Getting into Taipei

MRT Train is best

Taxi

Taxis are metered and reliable. The journey should take 30-40 minutes but may take more in peak hours. When returning to the airport, don't ask a taxi driver for 'Taipei Airport', as they may well take you to Taipei Songshan Airport in the city.

Cost: Around TWD 1,000-1,200 (TWD 900 if you pre-book)
Location: Ranks outside Arrivals halls of both terminals

Bus

A range of buses run from both terminals with services every 10-20 minutes. The journey takes around 55 minutes. The Kuo-Kang bus (blue, white and purple) will take you to Taipei Main Station. This is also a handy, affordable route back to the airport (leaving from Exit Z5).

Cost: TWD 125 (exact fare needed in Taiwan dollars)

Train

A direct rail link (Taoyuan International Airport Mass Rapid Transit) connects the airport to downtown Taipei, Taipei Main Station in 36 minutes. To board the express MRT train, take the A12 train from Terminal 1 or the A13 train from Terminal 2.

Cost: TWD 150
