Explore Metro has just launched a new iPhone app for the Taipei Metro, making it easier than ever to get around (though if, like me, you have not yet succumbed to the i-revolution, it looks you'll have to wait a bit longer for the full Explore Taipei site to get going.)
So, what is this Explore Metro outfit all about? It's been helping make sense of the underground systems in major Asian cities since 2007. It's online, bi-lingual and up-to-date which puts it head and shoulders above the competition. So far, Explore Metro has things covered in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Taipei and Singapore with Seoul and Tokyo soon to come. If you're headed to any of those places, they are well worth checking out.
