Layover Guide’s Suggestions Of Things To Do On A Taipei Layover:

Taipei Tour
If you only have a limited time to spend in Taipei but want to catch the main sights, a tour might be a good way to spend your time. There are many tours to choose from including walking and bike tours, music, art and literary tours, spa tours, cooking classes, food tours, nightlife, hiking and camping, and much more!

Taipei 101
At 508 meters high, Taipei 101 (also known as the Taipei Financial Center) has a great observation deck where you can check out the city views. Adult entry costs NT $400 and the tower is open from 10AM to 10PM. Entrance and ticket booth are located at the 5th floor of the Taipei 101 Shopping Mall. For more information on the different observatories in the tower, click here. And for a Taipei Flexi Attractions Pass, which gives you access to over 35 top destinations including Taipei 101, click here.

National Palace Museum
With artwork dating back to the tenth century, the National Palace Museum displays many exhibits of cultural artifacts from the Sung, Yüan, Ming and Ch’ing dynasties. For a listing of the current exhibitions, click here and for hours and ticket prices, click here.

Shilin Night Market
If you’re arriving in the evening and looking to do some shopping, check out the Shilin Nightmarket. Here you can find almost any product and any type of food, but you have to face the crowds to do it. The easiest ways to get here are to take a taxi or the MRT Danshui line to Chientan Station.

Longshan Temple
Dedicated to Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy, this Buddhist temple was built in 1738 by Han settlers. The temple has a lot of character and is more removed from the hustle and bustle of Taipei. It’s located at 211 Guangzhou Road and the nearest MRT station is ‘Longshan Temple’ on the Ban-Nan Line. It’s open daily from 5AM to 10PM.
