continued from here….
The fastest and easiest way to get to Kaohsiung from Taipei is by High Speed Rail because
1. you’ll reach in 1 hour 36 minutes
2. you can purchase the ticket online http://www.thsrc.com.tw/en/
3. HSR station is inside Taipei Railway Station which is only 5 minutes walk from City Inn :D bonus point
Well, great deal usually cost you more. Ticket price is at NTD1200 one way. We bought it 2 weeks prior the departure date and collected it a day before at the kiosk. All you need is the print out of the confirmation number and your passport.
Traveling at maximum speed 297km/h.
Outside food and drinks are allowed but because we don’t know that and so happen “bian dan” sold out, so “boh bian” have to tahan a bit with orange cake and green tea which cost NTD450.
Reached Zuo Ying HSR station at approximately 2:18pm.
This is our 2nd pit-stop. Live House homestay. Priced at NTD1980 per night.
The living hall… computer provided.
Look nice, comfortable and decent right… Wait till you see this
The room is actually one of the unit inside the above building. There are 4 units of it. The room is clean but doesn’t really like the environment because the unit opposite our room is converted to a store room… and imagine!!! Location wise, convenient because it is only few minutes walk to MRT station. Ok, if you dun mind…..
To get there: From Zuoying HSR station, go to Zuoying MRT station (R16) and alight at Central Park station (R9). Follow exit 2. The building is just few minutes walk opposite the exit at right.
