    24 Hours In Taipei

    Next weekend I am meeting an old friend in Taipei he has a 24 hour layover before his flight back to the US and would like to see some of the city. What sights would you guys recommend that are near the airport? Which night market is best?

    Firstly the airport is in Taoyuan, not Taipei, so best you take a bus into Taipei and start from there.

    Take the bus and get off earlier, near Yuanshan MRT station.
    Then go to Zhishan station and find a bite, near by TianMu area for a stroll

    Or 101 and near by SunYatSen memorial hall

    Raohe night market is smaller than shilin but I like it more. Think the food is better and just as crowded. And try 林東芳牛肉麵 for their beef noodles. So good.

    I think you may visit "Zi Lam" night Market which seems the most famous and near the railway in Taipei,

    Thanks for the replies. Does anyone know if they still offer the free half day tours at the airport, are they worth it?
