For XMD, go at evening or night. More activities there. You can sometimes see the push carts playing hide and seek with the health inspectors.

danshui can go after 12pm, preferably in the weekends, to enjoy the crowd and atmosphere.

There are a few streets in the TMS underground mall. Can take a lot of time to cover all of them if you're into shopping. You can find a lot of cheap shoes for the ladies. then there is a book street (towards shuanglian mrt) selling lots of books, mainly chinese of course. my kids love to hang around there.

day 2 is pretty relaxed. the wufenpu, go near evening time.

shida no more already. if ur girl is a teenager, maybe can consider gongguan nm which is near a university, so the stuff there are geared towards students. if not, ningxia nm is good, but pretty short street. i go ningxia nm for oyster egg and sesame oil kidney, liver and chicken.

taipei 101 by itself is not so fun unless u r into shopping and more shopping. it is the surrounding towards taipei city hall mrt that is interesting. i'll visit it from evening onwards. there may be street performers singing or doing breakdance. The last time I was there, I sat for 1 hr listening to an aspiring group singing many nice songs.
Actually I not interested to go Shilin or TP 101 but for the sake of going, at least see it once.

Mine is a teen so i guess Gongguan will b in my list too

gongguan got a lot of street food and also restaurants selling steamboat and/or bbq buffets. looks very mouth watering.

I find that there's nothing much to see at Maokong. Sort of a place for hiking and for tea.

beitou is boring if you're not going there to soak in the hot spring. the hell valley is a waste of time lol. nothing like the ones in japan. you won't miss anything if you don't visit.

maokong is not too bad if you have extra time to spare. take the cable car up and chillax at one of the cafes to try their tea flavored ice-creams and tea. can pop by the taipei zoo at the same time as it's dirt cheap at NT60.

i personally don't find shilin that bad. perhaps the food is not as good to some as the other nm are but overall more variety of things to see.

before 101, what you can do is to alight at taipei cityhall and walk towards 101. along the way can pop in some of the malls. https://guidetotaipei.com/visit/xiny...BE%A9%E5%8D%80

anyone can help me? Not really into scenery

visited taiwan once (taipei, taichung, kaoshiung, cingjing, SML). Now I have another 7 days in taiwan and not sure what to do. One place I want to revisit 九份 and can I stay in keelung after that as it seems keelung nearer to Jiufeng. Last time I went jiufeng via cab and realised a train may be a good option

I agree that their zoo is quite interesting, ticket is cheap and the place is huge.

Supposed to be this Dec, but looks like there are still issues found after the typhoon, so it may be delayed to next year.
