When in Taipei, you can take the MRT to the last northern stop which is a small city called DanShui. It is actually a fishing village but now it is already a tourist area. You can also find lots of local going their with their family for outing such as kayaking or cycling.
Below is the my trip there … to DanShui.
Taking the MRT from Taipei Main
Yup… there is a Waiting Zone for Ladies.
Bicycles for rent…..

Lots of scooter as usual. =)
Scooters parked along the road.
Even a small narrow alley does not stop them going through.
