and desserts you can eat.
Skiing and Snow Scenery: Hit the ski resort on Yushan Mountain. It is the second tallest mountain in Taiwan with a 3,886 meter (12,750 feet) high peak and large forests.
