Spacious, new futuristic design.
Nov 2019
On one side you see the original train station, which is heavily influenced by Japanese colonial architecture and next to it is a new futuristic and spacious train station where we took our trains. The grounds outside is also very spacious and you can see various modern art and sculptures, spread around. Location is very central, right next to the bus terminal. This station is indeed very well designed.

Beautiful and traditional Icon

Taichung station has kept its looks and flavour even after having their HSR station near it. Great place to take pictures and to hang out as there are alot of restaurants and shops around it.

Christmas Decor for Passengers
Dec 2019 • Family
This year's Christmas Theme is Disney's Tsum-tsum. If you are travelling across provinces via train, you should not miss a stop over at TaiChung Station.
Very spacious since upgrading from the old station. Lots of parking space for bikes.
Must be good a night, too.

Grand civic area
Dec 2019
Taichung Station, in my humble opinion is done more effectively than Taipei Train Station. And that's due to more available space for the train authority to be more creative and more ambitious with their urbanisation and revitalisation of this civic area. It is a nice touch to revamp the original Train Station which is heavily influenced by Japanese colonial architecture, and the new building next door brings the train station to the next century and beyond, with a lot of thought being placed to ensure comfort of passengers and at the same time, improving the traffic flow and safety of the area. You have got to be here to appreciate at how pleasant the civic area here is, and how the older buildings nearby have all being done up to serve the area better. Commendable visit.

Old and new architecture somehow fitting together
Jan 2019
It's really a big contrast between the old main station and the new building. The former Taichung station is a beautiful piece of Japanese-era architecture. Right beside it you find the new, elevated train station. It's a modern building made of glass and concrete but it has also an open character. Especially the wide staircase with the huge dragon fly creates a lovely atmosphere when arriving in Taichung by train. There's more art around on the square in from of the two station buildings – all newly build in the recent past. This makes it not just a place of arriving and leaving the city but also an instagrammable selfie spot.

The old and new station
Nov 2019 • Solo
The old taichung station is still in place for people to take photos. It is a station with history. The new one is a typical modern station though

Nice and clean

You can take a train to go to other cities. There is also different types of transportation outside the train station. They also have buses if you don't want to take a train.

Elegant and functional and brand new!
Aug 2019 • Solo
When I arrived here the first time almost 20 years ago, the train station was a gorgeous, old, Japanese grandmother. Today it is an elegant, young, Taiwanese beauty, connecting trains and busses, and allowing access to businesses, hotels, and shops south and north of the station. Check out the neighborhood and find hundreds of shops and stalls nearby, that offer everything and anything!
