A solo traveller on holiday in Taipei attempts to capture the beauty of Taipei City through a time-lapse video and to showcase some of the sights and scenery which this beautiful city has to offer.

In this 4-minute video that goes from dawn till after-dusk, you will witness the beautiful sunrise from different locations, see the locals go about their morning activities, travel through the city in various forms of transport systems, and of course, get to visit the many attractions that Taipei offers.

Join me for a stroll around the main business and shopping district of Xinyi, and also experience the rides in the Miramar Ferris Wheel and the Maokong Gondola. After enjoying the spectacular sunset of the entire Taipei City from Taipei 101, the exciting night lights of Taipei City will unfold before your very eyes.

To the people of Taipei, this city is beautiful because of you. This is “Taipei Timelapse / Hyperlapse 2014”, and this video is specially for you.

Behind-the-scenes photos and more information on the places visited will be made available on my Instagram @pettypoh13 ~ #taipeitimelapse2014
