The Transportation for iFuzzy2019
1. Getting from the Airport to the Tamkang University
- By Taxi
Taxis are available at the Taoyuan International Airport 24 hours a day, and there are taxi queues outside the arrival halls of both terminals. Make sure you get a taxi from the taxi stand outside, and not with a hawker standing inside the arrival hall. A typical taxi fare from Taoyuan International Airport to Tamsui is around NT $1,000 - 1,500. It takes about one hour to reach the Tamsui Campus from the airport (recommended if you are carrying heavy luggage).
- By MRT
First, find the ticketing stand inside the arrival hall, and by a bus ticket to Taipei Main Station (in Chinese, this station is pronounced "Taibei Chezhan"). This should cost about NT $120 - $160 and take about 45 minutes to an hour. Once you arrive at Main Station, go downstairs and enter the 'Taipei Main Station' MRT station. Take the MRT to Tamsui, which is the final stop on the Red Line (18 stations in total). This should take about 35 minutes. Then, take an R27 or R28 bus (about 10 minutes, NT $15) or a taxi (about 5 minutes, NT $100) from the Tamsui MRT station to the TKU Tamsui Campus.
2. Getting Around Taipei
The Taipei MRT is like a vast arterial system that pumps people in all directions across the sprawling city of Taipei. It allows you to easily access all the major sights and main business and residential areas around Taipei, including the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall and the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall.
3. Getting Around Tamsui
The easiest way to get around Tamsui is by catching buses. In Tamsui, there are a plethora of different shaped and numbered buses that will transport you wherever you want to go. The R27 and R28 will take you to the side entrance and back entrance of the TKU Tamsui Campus. The R26 will take you to the popular tourist destination known as Fisherman's Wharf.
To take the bus, you can either swipe your MRT Easy Card as you get on or off (this varies depending on which bus you take) or insert coins into the coin machine on the bus. If you have a student Easy Card, the bus trips generally cost NT $12. However, if you choose to insert coins, you must pay the full NT $15 bus fare. The buses operate all day, from about 6 am to midnight.
