Tips for you

Great place for week-end stroll
Check you target building and get the right way of transportation, or you'll get lost and exhausted in here.
The NTU is a school founded by the Japanese while they were ruling Taiwan in early 1900's. The building on the campus is full of historical and contemporary design.
This is the place to visit in Taiwan if you want to see it's top university. It feels very American, but also very Asian and distinctly Taiwanese. It's one of Asia's greatest universities.
Beautiful campus to explore and walk around. A great place to get into any sports you wish to play. The basketball is fun here, but foreigners beware skeletor and posse on the court by the street, they won't like you.
