Anchor point


Taipei Main Station is located in the Zhongzheng District of Taipei City. It is an underground railway station served by the Taiwan Railways Administration, Taiwan High-Speed Railway, and Taipei Metro. It is also the intersection station of the Taipei MRT’s Bannan Line and the Tamsui Xinyi Line. It is not only Taiwan's primary transportation hub, but also the railway station with the largest building scale and traffic volume in Taiwan.

Taipei Station was set up on July 5, 1891. After several relocations and reconstructions, the current station body was opened on September 2, 1989. The Taiwan Railways Administration Headquarter is also located here. With the Taipei Metro and high-speed railway stations, the vast underground street blocks have been formed.

The station front business area gathers businesses and learning institutions near the station. If you connect this area with the Taipei Transit Station, MRT North Gate Station, Airport MRT Taipei Station, Huashan 1914 Creative Park and other "Taipei Station Specific Area-" related facilities, the area can reach 46.31 hectares; it is the largest transportation center in the Greater Taipei area.

    Being our first time in Taipei we were amazed at the size of this station. Do take a moment to admire how big it is. We got lost a couple of times due to confusing signage however that only added to the holiday feel! Helpful staff were at hand.

    Taipei Main Station is always crowded -- the Metro (MRT), High Speed Rail and Taoyuan Airport MRT all go through it. here's also a lot of shopping. Give yourself plenty of time, it can be confusing.

    It is very convenient located - it is next to the Taoyuan airport express station, you can take train to suburb area. Clean and you can also buy some food souvenir for your family and friend easily there and not to mention quite a variety of restaurants

    Station where all connectivity centralized


    Taipei Station is a very busy station where all the public transport interchange located. Airport MRT, train are in one building. Also, underground connected Express bus station and MRT stations such as Taipei Main and Beimen. It is also near to XimenTing area where lots of tourist went. Surrounding area have lots of big shopping malls, Airbnb, hotels, shops and restaurants. Underground Street Mall also under the Taipei Station. It is practically a shopping area as well!!

    Avoid peak times if possible


    The hub of MRT and BUS/TRA/HSR travel in Taipei. Follow the signs and you should be OK. Main Station can get overwhelmingly busy during rush hour so newbies should avoid these times or get swept up in a herd of people buried in their phones scurrying to their exits/platforms.
