9 hour layover at TPE

I'm researching for friends who will pass through TPE this coming fall on the way to the Philipines.

They have a 9 hour layover. Is there anything close enough for them to do? They will be a party of 5, speak no Chinese and have never visited Taipei or Taiwan before.

Any change to go into the city? Your recommendations please.

Clearing customs and getting into downtown Taipei takes at least 1.5 hours, so for both ways you are looking at 3 hours minimum, and more if traffice is bad. That leaves you with 6 hours to explore the city.

Obviously you can't do anything in depth in 6 hours, but that should be enough time to explore the area around Taipei train station, maybe even XMD.

Are they still offering the bus tour from the airport out into the city? I too have a 9 hour layover in Taipei on my way to Singapore
