The train is very clean and fast. Those station staffs are so polite, with smiling face all the time. The station is clean and there are some local food stores to walk around so I won't feel boring over there. There are some different kinds of food can be choosen (included famous Taiwan Railway bento) and most of them are delicious and the price are fair.

It's very easy to redeem the tickets at the counter on the day. You can choose any high speed train with reserved seats or free seats. But just there might not be seats if you choose to go with free seats if you didn't get up on the first stop. The train is fast and conformable. Will use it again! 😊

It's easy to buy. I can see the time to go to the station to vote as early as possible on the Internet. If you do, you can change to the time you want to board. Cheaper than the official website, but remember to show tickets and passports when entering and leaving the station! The staff are great too.

Very recommendable as the price is around 25% cheaper than the standard fare for locals. Please notice that this is not only for "non-Taiwanese passport holders" but you must also be a tourist who have enter the country within the last 90 days. They will need to see you passport and entry stamp. Which means that if you are holding an ARC (Resident Certificate) then you cannot use. I do have ARC but fortunately is very recent so i still had a valid stamp on my passport so show them :-)

best way to book HSR tickets. You can choose yo have fix seating or free seating area. If you choose free seating area you might not get a seat as others might have taken the seat. Fixed seating might not get you and your friend to seat together during the journey because different people bought at different timing and depending on the occupancy of the train.

Love booking on Klook! The entire process is super easy and self-explanatory. No tutorial required. Once you get the voucher, go to the station cashier to assign seats or just get an un-reserve seats, what they called free seating here. Super convenient. Trains come almost constantly and always clean and on time. Fabulous way to commute between cities and see Taiwan.
