I tried to book tickets of Taroko Express train from Hualien to Taipei travelling on 30 August 2012, which is 2 weeks from now, but fail to do so. It stated that tickets are sold out. End up I manage to book a normal Tzechiang train from Hualien to Taipei but it takes 50 mins more compared to Taroko Express. Is there any possibility that I could still book a Taroko Express train?
Is there any lunch box for purchase in normal Tzechiang train from Hualien to Taipei?
