Sign up to find out some of the best places to eat, drink and travel in Taipei for 2017.


he Ming Chuan University is a private university that was first established in 1957 and has grown into one of the most popular and prestigious universities in Taiwan. The Ming Chuan University is even accredited by the United States, and there are over 16,500 students enrolled here. The Ming Chuan University has won many awards over the years, including the Award of Excellence from the International Association of University presidents.

The Ming Chuan University was initially known as the First Woman’s Business School, and it continues to pioneer education for women in the modern era, striving for excellence, professionalism and internationalization, which are the three educational goals of the Ming Chuan University.

The Ming Chuan University is located in the Shilin District of Taipei, so guests to the university will not be short on attractions, clubs and restaurants when they visit this region. This is not the most popular district with tourists, but it is certainly up there, and this in no small part is down to the Shilin Night Market. This market is up with the Taipei 101 for “must-sees” upon visiting this great and modern city.
