For ppl traveling btw taichung and chia yi train station, just take the bus. Very FAST. Bus interval 40 mins and more rides on the weekend. No need to buy tickets in advance. reach then buy so much easier no need to rush for booking time.

ESP for those staying at Fengjia, the bus from Chia yi train station to Chao ma station is only 1.5hr. Cost is TWD170.
Mine was only 1hr 10min.
Then take taxi to Chao ma, TWD100.

Compare HSR 30 mins, but the bus ride also 30 mins to Fengjia, excluding waiting time. If take from Chiayi train station to HSR, the bus also 30 mins.

No need book HSR ticket in advance plus so ex at TWD360 (even early also 20% off only).

HSR Taichung to chiayi is 30min, though expensive but very fast. Can buy on the spot, I buy from chiayi to Taichung. Taxi from Hsr station to fenjia is around 200+ntd.
