Airport mrt to tms mrt need to walk further.

Need to walk to ximen station is far is what u meant ah?

Fastest, possibly the Taoyuan Metro.


Take the taoyuan metro express train , about 35min to tms ...
If take kuo guang bus is about 50+ min ...

Price wise not that big hor? As in im ok with bus or metro express, just want to see which one is more convenient for me like, for eg, no need squeeze or cheong for seats kind.

And taoyuan metro is at terminal 1 hor? :)

Need to walk to TMS station to get to metro then to ximen is troublesome.

Bus seats are fine, no standing anyway. Metro too.

Taoyuan metro is at T1 and T2.

aiyo

if u wanna go ximen via taoyuan metro, when u alight at taipei, dun follow the crowd and go towards the exit to taipei main station

u go to the other exit at the opp direction and go to beimen station (green line), beimen is nearer and it is also one stop away from ximen station.
it is also less crowded and u just have to follow the sign.

T1 and T2 both got taoyuan metro, if only one terminal have, tw ppl sure kpkb since it is gonna be troublesome for those using T2

is green line faster than blue line (bannan) to ximen? I always take the blue line.

upon looking up google maps, it is indeed closer to ximen using ur direction. thanks!
