Took the HSR from Taipei to Taichung and back to Taipei as part of my day trip to Sun Moon Lake. The station is clean and has cafe places such as Starbucks. The trains arrive on time. And there's an outdoor platform where one can catch the setting sun while waiting for the train.

Make sure you check online to try to get the %35 discount. Like I did, IF you miss the time its ok, you just have to pay regular price and the discount cancels. There are alot of trains so you cant go wrong. Just dont miss your scheduled train.

I have used this train service to go from Taichung to Taipei several times. It is punctual, clean and affordable. The stations feel more like a mini airport than a rail station- restaurants, coffee shops etc. This is similar to Eurostar, but without the customs hassle

I am very impressed with the high speed train for their punctual timing of arriving & departing from each city. The inside cabins were clean & neat. U can buy your food at the station before boarding especially at Taipei station, lots of choices to choose from.

Clean, model station. High speed rail station is linked walking distance to xinwuri station. From there can catch the slow train into Taichung downtown station. Very convenient

The station is nice and clean and has everything you will need. There is a good selection of food options and also an outdoor seating area for smokers or people who want to be outside. the bus station is just down stairs so its really convenient.

This was our first time riding the HSR as we were traveling from Taipei to Tainan. The cost was around $45US/person. The train goes up to 175 MPH so traveling from Taipei and Tainan took less than 2 hours. We had reserve seatings so we were able to all sit together. I'm not sure if the whole train has reserved...

A Fantastic operation, professional and service orientated, instructions in english also. We took the MRT from North to South and the High Speed back up, both trips were great. We purchased our tickets at the stations a day ahead of travel, got assigned seats. Enjoy
