There's lots more to do: pause for some photo ops at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, see the interesting displays at National Palace Museum, visit Ximending, and get to know the resident critters at Taipei Zoo.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Taipei online tour planner.
