Although China Airlines is Taiwan’s national carrier, many other international airlines provide frequent daily service to Taiwan.

The Taipei Metro, more commonly known as the MRT or formally as the Taipei Rapid Transit System is a rapid transit system serving metropolitan Taipei in Taiwan.

A large number of taxis are available in most major cities. Taxi fares in all major cities are set by the local city government. The meter may not be used for out-of-town or long-distance travel; travelers are advised to confirm the charging method before getting into a taxi. Most drivers do not speak English, so it is a good idea to have hotel personnel write both your destination and your hotel's name and address in Chinese, along with the projected cost of each one-way trip for you.
