Suggestions on Taiwan Itinerary

Hi everyone! Seeking your collective wisdom please. Fiancee and I will be headed for our wedding shoot to Taipei in November this year. We will be there from 13th Nov to 19th Nov, and will be engaged for the shoot on 13th (selection of gowns), 15th (actual shoot) and 16th (selection of photos). Understand 14th is a PH.

As the last time I've been to TW was some years ago, wanted to check if there are some suggested places to visit?

I recall/think we'll want to go to the following places:

Shida night market
Shilin night market
I recall visiting somewhere which had a meal cooked with tea leaves? Highland area.

We're not particularly caught up in the jiufen/shifen stuff to do I think.

Am thinking of doing a one night stay in one of the hot spring places at xin beitou also. Any recommendations?

Thanks much! Understand its a bit over the place, so hoping to pick your minds to firm up the itinerary.

Day 4 wise, i think you should switch some ard with 3.
At least when you go airport, you smell good.

I don't know what is your trip plan so can't really help.
If you doing day trip only, then Yang Ming Shan for sure.
