Taipei Insiders

The Taipei Exchange was an event powered by SUITCASE Magazine, The WW Club and The W Taipei – five days of discovering the city through its pioneering females and locals. We brought influential women from the UK and USA with specialities and interests that would guide them in their discovery of the city. With the help of local blogger Stephanie Hsu of Thousandth Girl, who curated individual itineraries, each woman was able to experience a specific part of Taiwanese culture.

Alice Levine, Radio DJ, TV presenter, and co-founder of food company Jackson Levine set out with our Managing Editor Emily Ames to discover the best street eats in Taipei while Phoebe Lovatt, founder of The WW Club and Olivia Lopez, travel blogger extraordinaire, went in search of the spaces and places that earned this city the title of World Design Capital in 2016. Finally Madeline Poole, founder of MP Nails and founder of SUITCASE Magazine Serena Guen experienced the weird and wonderful side to Taipei’s beauty scene.

Here you’ll find their travel diaries and individual itineraries to follow during your time in Taipei.
