Your friend got no planning skill so stay home watch youtube better.
Actual experience and youtube is totally different, you can't smell the fresh air, feel the power of nature and see the ever changing mountains view.

There is a chocolate them park in Taipei.

Would suggest you to go to Taiwan tourism office here in SG for their advice and recommendations, if you do not wish to spend too much time googling...

No what, the word "theme" is correct. Coz the whole place is just for chocolates - which is the "theme" (aka 主题).

Jiufen and shifen are nearby.
Your day trip should be, juifen old street, shifen old street, Shifen railway station (放天灯), Shifen Waterfall (十分大瀑布) then back to Taipei.
Possible to cover this itinerary in half a day (say 1pm to 7pm?)
