To take a fast comfortable train, to International airport, is the best you can do. Less tan 40 minutes, instead of 90 minutes by road, if you are lucky with tragic. They have several places for a meal, with good quality. They have a guest relations and they speak good English. Allé station including platforms, are extremely clean.

Thankfully they helped me to change my tickets to the next trip which is an hour later. Taichung train station is big and has two main exits. One leads to a... More

Travelled here by Railway train. Our hotel is really near here (City Inn), there are a number of taxis waiting just right outside the station, thus if you need to get to the central area, it might be easier to come here to hail taxis as it's a straight path there. The bus station seems to be here nearby as... More

The Taichung Station is under construction and transforming to a new and modern station with HSR train. But they still keep the old station so visitors can enjoy exploring the architecture of it

Taichung Station is an old structure that transcends time, It is located at the main road. All buses last stop is the Taichung Train Station, also where the Gancheng Bus Stop is located
