You can find lounges for the old, the weak, the pregnant and the disabled in the airport.
There are also VIP Lounges there: one opposite the Security Check on 3F; Room V1-3 next to Boarding Gate 24, M2; Room 4-6 next to the Information Desk on. However, they are not special for East China Airlines passengers. You'd better call your airlines to consult about this.
If you want to explore the city during your transfer time, you need to get a transit visa in advance. If you just stay inside the airport, you do not need any visa. Usually, it is hard to get a transit visa on arrival.
