How to get to the Hotel? – Transportation

Photo taken from Taoyuan International Airport

Well, this would be depend on where are you coming down from. Some people arrive in Kaohsiung and depart from Taipei and some people after arrive Taipei, they go to Kaohsiung first then come back to Taipei for few days then return flight back home.

If you are arrive in TaoYuan International Airport, you can catch the buses shown in my photo above which is called Kuo-Kuang Bus. This bus is terminate in the Taipei Main Station but if you are going to this Yomi Hotel, you need to get off at the Guo-Bing hotel stop. It is just 3 minutes walk from the Guo-Bing stop to the Yomi hotel.

But if you are coming down from the South Taiwan such as Kaohsiung, you need to catch the high speed train to get to the Taipei Main Station, then catch the MRT to ShuangLian Station.

From MRT Shuanglian Station to the Hotel would be at Exit 1 take a right turn approximately 4 minute walk.

Please Note:

  • Taipei Main Station to Hotel is 5~8 minutes by taxi.
  • Taipei Songshan Airport to Hotel will take approximately 10 minutes by taxi.
  • Taoyuan International Airport to Hotel would take the 1819 Kuo-Kuang Motor Transport or 1961 CitiAir Bus. The ride takes about 40 minutes. Bus stops at (Ambassador Hotel) approximately 3 minute walk.
  • Hotel to World Trade Exhibition Center in Xinyi District or Nankang Exhibition Center would be approximately 25~30 minutes by taxi.
