From Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport to Taipei

Once your flight lands in Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, you would have several ways to go  to Taipei conveniently. You may get full information from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport official website. What follows are two suggested ways of transportation from the airport to your hotel or National Taiwan University (NTU).  Some hotels also provide pick-up services at the airport. Please check with your hotel directly.

By Bus

There are frequent bus services between Taoyuan International Airport and important destinations around Taipei. Buses can be taken from the Arrival Passenger Reception Areas of both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 at the airport. Once you are in Taipei city, you may then take either a taxi or the Metro (MRT) to your destination. Some buses have a stop at Howard Plaza Hotel (one of the suggested hotels on the accommodation page of DLT 2012), from there you can take a taxi to your hotel or National Taiwan University. Taxis in Taipei are relatively inexpensive.  During the late night-early morning period, a 20% surcharge is imposed for taxi fares. For MRT, the closest exit to National Taiwan University is the Gongguan Station.

By Taxi

A faster but more expensive way to get to your hotel or NTU is by taxi. Airport taxis charge according to the meter plus a 50% surcharge (highway tolls not included). Taxis are available at Taoyuan Airport around the clock. Typical fare from the airport to Taipei city is around 1,200 TWD.

From Hotel to Barry Lam Hall of NTU:

As the following map shows, the Howard International House (Labeled B)  and the Leader Hotel (labeled C) are both a short walk (approx. 10-15 minutes) from the conference location (labeled A). Please refer to (map) for a more detailed  instruction of getting to Barry Lam Hall from the two hotels. The MRT Gongguan station is very close to the Leader Hotel.

The YoXing Regency is near by the metro (MRT) Guting station. From this hotel, you may either take MRT to Gongguan Station first and then walk to the venue, or simply take a taxi to the conference location. (MRT Gongguan station is right in front of Leader Hotel.)

From the Howard Plaza Hotel and the Far Eastern Plaza, the most convenient way to reach NTU is by taxi.
