Taipei tops list of must-see destinations on U.S. website

Taipei, March 2 (CNA) Taipei has been listed as No. 1 among "53 beautiful cities everyone should visit at least once" on BuzzFeed, a U.S.-based social news and entertainment website. The list was posted Feb. 13, with each city's name accompanied by a postcard-style photo. Taipei was first, followed by the Latvian capital Riga, Brussels, Vancouver, Dublin, Istanbul, Hong Kong, New York, Sydney and Rio de Janeiro, in that order. Other Asian cities on the list were Shanghai (12), Bangkok (16), Phnom Penh (29), Tokyo (33), New Delhi (36), Tel Aviv (38), Beirut (39), Kuala Lumpur (42) and Singapore (48). There was no explanation of the method used to rank the cities, nor was any information given about those that made the list. It is not the first time that BuzzFeed has given high marks to Taipei as a tourist destination. In February 2014, the website put Taipei at the top of a list of 26 "remarkable places for solo travel." Taipei was highlighted then mainly for its many bustling night markets and its reputation for hospitality. (By Oscar Wu and Jay Chen)
