Exkursionen in Keelung

Confucius Temple & Market

Experience various aspects of Chinese culture - the ornate Confucius Temple and the exotic Di Hua Market Street. Upon arrival in Taipei, your first visit is to the Confucius and Pao An Temples.


Confucius Temple

Temples to Confucius are a concrete symbol of Chinese Confucian culture. The origins of this stunningly beautiful temple complex can be traced back to 1875 when the Qing court established Taipei as a prefecture city for Northern Taiwan. The complex includes the literary and martial temples. Of special note are constructions on the roof of the main hall that look like chimneys.


Following your visit, a short drive brings you to the lively action of the Di Hua Old Market area.


Di Hua Old Market Street

Leave the coach for a leisurely stroll, taking in the sights and getting a feel of Taipei's past and present. The shops in the traditional Di Hua Market have been the most important place for Chinese medicine and exotic food items since the Japanese colonial period. While the market is most popular prior to the Chinese New Year, you may experience an atmosphere slightly less hectic.


At the end of your walk, re-join your coach for the drive back to Keelung Port. Time permitting, a photo stop at Taipei 101 for an exterior visit may be offered.


Please note: This tour involves some walking at the temples and the Di Hua Old Market Street, with a few steps to climb. Guests must be able to embark/disembark the coach via steps. Space on this tour is limited.

Mu Zha Tea Experience & Zhi Nan Temple

Visit the hilly Mu Zha Tea Park in the Wenshan district of Taipei and one of the largest and oldest temples in Northern Taiwan on this half-day excursion.


Leaving Keelung Port by coach, a 45-minute drive takes you to the forested hills of Mu Zha, famous for its tea plantations and teahouses. At Mu Zha, switch to a mini van for the winding road up to the Zhi Nan Temple. The van will conveniently drop you off at the temple's rear entrance to avoid climbing the long flight of steps.


Zhi Nan Temple

Perched on a mountainside, this beautiful temple is over 100 years old. Its architecture represents the traditional Chinese temple complex and the three philosophies of Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism.


Following your visit, proceed to Maokong where the history of tea culture dates back more than 100 years. A visit to the Tea Museum provides some insight into the delicate process of the fragrant brew.


Three Stone Tea Pot Museum

The popular museum is known for its collection of some 200 tea pots, including the ancient purple sand pots from the Ming Dynasty. The owner of the museum, Chang Kun-hung, has devoted all his life to tea growing. He converted his house into a museum to display his collection. Enjoy watching a tea ceremony demonstration and the tasting of high quality tea.


Then take a troll in the tea garden and along an ecology trail en route to the Maokong Gondola Station.


Maokong Gondola

Take in the scenic views as you ride the gondola down to Mu Zha, where you will re-join your coach for the drive back to Keelung Port.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking, with a few steps to climb. Guests are transferred via minivan for a portion of the tour due to the narrow, winding roads. A tour of the tea garden is not always possible. Space on this tour is limited; we suggest you book in advance.

The enormous ground floor hall contains a museum with exhibits about Chiang's life, plus various tourist facilities and an elevator to the upper level.


Presidential Square

Following your visit, continue with your sightseeing drive, making a brief photo at the Presidential Square.

Partially destroyed by Allied bombs, the Nationalist government repaired the damages after the Japanese surrender. In 1998, the building was declared a historic national monument.


Martyrs' Shrine

Proceed with your drive, heading toward the grand and magnificent memorial known as Martyr's Shrine.

National Palace Museum
