nov-dec period is worst time to visit taipei cause always raining and gllomy weather. want to go out also mafan cause heavy rain

sept-oct is still the best time to visit tw. end of typhoon season, sun does not set so early at 5pm, more sunny days.

some people want the cooler weather. so dec onwards is ideal. i always go taiwan in dec. only very few times it rained, most days are shiny and cooling.

hi all, will be going to taipei alone tmr. so wish to ask ask if my impromptu planning for this trip is ok or not. :o previously went taipei b4, but only 2 days, so this time round have abit more days to explore ard.

day 1 - reach tpe ard noon. climb elephant hill, take day or evening pic of 101, ???

day 2 - go shifen, houtong cat village, jiufen (visited b4, maybe juz want to take nite pic)

day 3 - go yeliu (half day or full day?), ningxia night market

day 4 - go danshui (half day or full day?), take sunset pic of danshui wharf?

day 5 - go ximending eat eat walk walk, go 24hr eslite bookstore, buy some stuff, fly back to sg at nite

i read somewhere online that day 2 and 3 can be done together in 1 day, excluding the houtong cat village. not sure how true, since i doing it solo.

thks in advance.
