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.
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.
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.
