Can anyone advise on how long it will take if I take the Airport Shuttle to HSR TaoYuan and then from there travel to HSR Taipei? My hotel is at Taipei Main Station, so was thinking which option would be faster?

Thanks!

This section - get the train schedule correctly,or, you might have to wait around if you miss the connection.
If you get to Shifen too late, you might not get to the Waterfall to see anything.
I'd do Taipei by bus>Yeliou by bus>Keelung by train to >Rueifang by train to >Shifen by train to >Rueifang by bus to >Jioufen by bus to >Taipei.
Thanks nuttyazn! I'll do that!

But can I ask how do I go from rueifang to jiu fen and the from jiu fen to taipei??
Is it by the keelung bus as well?

Hi
What time your flight,Are you carrying big luggage?? You staying in City Lake Hotel??
Take the MRT Direct to Domestic Songshan Airport Stop. From there Take KuoKuang bus to TTIA- No Worries.
If you are coming into Taipei from TTIA-Take Kuokuang bus to Songshan Airport stop and MRT to Hotel-Very economical.

Are you coming in for a Trade show-Computex next week??
Or
Are you already back in S'pore?
hi pal, thanks.
i be here till thurs.
so far ive been to danshui, taipei 101, longshan temple, ximending, zhongxiao rd, shilin raohe huaxi and shida night mart
any other places i should not miss out?

It really depends if your connections from TTIA to Taoyuan is quick and you dont have to wait long for the HST.
Frankly the Kuokuang bus to town is about the same time -no hassles since there are many buses to town.

Too bad, Computex next week 1st June is really an exciting show,biggest in Asia .
Donghu-your next stop is a small but localised place to shop and eat
One whole day left, what else do you want to do or see here within Taipei??

I would like to ask if after jiu fen i wan to go to pingxi to light sky lantern is it the same route? which station should i drop off?
From Jioufen you have to return to rueifang and take the Pingshi line to Pingshi to light the Lanterns. Just check the train schedule for your return journey back to Rueifang, then from Rueifang to Taipei.
