•   Taipei (台北; literally "Northern Taiwan") is the largest city in Taiwan and has served
    as the de facto capital (provisional capital) of the Republic of China (commonly known
    as "Taiwan") since the Chinese Civil War in 1949. It is the political, economic, and
    cultural center of the country.
•   Situated at the northern tip of the island, Taipei is located on the Danshui River, and
    is about 25 km southwest of Keelung, its port on the Pacific Ocean. Another coastal
    city, Danshui, is about 20 km northwest at the river's mouth on the Taiwan Strait. It
    lies in the two relatively narrow valleys of the Keelung (基隆河) and Xindian (新店溪)
    Rivers, which join to form the Danshui River along the city's western border.[1]
•   The city proper (Taipei City) is home to an estimated 2,619,920 people (March 2009).
    Taipei City, Taipei County, and Keelung City together form the Taipei metropolitan
    area with a population of 6,752,826 (March 2009).[2] However, they are administered
    under different local government bodies. "Taipei" sometimes refers to the whole
    metropolitan area, while "Taipei City" refers to the city proper.
•   Considered to be an alpha world city,Taipei is
    part of a major industrial area. Railways, high
    speed rail, highways, airports, and bus lines
    connect Taipei with all parts of the island. The
    city is served by Songshan Airport (domestic
    and cross-strait flights) and Taiwan Taoyuan
    International Airport (international and cross-
    strait flights).
•   Taipei was founded in the early 18th century
    and became an important center for overseas
    trade in the 19th century. The Japanese
    acquired Taiwan in 1895 after the First Sino-
    Japanese War and made Taipei the island's
    capital.The Republic of China took over the
    island in 1945 after Japan's defeat in World
    War II. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek
    declared Taipei the provisional capital of the
    Republic of China in December 1949 after the
    Kuomintang (KMT) government was defeated
    by the Communists who took over most of
    Mainland China during the Chinese Civil War
