I am going to visit China this year – here are some apps I’m using to help plan my Taipei visit!
Taipei City Guide
A free travel guide for Taipei in English including activities and sites, tours, food and drink, nightlife, shopping, and things to know before you travel there. Has transportation and city maps and it all works offline. Useful!
This is a simple, free map of the Taipei Metro in English and Chinese. It’s a little difficult to read if you zoom in because of the resolution, but it works and is accurate.
Taipei Bus Situation Alert
This is a bus map – you can search by station and see what the next arrival time of a bus is at that station. It’s in Chinese only!
Speak Chinese Free
This free version of Speak Chinese has the basics of Chinese to help you get by while traveling China. Recordings spoken by a native – useful categories and commonly used phrases. Works offline.
This app is a free weather app for Taiwan. Very good for Taipei, though you need to manually enter the date because it doesn’t seem to detect it. Simple to use and pretty UI.
