Despite its population of only 23 million people, Taiwan is the world’s 24th largest economy and Asia’s sixth strongest. Taiwan’s economy boomed in the 1980s, but the recent, rapid rise of China has been a windfall for this island and its capital, Taipei. Wealthy Chinese mainlanders are now arriving in droves as Taiwan continues to relax travel restrictions on Chinese travellers. With that in mind, the 405-room W Taipei opened last year in a gleaming stainless-steel tower adorned with scarlet neon lights. To get into the heart of action, you only need to step outside W Taipei. The hotel is surrounded by exuberant nightlife, scintillating entertainment, and fashionistas with an attitude. The hip Uni-Hankyu department store is downstairs, while other world-class malls are conveniently connected by a suspended footbridge. Taipei 101 – currently the world’s second tallest building – and the National Dr Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall are only a few minutes away.
