Amazing and beautiful place if you can get out into the countryside. We did an excursion to see the north coast and an old gold mining town. A Teahouse there is said to be the inspiration for the bathhouse in the anime movie “Spirited Away”. We also walked quickly around the Keelung night market before the ship left. The sights, sounds and delicious smells would have easily been worth an overnight port of call. We wished we could have done the Taipei 101 Tower, but there was simply not enough time. Next time.
About Keelung (Taipei), Taiwan
Across the Formosa Strait from mainland China is the bustling port of Keelung, on the island of Taiwan. Just 20 miles inland is Taipei, the national capital, one of the most prosperous cities in Asia. Marvel at the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, the Grand Hotel, and the National Palace Museum, with its art treasures from Beijing's Forbidden City.

Booked a Best of Taipei tour using this site for the day at Keelung. The operator was Shorex and we found out we booked a tour for the previous day on the set day number but the date was April 8 while we arrived April 9th and all for of us lost tour and money. Distrust this site and book with the boat instead or do it by yourself for Taipei, as we ended up doing using Sightseeing Hop on, Hop on bus.
Hurried. Went to museum first and used up too much time. Lunch was delicious and used up too much time. Afternoon stops were 10-15 minutes each and not sufficient to see the venues. City seemed clean, but we were disappointed not to experience more.
