Songshan Station 松山火車站

Anchor point


Songshan Station is one of the few historical stations in Taiwan. At the time of the first railroad construction from Keelung to Hsinchu during the years of Emperor Guangxu of the Qing dynasty, Songshan was already a simple ticket kiosk. 

Songshan Station is now a union station of Taiwan Railway and Taipei MRT. The west side of the cylindrical shaped station is the main entrance. Because of its special shape, it attracts many passengers to stop by and take pictures.

    Well located station with plenty of amenities.


    The station has all the amenities most travelers need -- from a staffed information booth (with some English speakers), to convenience stores, to luggage lockers, to baggage service, and ticketing. A shopping mall is above the concourse and track levels. The little store that looks like an old railway coach is fun too.

    Modern train station with shopping mall


    Songshan is one of those districts in Taipei that has become increasingly busy and developed having both an airport and a train station as well as several attractions. The station is fairly newish and modern and is important because apart from trains, there is also an MRT station here and above the station is Citilink Shopping Mall which is quite a nice place to shop and eat although not too large. Access to the MRT station can be through Citylink Mall and also at the entrances on Bade Road and also near to the Ciyou Temple which is just nearby. Raohe Street Night Market is also really close and the MRT station is convenient to get here from other parts of the city.

    Modern Station in a Good Location


    This station is useful if you don't need to go all the way to Taipei Central Station. It is underground, but signs to the street level are well-displayed. There are some shops and dining in the train station center.
