Western Taiwan

Getting there & around

Regular trains run frequently down the coast, connecting all major and minor cities, and there are decent bus services to most smaller towns. The High-Speed Rail (HSR) is now running, but stations are quite far from downtown. Taichung has one airport for both international and domestic services. A small-gauge alpine train (one of only three in the world) does the route from Chiayi to Alishan. In most cities you’ll find scooter and car rental.

The only areas where public transportation is inconvenient are Yushan National Park, the more remote parts of the Alishan National Scenic Area, and Hwy 14 past Puli.
