Are there any 1 or half day bundled tour packages in Taipei? I am keen on 101 and national palace museum 故宫。

Any suggestions for where to snooze around Taoyuan Airport to kill time whilst waiting for another group to arrive 7 hours later?

Flying by Scoot (arr 5:30), and other group is coming via SQ (arr 13:00)

I will leave my luggage at the airport lockers.
What you can possibly do is to take a bus to Taoyuan HSR and visit the outlets when they open possibly at 10 plus 11.
Would have advise you to go to Zhongli from Airport if you have nothing to do.
Your group will likely be out something like 1:30pm onwards.

Thanks!
My main concern is that I'll be rather sleepy, so thinking of a good option to catch a rest for maybe 2-3 hours, then I'll be more energetic.
Tried resting before at the seats where folks wait for the buses to city etc. But not really that comfy for a proper rest.

No sleeping lounges or similar at the airport or nearby, hor ?

A better place to go is T2. I find it more spacious there.
Since your friends are coming out from T2, why not also drop your luggage there and explore the area?
Sadly you cannot access the lounge unless you are on transit though.
If you care for a 1000 winks, head to zhongli and book a 3hr slot.
Then snooze till about 12pm then back to airport after lunching.

Heading to Zhongli sounds like a good idea

Yeah bummer that the airport lounge will not be accessible.
Was hoping for some of those reclining chairs like they have in Changi. Those should suffice.

My previous trip I arrived same timing and then tried to rest at airport for a bit before going for the cycle exhibition... wah that one damn jialat. By 3pm cannot keep my eyes open.



Thanks for the suggestion!

Follow your blog lor.
捷運:下迴龍捷運站可搭 【橘26】即可到達本夜市

Then whether the night market still will be there when you arrive is another thing.
Such night markets are dying out very fast.

地址:新北市樹林區保安街2段70號
營業時間:每周三,四,五,六,日下午5點~凌晨12:00
公休日每周一,二
聯絡電話:0908111333




The night market is in 新北市 and not 台北市, I don't think the metro can reach there. To go to 新北市 树林,you have to take their train.


Why make such a great effort in visiting a night market?


新北市 previously is known as 台北县 (Taipei county)

Can be done and safe to be on electric bikes.
Nonetheless for turns just go slow, many accidents on bends.
Hi calkel,

rather then bringing a 28" luggage over to 小琉球, is it possible to store the luggage at say Kaohsiung Train Station for a few days?

Ideally store it at your hotel of next stay.
Normally ppl go 小琉球for 2D1N nia.

Cannot wait in the city or hotel?

After jetting a mid-night flight, can be rather tiring.
