Aside from poor air quality ( air pollution from the Scooter) and traffic. It’s a ok city for shopping and restaurants. It’s not the Taipei nor the area near the Taipei 101.

Downtown Taipei is where the night life is. But Taipei is seriously crowded on the weekends. New Taipei City seems more for family or business travelers less interested in night life. It's quieter and more laid back. Stay in NTC and visit Taipei.
