Hi mine midnight flight and check in acc.only from 3pm, heard there's locker in station :to store bag ?so can walk ard and any recomm. Places to go morning ..
What airline?
Locker at station charges about 50NTD/3hours.
Alternatively leave it at hotel, usually it is free on goodwill.
Places to go in the morning, how to recommend when you did not provide where you are flying off?

You drive, you will enjoy the scenery.

So in my opinion get a driver ba.

Collecting luggage means your luggage not small. And taking public transport, bus + metro? Can manage? Will you take sbs with the luggage that you will be bringing with you? If yes then ok... If not, suggest you stay in Taipei and make a day day to Wulai. The old street not interesting nor big enough for you to walk 2 hours.

Wulai to Taipei is not near. Will cost at least S$50 for Uber.

Day 5 - Bali, ferry to Tamsui, ferry or bus to Fisherman's Wharf, ferry or bus back to Tamsui. On the way back to Taipei, if not tired, can stop by Shilin Night market.

Other suggestions, Yangmingshan, CKS Memorial Hall, Longshan Temple + Snake Alley. Wikitravel should have more suggestions.
