  • Locker at Train Station/HSR/MRT Station
         Some railway stations provide lockers. If you will go to  Taipei Main Station, Taichung Station, Koahsiung Station  and come back in a few hours, the locker could be a good choice. However, you should be aware of the problems. The price of lockers is expensive comparing with other storage service. The locker price is on 3-hour base. It count every 3 hour.  If you choose a NTD 50 locker and come back after 10 hours, it counts 4 time and you need to pay NTD 200.
Lockers at Taipei Main Station
         Another problem with the lockers located at railway station is the number. There are over hundreds of  lockers in Taipei Main station(including HSR/MRT TMS). But that's not the case in other stations. There are around 30 lockers in major  stations and around 10 big locker that can fit 28 inch luggage. You may need a backup plan if the lockers if full.

*Tips for using luggage storage center
         The Taipei Railway Station Baggage is cheap and convenient for travelers.  Here are some tips  for using luggage storage center  according to my traveling experience around Taiwan.

Taipei Railway Station Baggage Center  
Taipei Railway Station
         The Taipei Railway Station Baggage Center is not located in Taipei Main Station. It is 50m east of the main building. You can go to the center from East 3 Gate or East 1 Gate of the main building. Taipei Railway Station is the most convenient station in Taipei. There are one railway line, one HSR line, 2 MRT lines and one bus center here. Most of time,the baggage center is full because of its convenience. You can use the storage in the next stations, Wanhua Railway Station or Songshan Railway Station. The train to Wanhua and Sonshan Station is only 5~10 minutes. Please make a phone call before you go to the Taipei Railway Station Baggage Center. Tel(02)23141223. There are also some attractions near Wanhua Station & Songshan Station.
        Wanhua Station :Longshan Temple, Huahsi Night Market
        Songshan Station: Raohe night market, Wufenpu, Rainbow bridge.

 Pinxi Railway Line
      Because the interval of Pinxi Railway Line is about 1 hour and the train is always crowded , it is difficult to move with your luggage. Therefore, one-day trip is much convenient. If you have a two-day trip and will stay one night at Jiufen, you can leave your luggage at Luggage Center of Taipei Railway Station/ Songshan Railway Station. Just bring a small backpack with you.

  • Visitor Centers
      Tourism Bureau provides lots visitor centers in major attractions and transportation stations. You can ask for help if you want to leave your luggage for a while. However, most visitor centers close around 5:30 pm. Please remember to retrieve your luggage within service hour. You should also keep in mind that luggage storage serve is not a regular service for a visit center. They can reject to help  you. Even they help your but don't have responsibility to keep the safety of your luggage.

        The first choice of  luggage storage for a foreign traveler may be the lockers or storage service center in a transportation. However, there are lots problems if you want to use it.  You need to search and confirm the information about whether there is locker or storage service in a transportation one by one in advance. You need to find the location in a jumbo station.You need to bu lucky enough that the locker or storage service is not full. You need to pray that your luggage can fit the storage space. You need to come no early and no late that the service hour. You need to worry that your battery volume will be enough to support your to the next destination. All of the problems mentioned have happened to me and became my nightmare when I travel around the world.

        lalalocker  is a new business model.  You can leave your luggage at cafes, hotels,bookstores, bars. Its price is on daily base. NTD 100 for big luggage with the longest side more than 45 cm and NTD 50 for small luggage.  For a foreign traveler, the best advantage of lalalocker is it increases the certainty of your trip. You can book in advance. You can find the location easily by google maps as well. You don't need to worry the size of  the lockers. You can also enjoy your trip without worrying the service hour.

        You may need to repack your luggage. But it is embarrassing to repack your luggage in open space with lots passengers walking by, especially with underwear inside. You may also  hope that you can have a place to take a rest with delicious drink or food if there are a few hours for your train or bus to go.
       lalalocker also help your trip in additional to luggage storage service. lalalockerr partners also play as a traveling information center.  You can get extra free service at the lalalocker stores, e.g. transportation and attractions information,  battery charging, WiFi., which are important issues to your itinerary. The service can make your trip more efficient and smoothly.
Storage space in one of lalalocker store.
        Lots partners of lalalocker are feature stores, including local restaurants, cafe, tea house, and etc. It means that you can have more fun at the luggage storage center. Luggage storage center is not only an place to leave your luggage. In additional to luggage storage service, you can also enjoy the service of the shop.
