If you're taking the bus, it's gonna take close to an hour (or more depending on traffic) from the city to the airport and vice versa.

Fortunately for you (and I'm assuming based on the news), there will be a new MRT from the airport to Taipei Main Station (that's in the city) and it will only take you 36 minutes to and from the city. That's your best bet if you wanna save time.

Anywhere around Taipei Main Station or Zhongshan area is pretty strategic for you to move around. I personally like the Ximending area for its youthful vibe and well... shopping.

If you don't want to know what to do/see, here's what I like to do.

Walk around the SYS Memorial Hall area, over to the Taipei 101, there's a bit of a park there.

The Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall area also, worth a walk around.

Go up Elephant Mountain, the views are worth it.

Keelung Night Market is only about 30 minutes away from Taipei by train and Keelung is worth at least half a day anyway.

Shifen, Jiufen, Yangmingshan National Park. Personally recommend Shifen for the waterfall, I'm not a big fan of the town itself.

There is a lot to see in Tamsui. One could justify at least half a day there and more if you want to want to see everything that there is to see there.
