Travel & Transportation

Travel by Air

There are two international airports in Taiwan: Taoyuan International Airport (located about 40km from Taipei City) and Kaohsiung International Airport. These airports offer direct flight service to and from most major cities, making it easy to reach Taiwan from anywhere in the world. Most international flights are served at Taoyuan Airport, including direct service from San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. Bus service is available from TaoYuan International Airport to Taipei as well as rental cars and taxi service. Regional service accounts for most of the direct international flights at Kaohsiung Airport.

Taipei Songshan Airport and Taichung Airport also offer international charter flight service.

Taipei Metro

The Taipei Metro (Taipei Rapid Transit System) is available between the Taipei Songshan Airport, most hotels and the Convention Center.

The Taipei International Convention Center

The Taipei International Convention Center (TICC) is situated in the foothills of eastern Taipei's Hsin-yi District, an area where the modern face of Taipei shines with glass and steel skyscrapers, one of the tallest buildings in the world, wide boulevards, and the Taipei World Trade Center complex. As the political, economic, and cultural center of Taipei, the district houses many landmark buildings, including the Taipei City Hall, Taipei City Council, National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, and Taipei 101.

The TICC is accessible by public transportation including several bus lines and the Taipei Metro (MRT). Detailed directions can be found on the convention center's website (Flash).
