    Busy station has artistic touch


    Beimen Station ("North Gate") is an important station on the MRT Green Line (Sungshan-Xindian). It exits onto Tacheng St. The station is decorated in a melange of folk art motifs in a variety of colours. It also has archaeological relics from the Ching Dynasty (1644-1911) and Japanese colonial era (1895-1945) when the area was an arsenal.

    Station has many interesting features


    Beian Station (North Gate ) has many interesting features. It's an MRT stop for the Taipei Lantern Festival. It has an archaeological exhibit from the Qing Dynasty and the Japanese colonial period ( 1895-1945), when this area was an arsenal. Beian is also has an in-town baggage check-in service for the Taoyuan Airport MRT line. Staff are available to assist. It's a big station, if you follow the signs you won't get lost.

    Train station big and very crowded


    As all in this country, this station was big and very crowded besides it is very confusing if you do not speak the language. People barely speak English and it is difficult to get directions since everyone seems to be in a hurry and they are not really willing to help, fortunately we found some nice Taiwanese people along the way who really helped us to get thru the odyssey.
