“Nice station with some interesting shops”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

I would recommend taking an ordinary train from the adjoining Xinwuri station into Taichung, rather than the buses. I ended up on a previous trip being dropped in the middle of nowehere, even though the front of the bus indictaed it was going to the train station!
Some nice quirky shops in the station, so if you've got time, browse a little.

Great new station, getting a connection is a bit of a pain, but overall a great piece of engineering

“fast but worn”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

the terminals are new but the trains are old. and honestly, I don't like the idea of numerous elderly who bought standing tickets standing around when there are so many youngsters seated but refuse to give up their seats because they bought tickets with seats.

“Travel with THSR is as easy as 1,2,3.”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

THSR is punctual and always on time. Spacious and comfortable, most importantly save travelling time. Must try the Taichung HSR lunch box. Cheap and good. There is limited lunch boxes for sales onboard during lunch hour and always sold out. Ticket purchase is quick and easy with the vending machine for unreserved and reserved seats. In fact, there is no need to book online if your travel schedule is flexible like mine. Can be purchased with credit card at the vending machine too. To save money, it is good to travel unreserved seats (car 10 - 12) but could be crowded and without seats during peak hours. Luggage compartments are available in HSR either at the end or front of each car. Luggage also can be put in front of your seat as it is very spacious.
