Taipei Songshan Airport to Taoyuan International Airport

Taipei Songshan Airport is a rather newer airport compared to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. This article will help you transfer from Taipei Songshan Airport to Taoyuan International Airport, in case you need to do so.

Songshan Airport, compared to Taoyuan Airport, is smaller but in my opinion, more convenient if you are heading to downtown Taipei. It will only cost TWD 40 and is just a few stations away from Ximen MRT Station, which is where Ximending Shopping District is located.
