还有地鐵也是不一样
他們說的是捷運

高雄捷運,台北捷運和桃園捷運都不一樣喔

Dear Guys,

Please help to confirm.

I am going Taipei on the 28th and travelling directly to Hualien.

It seems that most high speed trains need to be board at Shulin station?

Is it a mistake on my part?

Anyone knows what is the cab fare from taoyuan airport to Shulin station?


Thanks.
their bookin page is misleading for ppl who are using it for the first time. i faced the exact same problem when i was trying to book it few months ago.

refer to this website: https://www.meetmyguide.com/blog/how...ket-in-taiwan/

helped me figure out how to read their schedule table

Between Taipei City and Hualien, you'll need to board a train operated by TRA.

i.e. there will be transfer involved.
Taoyuan Airport -> Taipei Main Station (bus or MRT)
Taipei Main Station -> Hualien
[https://www.railway.gov.tw/en/index.aspx]
English website allows you to search for appropriate train, then look for for helpful forumer to help you book tix

1) FROM - Area = Taipei; Station = Taipei

2) TO - Area = Hualien; Station = <choose accordingly>

Good luck!

Hualien donít have High Speed Rail. Their is the old skool rail (Under Taiwan Railways Administration. The locals call it 台鐵). But still very efficient and timely. And comfortable too. Just slightly slower.

Train from Taipei to Hualien takes about 2 to 3 hours depending on the number of stops. 2 hours is the express service that doesnít stop in between. Heard from the locals that those tickets are usually snapped up very quickly. (PS: There is 1 train service that take 10 hours to reach Hualien. DO NOT BOOK THAT. Unless you are very bored and want to sit there do nothing for 10 hours. I donít know where it goes)

You can book the tickets online. Booking process is somewhat similar to booking THSR but they donít send you email confirmation. So remember to save the page once the booking is confirmed.

At the station itself, it is easier to use the self service machine to collect the tickets. (The counter always got long queue. Donít know why.) Just need to key in your passport number and the booking reference number and youíll be able to collect your tickets.

Not sure leh. Think so. My reference number that time got 6 digit.

Why don't you change the website language? You can change to english.
