Limited Time in Taipei Question

Taipei as seen from the Taipei 101 Building

Q. I’m flying home (LAX) From Australia on June 12, and I booked a flight that has a layover in Taipei. I arrive at 6am and my flight home leaves at 4:20pm, so if I’m lucky I’ll have 8 hours to get into the city and back to the airport. Any advice? How long does it take to get into the city from the airport? What’s the best way to go, train, bus? Once there, what should I do/see?

That is essentially same amount of time I had when I went to Taipei, and it is really easy to get in and out of from the airport, especially at 6am. I just cruised around town, took the subway which was easy and went to the Taipei 101 building, which is one of the tallest buildings in the world, and went to the top, you should do the same. I also went to one of the temples there, the Longshan Temple, walked through this little area of the city right next to the temple where all the locals eat lunch and then went and had a drink at the Grand Hotel, famous hotel where they filmed Kill Bill.
