Transportation to Taichung

2015年11月5日 星期四 10 comments

        There is always a question from foreign visitors: "How to go to Taichung/Fenjia Night Market from HSR Taichung station". However, the question should be "How to go to Taichung/Fenjia Night Market from HSR Taichung station", which excludes the premise : HSR Taichung Station.


Transportation to Taichung

    Since HSR Taichung station is at southwest corner of Taichung city center, unless your destiny is Sun Moon Lake or Cingjin. HSR Taichung Station is not a good choice if your destiny is Fenjia night market since you pay double~triple the price comparing to bus from Taipei or Taoyuan Airport but save only less one hour. Lets make a comparison:

  • From Taipei
By Bus:
Taipei Bus Station(UBus 1619)->Ciaoma(Taxi)->Fenjia
Cost :NTD 220 + NTD 100= NTD 320
Time: Around 150 minutes
The interval of Bus 1619 is 10~15 minutes

By HSR
Taipei Main Station->HSR Taichung Station(Bus 160)->Fenjia Night Market
Cost: NTD 740
Time 100 minutes

That's a trade off  : would your save 50 minutes by extra NTD 420 ?

  • From Taoyuan Airport
By Bus:
Taoyuan Airport(UBus 1623)->Ciaoma(Taxi)->Fenjia
Cost :NTD 230 + NTD 100= NTD 330
Time: Around 90 minutes
The interval of Bus 1623 is 10~15 minutes

By HSR
Taoyuan Airport(Bus 705)->HSR Taichung Station(Bus 160)->HSR Taichung Station(Bus 160)->Fenjia Night Market
Cost: NTD 30+570=NTD 600
The interval of Bus 705 is 5~15 minutes
Time:20+35+40=95 minutes <not include the time of transfer>

The answer is much clear if you go to Fenjia Night Market by HSR
