The city is characterized by straight roads and public buildings of grand Western architectural styles. The city is built on a square grid configuration, however these blocks are huge by international standards (500 m (1,640.42 ft) sides as you can see in Taipei roads map). However there is little uniformed planning within these blocks; therefore lanes (perpendicular to streets) and alleys (parallel with street, or conceptually, perpendicular to the lane) spill out from the main throughways. These minor roads are not always perpendicular and sometimes cut through the block diagonally.

Xinsheng South Road is known as the "Road to Heaven" due to its high concentration of temples, shrines, churches, and mosques as its shown in Taipei roads map. Most (but not all) road signs and street signs have both English and Chinese. However, English spellings of towns, streets and even cities are amusingly inconsistent from place to place.(Hsinchu and Shinju, Taitung and Taidong, Zhongshan Road and Chung Shan Road…the list is endless). Road conditions are generally good, but motorists driving in the mountains should be mindful of the fact that Taiwan mountain roads are especially vulnerable to damage from typhoons and earthquakes, and are thus regularly under repair.

Getting around Taipei is extremely simple. The roads and public transport networks are universally efficient and simple to understand and there is a range of trustworthy options available to get you to every corner of the city (see Taipei roads map). It is important to note that all vehicles drive on the right-hand side of the road in Taiwan and that, in the event of an accident, you should not move your vehicle at all, even if you are obstructing a major junction.
