I am confused abt buying the trains ticket online from taipei to hualien.

I should book from which website?

1) http://163.29.3.96/TWRail_EN/index.aspx
2) http://www.railway.gov.tw/en/index/index.aspx

If from No. 2, whats the diff between the 3 types of trains?
And if to and fro, means I must book two times right?

From 1st link, look for Tze-Chiang Limited Express, these trains with a double green mountain logo are express train, from taipei to hualien in about 2 hours 5~10 minutes.

Let say you want...

2011/2/5 Saturday From < Taipei> To < Hualien>, book Tze-Chiang Limited Express Train Code 1091, train leave taipei main station at 0720, reached hualien at 0925.

2011/2/5 Saturday From < Hualien > To < Taipei >, book Tze-Chiang Limited Express Train Code 1096, train leave hualien at 2030, reached taipei at 2240.

... Where is shulin?
Shulin (樹林) is in Taipei County. It is between Banciao (板橋) and Yingge (鶯歌) railway stations. If you are heading southbound from Taipei on the railway line, Shulin is the next stop after Banciao. Shulin is a designated origin and final destination on some railway train services.

i ate breakfast opposite east dragon hotel b4, i didnt recall got bus stop outside the hotel, easiest should just take a cab from taipei main station, NT$130 the most.

if this is 1st time for you to visit taipei, when you walk out from taipei main station, you will feel like a sotong. you wont like the feeling to carry a heavy luggage and blindly walk to take mrt.

yes, same train. see my example to book train.

2011/2/5 Saturday From < Taipei> To < Hualien>, book Tze-Chiang Limited Express Train Code 1091, train leave taipei main station at 0720, reached hualien at 0925.

2011/2/5 Saturday From < Hualien > To < Taipei >, book Tze-Chiang Limited Express Train Code 1096, train leave hualien at 2030, reached taipei at 2240.

Meaning that although the website stated "Tze-Chiang Limited Express 1091 -- Shulin To Hualien 07:20 09:25 2h 5m "

I will board the train at TAIPEI MAIN STATION at 720am? and not board it at shulin?
