Have previously lived in Taiwan for a year before, but never made it to Taipei. Am going back in a few weeks and just wondered if anyone could suggest ideas of places to stay and also visit for one, maybe two days in Taipei. Thanks:)

The night markets are well worth a visit, Shih-Lin is among the more famous ones, for good cheap food and genuine experience of the local culture. Ximending is the main shopping stretch, nice place for an evening stroll. You might want to check out the Taipei 101 as well, ex-tallest building in the world, interesting sight next to the city hall.

For accomodation it depends on your budget too. When I was there in August I stayed at the Grand Hotel as well as the Taipei Teacher's hostel. Both were fine for their respective price ranges.
