Taipei, Taiwan

What are great things to do in Taipei that aren't crowded with tourists?

I want to get away from the more touristy areas in Taipei. What are great, "local only" places I can go and visit? Looking for places and things to do that aren't frequented by tourists. Mainly into sight seeing, local culture and the outdoors.

Taipei has an absolutely wonderful zoo (Taipei Zoo). It opens at 9:00 a.m. Use public transit -- take the MRT Wenshan-Neihu Line and get off at Taipei Zoo Station.

I would visit  Treasure Hill (the Artist Village). It's a bit out of the way so not that many tourists there usually but such a great place that I wish more people knew about.

I recommend elephant mountain which you can see the sight view of Taipei. You don't need to hike a lot and it is better to go at night.
