The various trains of Taiwan’s round-island railway network connect cities big and small, and provide passengers with safe and comfortable train services. Trains are classified into local trains, Fu-hsing, Chu-kuang, and Tze-chiang. Passengers can choose among them based on journey time, costs, and travel purposes. Although the trains of Taiwan Railways are not as fast and time-saving as the THSR trains, ticket prices are only about half and therefore are very popular among backpackers and railway fans.
Passengers can book tickets by phone or online 14 days in advance. During long holidays in Taiwan, you are recommended to book tickets in advance.
