1. Introduction

• Known for: IT companies

Nangang 南港區 is one of Taipei's eastern districts known for IT companies and exhibitions (the annual expo Computex is held here). Other than that, there are not many interesting things to see, aside from some parks. There are no important historic sights or temples, but the district is famous for modern architecture. The new Chinatrust Headquarters are being built here, which will become one of Taipei's newest landmarks. Here are the recommended parts of Nangang (my personal recommendations): Hushi Park and Nangang Park.
