Domestic Airlines

Taiwan's domestic airlines industry is quite active with busy routes serving major cities; flying is almost as common as taking long-distance buses, and flights are always fully booked during holidays. As a result, prior reservations are advised. Most travel agencies handle reservations and ticketing on behalf of airlines.

Personal identification is required when checking in for flights. (ID cards for Taiwan citizens, passports for foreigners.)

Domestic Airport & Flight Information

Railway

The island-wide railway network, including the western line, the eastern line, the north link line, and the south link line, provides convenient travel in a number of train classes: economy, Fu-Hsing, Chu-Kuang and Tze-Chiang. Travels can choose the class of train they want according to their schedule and budget. Small narrow-gauge trains operate on (mainly tourist) branch lines: Alishan, Jiji, Pingxi, and Neiwan. These trains give visitors a chance to see the caried scenery of Taiwan close-up as they travel around the island.

It is especially difficult to get the train tickets during long holiday periods, so reserving tickets 14 days before departure, by phone or by website, is strongly recommended.

Local Transportation

Taxi

A large number of taxis are available in most major cities. Basically, taxi fares in all major cities are set by the local city government itself, and there are few variations. The meter may not be used for out-of-town or long-distance travel; travelers are advised to confirm the charging method before getting in a taxi.

For more information, please see Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport - Taxi, Kaohsiung International Airport - Taxi.

Notes: Most drivers do not speak English, for your own convenience, when taking a taxi in Taiwan, it is advisable to prepare a note with your destination, including both your hotel's name and address written in Chinese, along with the projected cost of each one-way trip.
