Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport is an international airport serving Taipei and northern Taiwan. Located about 40 km west of Taipei in Dayuan District, Taoyuan, the airport is Taiwan's largest and busiest airport.
The airport is very clean and well maintained; prior to arriving at the Taoyuan International Airport, I booked my unlimited Wi-Fi router via Klooktravel for an affordable internet and stay connected while on travel, you claim it inside the airport, just look for Wi-Fi Rental Kiosk.

The new airport is a far cry from what it used to be, with lively shops, quaint lounges and a live band to keep you entertained while you wait for boarding.
And at arrival, I was relieved that the dreaded harassment from taxi drivers is no longer a thing.
‼️ A new rule forbids taking selfie sticks and tripods into the airport. While you can bring them into arrival, they will not pass the security check at departure. Be prepared to check-in your expensive gear, or you'll end up having to abandon it 😢
👍 Taxis from the airport are always overpriced, and even the information counter will be completely unhelpful.
Here are 2 budget-friendly alternatives to consider:
1️⃣ Book an airport transfer to your hotel with KLOOK. It's half the price of a Grab. (Note: you need to book it at least 3 hours before pick-up time). ❤️ If you're new to KLOOK, you can use my referral code D7VCLL when you register to get a sign up bonus ❤️✌️
2️⃣ Ride the Kura Kura bus (only for major tourist destinations). While it cannot enter the airport, its nearest stop is the T-Galleria, which is located at less than a 5 minute ride. After that, 5USD will buy you a day pass that could take you all the way to Ubud. Plus, this bus is so fun to ride.
