I’m hungry: Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Hotel in Taipei is as famous for its dining options as much as anything else. The restaurants and lounges run the gamut from Western cuisine, Eastern, and any fusions that lay along the spectrum.

More About the Shangri-La Hotel in Taipei
The Taipei Shangri La’s massive twin towers peek out from behind the shadow of the not-so-distant Taipei 101, which is close enough for a long walk or a short cab ride. Its forty-some floors give commanding views of the city, especially since they were smart enough to put restaurants near the top.
The Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Hotel in Taipei is luxurious and has a very Eastern feel. I mean, they named their lounge after Li Bai, arguably the most famous poet in Chinese history (appropriately, he was a lover of living in the moment and getting drunk). If you’re looking to make it to Taiwan and not feel like you’re in a room airlifted directly from the United States, Taipei’s Shangri-La Hotel definitely gives you that pure feeling of Chinese hospitality and elegance.
A drawback of the Shangri-La in Taipei is that it’s not particularly close to any major sights, though it could be said that it is in itself one of the destinations in Taipei. As mentioned above, it’s pretty close to Taipei 101, but if that’s your goal, there are places much better-suited.
If it’s Chinese-style luxury you seek, Taipei’s Shangri-La Far Eastern Plaza Hotel is among the best choices.
