Fashion designer Han Feng loves the Taiwanese city for its "slow pace, nice people and country-peasant style."
Stay: Villa 32
I live in Shanghai part-time, so popping over to Taipei for the weekend is easy; it's just a two-hour flight. When I'm in town, I go to Villa 32 for its hot springs, and I get a facial at its spa. Rooms start at $535; No. 32, Zhongshan Rd.; 886-2/6611-8888; villa32.com.
