Taipei is a rapidly developing city, which has quickly become one of Asia’s most popular destinations. In Taipei City, you’ll find a mix of the modern and traditional, like some of the tallest buildings in the world and a rich cultural heritage with Chinese and Japanese influences.
To explore all that, you first need to make your way from Taoyuan Airport to Taipei City centre. There are multiple transportation options to do so, so you can choose the one that best matches your needs. If you want the most convenient and reliable option, you can pre-book an airport taxi, which for approximately €42 (TWD 1,300) will take you directly to your destination in about 50 minutes. A cheaper – although not the fastest option is to take the bus, which costs €4 (TWD 125) per single ticket. If you want both a cheap and fast option, you can take the Taoyuan metro, which can take you to Taipei City in about 36 minutes for €4.80 (TWD 150) but be prepared for large crowds, especially during peak hours.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Taipei at the same price as a regular taxi.
