Taipei Taoyuan Airport Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE)

Taoyuan Airport taxi to city

By taxi is a good way to transfer from Taoyuan Airport to downtown, since it is located 40 kilometres west of Taipei, which means an average transfer time of about an hour.

While boarding a taxi in downtown Taipei, don’t make the mistake to ask the driver to take you to the Taipei Airport (Songshan) if you actually mean Taiwan Taoyuan Airport. The international airport is actually about an hour’s drive from Taipei, while Songshan is in downtown Taipei.
