What is the cheapest and best way to get fromt he CKS International Airport to the city Taipei Railway station?

Is there a Direct Bus or a Train going there from the Airport???
and anyone know the price or the trasportation?

Cheers!

Hey would like to ask...is Friday considered weekend rate at Neijiang hotel?

Is it totally necessary to pre-book train tickets in advance? I intend to travel to Hualian on a Thursday.

many thanks for the replies.

Oh no, torrential rain expected from 22-25oct

盧碧恐放慢腳步,豪雨威脅延長至週日
更新日期:2009/10/20 18:35


中央氣象局表示:根據最

新的氣象資料研判,盧碧颱風接近呂宋島之後,速

度可能會放慢,因此未來對台灣地區的豪雨威脅,將延長到週日(25號),22號起,一連四天,北部,東半部及南部地區都應該嚴防東北季風與颱風外圍環流
帶來的共伴豪雨威脅。北部及東半部山區應防範超大豪雨,尤其是宜蘭、花蓮一帶,需提防日雨量五百毫米的劇烈降水。盧碧颱風未來有朝西南西
偏轉的趨勢,但因為暴風半徑已經擴大為300公里,因此,是否發佈海上颱風警報,明天將是關鍵。(彭群弼報導)


中度颱風盧碧下午的位置移動到距離台灣鵝鑾鼻東方約950公里的海面,持續以每小時16公里的速度朝西轉西南西方向前進。太平洋高壓勢力決定了盧碧的動向,研判週三開始,隨著高壓勢力的增強,盧碧的速度會加快,位置也會因為太平洋高壓勢力而略微偏南。大致上的看法沒有太大變化。不過,氣象局表示:根據週二下午最新的數值模擬資料出爐之後卻顯示:太平洋高壓勢力週四之後會迅速減弱,導致盧碧颱風,通過呂宋島北方陸地時,速度會放慢,推估時速可能剩下八公里左右,只有目前速度的一半!只要移動速度放慢,豪雨威脅的時間就會延長!

預報員李湘源表示:根據最新的預測路徑,盧碧的外圍環流,在盧碧通過呂宋島陸地這段期間,會與屆時從北方南下的東北季風所帶來的冷空氣,在東北部近海產生共伴效應,產生的豪雨威脅,不僅僅22~24號最明顯,甚至會延長到這個週日:25號,換言之共伴豪雨威脅的時間將延長一天,降雨緩和要等到下週一。從22號到25號,一連四天,包括北部,東半部,南部地區都要慎防豪雨,特別是宜蘭、花蓮山區要防範超大豪雨。降雨時間延長,災害發生的機會救會增加。民眾要特別注意。


至於是否發佈海上警報?李湘源說:盧碧的路徑未來有機會偏南,威脅有機會可以減少,但是盧碧下的暴風半徑卻又擴大為三百公里,多少抵銷了偏南的效果,因此,是否發佈,還需要觀察週三的變化。
