Hi all,

Will be going Taiwan next week.

1) I would like to ask where can I buy train tickets for Hualien in Taipei? I believe Taipei Main station is one of them. But is it possible to buy from SongShan Train station since I am staying near HouShanPi MRT.

If Taipei Main station is the only place I can buy, any direction to the counter?

2) What is the opening hours of the ticketing counter? I will be reaching Taoyuan at 630pm.. and leaving for Hualien the next day.

Thanks!

Thank you Fireworks for the speedy reply.

Still thinking whether to buy from Taipei main Train station or SongShan.

Think will try to arrange a pick up from our hotel to send us to SongShan Train station. From google map, seems walkable but might take 30mins.
