Taipei is known as a highly advanced, efficient city famous for modern marvels such as the Taipei 101 and a convenient metro system.
On the outskirts of the city, however, things can get a little more gritty. Head west into the suburbs of New Taipei City, home to used car dealerships and an urban sprawl wedged into narrowing valleys, and one will find the eerie and mostly abandoned Losheng Sanitarium.
Located on a hill behind the enormous construction site of a new MRT depot, this facility is a must-visit for anyone interested in photography, abandoned places and urban exploration.
