I'll be coming to Taipei on business in October. This will be the start of a 10-12 day trip to multiple countries within Asia. I'm wondering if its worth it to come to Taipei a day early to see any sights ahead of time? I'd only like to do this if there are really things worth seeing, as it will be a long time away from home even without the extra day, but I certainly don't want to miss anything worthwhile.
My business colleagues tell me there's not much in the area other than the tallest building and National Palace Museum.
This is my first trip to Taiwan and any tips are appreciated.
