This impressive stop on your Taipei tour is a three-level structure, comprised of 13 uniquely themed areas for kids, including gliding on zip lines, building rockets, shopping at the farmer’s market and more.

Prices begin at $355, per night.
For the all-ages crowd, the Explore Package is a great way to get around Taipei and see all the city sites.
