Only by HSR. Think earliest you reach 8:30 or so.
Is it worth rushing?

I guess they are delay or rescheduled , perhaps is due to their aircraft flying different places then fly back to singapore ...
not like other budget airline, sin to bkk. that aircraft more or less is used to fly this route few times each day ...
For scoot, their sin to tpe to icn, then icn to tpe to sin ...
if icn to tpe is delayed, then your tpe to sin will most likely delayed ...

Multi sector is the word.
Lastly, i realized that SIN-TPE, they use one set of crew, TPE-NRT, another set of crew.
Quite good. Lesser stress for their scooties, can rest more.

The questions he/she asked, so obvious. Perhaps he/she dont even know where Kaohsiung is.

Agree with you. So i pretend those who ask such questions to be noobs in traveling, so as to be nice rather than think they might be trolling.
With google as almighty, so many still do not know how to use it.

Not all the time are airline's fault.
Airports are just getting busier nowadays.
