About Taipei - The Host City of the 39th IMO
Taipei, Taiwan's historic and vibrant capital,
is truly a city of multi-faces, where ancient and
modern co-exist. Taiwan's "economic miracle"
has put a modern face on the city and its people,
but Taipei is still Chinese at heary, with an
underlying current of traditional lifestyles and
culture that makes it a fascinating city to visit.
National Palace Museum, which houses the
world's largest assemblage of priceless Chinese
art treasures, encapsulates the 5,000_years
history of Chinese culture and attracts millions
of visitors every year.
