LA to Bangkok via Taipei

aiyo, ever since the ex-chairman (only child of the 2nd wife of the founder), the management which was taken over by the children of the 1st wife had not been treating the frontline staff such as the crews very well.

But this wasn’t the case for us in our recent trip last month. As I had read from this forum that many had used the auto gates during their departure from Taoyuan Airport, so we thought that this is now the current practice and made our way to the auto gates. However we were stopped by an airport staff, telling us that the auto gates are not for people like us who are holding foreign passports and directed us to the manned counters. :s11: So ya, our passports all have the departure stamps.

I was also diverted to manual counters at times.

there are 2 queues: one for citizens and one for foreigners. the foreigners queue has 2 types of clearance: e-gate (default) and manned counters. i noticed some foreigners are automatically directed to manned counters by customs officers. i guess certain nationalities cannot use the e-gate. i used the e-gate and got thru' with no fuss.

if use youyou card, nt150 tpe to tms. buy 1 way ticket is nt160. express train from t1 is 35min to tms. another 10 to 15min to tms via green line.

the bus is also efficient, but average 40min to 1hr depending on traffic. nt140 per trip. trains have no traffic to worry about.

not really. muslims tried to use the e-gate but unable to get through. end up the officers have to direct all of them to manned counters. did not see whether they are malaysians or indonesians.

Yeh bus is very near and took ard or less than 40 mins usually and can see many things. But guess repeat visitors like me will take the train next time to see new scenery. But thinking back for such short distance tw charged so much more compared to our sg mrt and buses from changi lol.
