After using UK trains for many years my expectations of train travel are extremely low. The high speed trains in Taiwan are excellent! Quick, reliable, WiFi, snacks, pleasant conductors! It’s a different world. Definitely worth using for long journies.

I am pretty sure none of the US commuter trains offer news papers, cookie or nuts, coffee, tea, water, apple juice. Clean, comfortable, foot rest, wi fi, bathroom, vending they have it all but a hot meal. Inexpensive and fast, great way to get from...More

I remember before the HSR was put in and how long the bus rom Taipei to Taichung took. Love when the speed scrolls across the reader. The new train link to the airport makes it that much more convenient.

My son and I went from Taipei to Chiayi and back on the HSR and wow, it was so quick and smooth. We saved so much time by going this way, especially since our trip was short. The speed of the train went up close...More

The high speed rail is awesome due to its warp speeds! You can get from Taipei to Kaohsiung in only 1.5 hours which is incredible! The seats even in business class are not the most brightest and look as if they really could use a...More

The MRT (new airport rail line, opened in 2017) is one's best option, as it avoids possible traffic delays and is environmentally friendly. At Taipei's 'Main' railway station as it is named, one can easily connect to... More
