Not an answer - but a related question. I thought people who could answer the posted questions might also have info for me.

We have one long day as a layover in Taipei (arrive early AM; leave late PM) on the way to Australia. Any suggested guides or tours to hit a few interesting places in Taipei on our one day visit?

They are all accessible by MRT except Elephant Mountain, which is an uphill climb from near 101. For 101, it is a 15 minute walk from the MRT station or you can take the occasional free shuttle.
