Suggestion

This would be the best way if your flight is in the morning and you have to reach the airport before 06:00 because it is operating 24 hours. Even though it might not be the most comfortable ride, but it is the best cost-saving transportation.

Suggestion:

I bought my round trip Taoyuan Airport MRT Ticket over the counter because I forgot to purchase online before my trip. The round ticket cost 290NTD payment via credit card, which is still cheaper than 160NTD (Per trip) considering the currency exchange and bank administration charge. It might be even cheaper if you purchase through Klook or Kkdays, which I would suggest doing so. The exchange counter is easy to spot, it is just right before you enter the station, now there is even free pineapple tart voucher given out for you to redeem at Ximending.

Signboard at the station can be noticed easily and it is quite easy to locate the place. However, do take note of some of the terms and conditions that are implemented for this service. I didn’t use this service as I am not staying near Taipei Main station.

To note:

Suggestion:

This is a convenient transportation that makes it easy for the locals and even tourists who need to go to the town. Because of the hotel, I am staying, I have been commuting to town using the airport every day, got to experience both express and commuter train. For the cost wise, I think that it is a reasonable and comfortable journey.
