    If it's not too rainy, this could be a wonderful time to visit the Taipei 101 Observatory. Should be less crowded, and can see some of the morning hubub of the city coming to life for the week ahead.

    Alternatively, if you want something more active and want to go for a hike, I recommend Bishan Temple off the Neihu station MRT (I believe Red Bus 2 goes to the temple from there). It's a bit of a walk, but you can also access hiking trails from the temple up to Mount Zhongshan.

    For more relaxing, simple sightseeing, you could visit Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Dahu Park, Daan Forest Park, 2/28 Peace Park, or the Taipei Martyr's Shrine and Grand Hotel

    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.Taipei Zoo

    Breakfast! The food is quite interesting (not talking McD or Starbucks here)

    And best time to go National Palace Museum before the mainland Chinese tourists come in droves (not exaggerating, it was really crowded by midday).
