Want to ask how to go to hualien from Taoyuan airport?

I research and found that it's better to make my way to Taipei Main Station and buy tickets from there because there are more choices (i.e. transport)?

Because I will be reaching Taoyuan airport at around 5+am and I have booked a hotel at hualien checked in time 3pm, so I guess the best option will be by bus to TMS? Then train to hualien. Not sure which train to take though. Will I be able to buy ticket on the day (21 May) itself?
google maps recommended routes: https://www.google.com.sg/maps/dir/T...2!2d23.9929463

Take the fast trains like puyuma, zhiqiang. Expects the journey to take around 4 hrs.

Saw the documentary few days back where they interviewed the real woman in the show. She can really see and talk to ghosts!
索非亞!

仙姑!But now converted to Muslim.
Lastly, in private she's the first female baseball judge from Taiwan.
Quite accomplished.

U will literally purge whatever 寒 in you. But remember to wipe dry after that. Not supposed to wash with soap after soaking.
Might be bad for you. Soap up only before you dip, not after the hotspring.
too late... shower + soap and back to sg for 2 weeks liao...

For weekends and unknown public holidays, try not to be caught out.
A holiday is for relaxing not to get it screwed up and have your partner kpkb says why no buy in advance etc.

That is why i offer to buy tickets for others.
And try deliver to them. Make sure they are not caught out of situation.
Book hotels in Hualien, last min cannot go due to tix?
Worth it?
Cancel hotel in hualien, then wanna book back TPE ones, found it expensive ddue to last min booking?
根本不划算。怎麼算都不值得。

No more early bird liao.
All early birds flew away.
But from machine is more expensive that buying at station.
Chances of double booking is there from machine.
