Big station; eat the train bento

Big station and some convenience shops. Remember to buy and eat the bentos - a must try for first timers. :)

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

We arrive in Taichung by bus from Taipei, our hotel is just walking distance from the bus station, Chance hotel, clean and convenient if you are getting public transport. The bus station is located at the old terminal but you can walk across to the new train terminal and there are lots of shopping and street food and hotel too.... 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

Located in the heart of Taichung, a good place to stay near if arriving, departing or basing yourself in the area. Buses also arrive/depart from here, including sun moon lake, mountain spa, lugang and mountain rail. A new tourist centra opened here recently.

Located at the heart of the CBD, this train station is busy like a bee hive. It will bring you to whatever destination you desire

Easy to get around, if unsure which train to catch most locals will see you looking lost and offer to help before you even ask! That's beautiful Taiwan for you!
