Love how it saves my time in traveling between Taipei and Kaohsiung. Considering all aspects (WiFi, food service, restroom, cleaners, spacious seats), this is definitely a great transportion option to go for. Just wish that they will lower the ticket price soon...

We took the HSR from Nangan to Sun Moon Lake. The ticket window staff were very helpful (we do not speak Chinese). The trains are very clean. The whole trip was easy to navigate.

Yes, they do! You can buy a ticket online and pick it up at any 7-11 or other mini marts around the area.
