The high speed train connects Hsinchu to Taipei.The Hsinchu stop is in Jubei. From Hsinchu there are connecting buses to THSR station .Super efficient ! You can stand if there are no seats,reaches Taipei in 30 mts.
Kwai kwai & Man Man For a Train ride And Others
....You can have your choices riding on there train..."Kwai kwai" for faster and easier but only for main stations like Hsinchu ,Jhungli, Taoyuan, Taichung, and Taipei.And for "man man " cheaper compare to kwai kwai but have to stop every sub stations and it means slower....I was amazed riding on there train here compare to the Philippines where i grow up....not overloaded and people around are more disciplined...
Yellow cab are rare in towns....not all natives can speak english so you must know how to speak a little mandarin or find an english driver...not to worry about staying or going around Hsinchu i really find it safer here compare to other country ...walking around is quite secured. Its better to have a contact with your ride so you can go out anytime you want....
Scooters are everywhere just be alert everytime you're walking around.
Buses around here are very cheap too...well, funny because you can recognized the driver, everytime i used to ride for a bus i only saw 1 or 2 faces of them.Same driver everyday especially going to our town Jhubei "Chupei as pronounced"
Dont ever lost your ticket! im bit a hard headed gal ive been scorned for most of the time rolling my tickets and sometime forgot to return it back after a ride...
Yeah you are required to return your ticket after a ride. So dont forget your ticket!
