For taoyuan to taichung, would HSR or hire a taxi/driver be a faster/better choice?

HSR only 45mins, you want zhun zhun, buy hsr ticket on the spot then board the coming train.
If have express train even faster since lesser stop.

What I'm saying is you take bus or Hsr not much of a diff because need to take mrt or bus which is about 15-20mins already and take hsr again about 40mins excluding the waiting time which is more or less the same. The only diff is pay 200-300ntd extra for maybe 15-30mins faster?

Anybody drove in Taiwan before? Many people including Taiwanese discouraged foreigners driving in Taiwan saying v dangerous. Other than driving on different sides of the road compared to Singapore, what are other worries? Appreciate any sharing. Thanks in advance.

The thing is I will prefer to take HSR to taichung.
Reason being, at least still have toilet breaks.
For Bus, it's all the way 2.5-3hrs depending on traffic conditions.
Bo bao is sure reach on time.
After 4hours plus seated on the flight, still need to drag so long, literally another part of the time by bus, i give up.

If for me:
Taoyuan airport - airport mrt (easy card) - Taoyuan hsr (can buy on the spot or ask calkel to help buy) - Taichung hsr - taxi to hotel (about 200 ntd).

Hsr ticket, buy on the spot no guarantee got seat. If Calkel help buy, can choose free seating in the last few cabin and any train.
