Whether you’re wanting to get away with the girls, ready to feast on pepper pork buns with your significant other, or exploring solo, Taipei is one of Hong Kong’s all-time favourite travel destinations – and with a flight time of under two hours, there’s good reason!
Brimming with night markets and unbelievable street eats (grilled squid, papaya milk smoothies, stinky tofu, peanut coated mochi – you name it!), Taiwan is also gearing up to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival on Monday, 24 September, so be sure to soak up the atmosphere and split a mooncake under the stars.
Fly to: Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport
Flight time: 1 hour 50 minutes
Best time to book: 8 weeks ahead
Tip: During Mid-Autumn you’ll traditionally find people barbecuing on every street corner and the markets booming (more than usual!) over the holiday, so we fully encourage you to stop and hang out with locals and sample everything from dumplings to traditional barbecue eats and frequent shots of rice wine!
