About Taipei

Amidst towering skyscrapers and bustling markets, ancient temples and serene parks offer insight into a deep-rooted culture. Navigate diverse neighborhoods, savor culinary treasures, and dive into a rich tapestry of customs and language. Venture into the city's lively Ximen and Zhongshan districts, where a variety of gay-friendly venues await. 

Located in the heart of Taipei, the Ximen and Zhongshan districts stand out as the city's unofficial gay havens. Here, an enticing array of venues that cater to every facet of the queer community can be found. From chic bars and pulsating clubs to serene and inviting saunas, these neighborhoods embrace a full spectrum of tastes and styles.

Having spent decades quietly simmering away as a hotbed of queer culture in Asia, Taipei is now regarded as the capital of LGBTQ+ life in the continent. Taiwan is considered to be the most gay-friendly country in Asia, and Taipei is, unsurprisingly, a fantastic gay travel destination. Despite this atmosphere of acceptance, public dispays of affection are uncommon among the entire population.
