7 hour layover Taoyuan

Hi guys! We are transiting through taoyuan airport on the 25th of this month. Our layover is 7 hours long and we are wondering if it is worth going out for a couple of hours to see the city? What's your experienced with the airport and any advice on staying or leaving the airport!! Thanks in advance!!

Exclude your time at customs, you probably have 5 hours left. If you want to visit downtown, the transportation between airport and downtown will cost you 2 hours. Then you have only 3 hours to visit Taipei. Here is my suggestion:

1. Ximending

Visit Ximending to experience the vibe of the city. Ximending is just like Shinjuku in Tokyo. It's the hub of Taipei's pop culture and is always crowded and lively. Ximending is only 1 stop away from Taipei Main Station. you can take Taipei merto Blue line to get there. Taipei Metro Guide: http://bit.ly/2l39fQT


Mitsui outlet park is only 4 stops away from TaoYuan Airport. You can take Airport MRT(Commuter) and get off at Linkou station (A9). The outlet is just 5 minutes away by walk. There you could have some shopping and great food, and won't be too rush to get back to the airport.

Better take one of the free tours at the airport if you fit into the timeframe
