Taiwan Trains

The island-wide railway network includes a western line, an eastern line, a north line and a south line. The railway network provides a lot of convenience to its passengers, and there are several classes for choice; Economic Class, Fu-Shing Class, Jue-kuan class and Tsi-chiang class. Tourists can have their own choice according to their traveling time, F&B needs and the purpose of taking the train (as tourist to see the sceneries or going fast from one place to another).

There are some small trains at slower speed for certain routes, such as the lines of A-li, Gigi, Ping-shi, and Nei-wan. Tourists who visit Taiwan for the first time should try taking these routes as they pass by the typical Taiwanese sceneries during its journey.

Please be noted that it could be quite difficult to get your train tickets during continual holidays, and therefore, reserving tickets 14 days before departure by phone or through website service is strongly recommended.
