This city is the largest city in Taiwan and also second largest city in East Asia and is home to popular landmarks such as the Grand Hotel.
Taipei is also a hub unlocked in Alpha Protocol after Operation Desert Spear along with Moscow and Rome. Michael Thorton is informed of a pre-existing Alpha Protocol safehouse that is completely under the agency's radar because of their insistence on complete discretion, deniability, and secrecy by Mina Tang. He enters his new high-tech safehouse and launches Operation True Heirs. His primary mission in Taipei is to investigate the intel he posesses about a possible assassination attempt on the President of the Republic of China - Ronald Sung, and stop this Halbech-planned plot and hinder their overall conspiracy to start global conflict to benefit their arms sales.
