How to get there
Depending Where You are Heading
Taoyuan Airport MRT (A1) Purple line
Taipei Main Station is the main transportation hub of Taiwan connecting all the trains that goes around Taipei and Northern Taipei.
If you're in the airport and you're going to Taipei, I suggest you take the Aiport Mrt which is also the purple transit. It is the fastest way to Taipei, even faster than the blue line train because it only stop in several stops. Signs are easy to follow, all you have to do is follow the violet logo next to it's name to know you're following the Purple line. It will take you to Taipei in 30-45minutes.
Want to check in early? This booth is use for an early check-in of several airlines. So if you are running late then better find yourself one of these. (we're pretending that we are using it, we just arrived!)
In case you need this, here is the map of their train stations. If you can see on the bottom right, the Maokong Gondola is also a part of it.
Part of this huge underground Taipei Main Station is the Taipei City Mall, which also have a connecting entrance to Taipei Main station and also have an underground mall.
You see all these cuties? It's free of charge seeing, taking pictures and sometimes seeing them personally. WOW!
Another thing is this Locker, tho It's kinda hard to know how to use it unless you ask for help but this might be a great help for travelers that don't want to carry their things around. They have a lot of these everywhere and in every station.
There is actually a lot more things to see and do in Taipei Main Station. They have food stalls, Goodies stores, grocery stores, 7/11, exhibits, etc. So when you have time to wander around, just do it!
