First time going to Taiwan 6d5n help pls

Will be landing at taoyuan Airport on 18 April friday around 12noon via sq.

And plan to leave on 23 April afternoon via China air.

Can anyone recommend what would be a recommended itinerary for me and my wife.
Not very keen into temples and museum.
Not sure if we have enough time to travel out of Taipei.
Have not even booked lodging yet.

Thanks

You may want to check out other threads in this forum ...
They are quite useful ...
Drivers, accommodations, shopping places, sim card, itinerary

For hotel prices, u might want to use third party sites such as agoda, expedia, etc . You would be able to see the room size, prices, location on the map, review. For more hotel room images, you can use tripAdvisor ...

There are many threads here that give a lot of info, I shall not repeat, you check yourself.

What I suggest you do is, get a hotel that is close to MRT (exit), preferrably <10 minutes walk, 5 minute even better. With that you can move around easily and possibly cheaply. Next if you into local food, xmd and 东门站has many good food within working distance, xmd shopping (youngster) etc.

If you have time go out fr Taipei city, go 淡水/左岸,乌来,碧潭,九分/金瓜石,莺歌,北投, all can be done via day trip (even via public transport), you will do more than just shopping, and see a wider spectum of taipei.

China air pilots on labour strike now. By April should be settled. Good luck.

I have always stay at airbnb be it im with a group of friends or just 2 pax.
Can book those room that is for 2pax that will be cheaper. )
I booked mine @ $288.39 for 5 nights
Don't think any hotel that is located at xmd would be this cheap.

Depending on the days you are going ...
Usually Sun to Thu, xmd hotels are cheaper, can be as low as $40+ , such as diary hotels, ecfa, tomorrow, go sleep etc ...

Based on my travel dates (thu to sun)
3 nights stay: Average about $60+ (some with breakfast)

Tomorrow @ $158.76
Good 9 Stay Inn @ $161.56
Diary of Ximen Hotel II-Liu Fu Branch @ $191.01
Kingshi (with breakfast) @ $189.16
Go Sleep Hankou @ $186
Go Sleep Xining @ $173
Sunny @ $179.26
Lio (with breakfast) @ $164
Muzik Hotel - Ximending Xining @ $179.56
All prices taxes in for 3 nites ...
