Taipei, literally means “North of Tai(wan)”, officially known as Taipei City (Chinese: 臺北市 or 台北市) is the capital city and a special municipality of the Republic of China, commonly known as Taiwan. Sitting at the northern tip of Taiwan, Taipei City is an enclave of the municipality of New Taipei City. It is about 25 km (16 mi) southwest of the northern port city Keelung. Most of the city is located on the Taipei Basin, an ancient lakebed bounded by the two relatively narrow valleys of the Keelung and Xindian rivers, which join to form the Tamsui River along the city’s western border.
