Taking the High Speed Rail from Zuoying (Kaohsiung) to Taipei Main Station

Taipei / Kaohsiung . 2016 . Nov 19


This post is part of our Kaohsiung / Taipei Trip Report and Itinerary. Do check out the full itinerary and our reviews here.

Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR) is a high-speed rail line that runs approximately 349.5 km (217 mi), along the west coast of Taiwan, from the national capital Taipei to the southern city of Kaohsiung.


This was not our first time on the HSR. We already had prior experience on the High Speed Rail when we return to Taoyuan International Airport from Taipei City during our Taipei / Hualien Trip.

Save 20% Anytime when you purchase your HSR Ticket from KKday

The price of a standard full fare HSR ticket from Kaohsiung (Zuoying) to Taipei is NT$1490. Discounts are available for senior citizens and children. Although you can get cheaper early bird tickets if you buy your tickets 28 days before your date of travel, these tickets are limited in quantity and are snapped up very fast once they are released online.



We are pleased to inform our readers of the best HSR ticket promotion that you can get online from our Travel partner Kkday. This offer allows you to save 20% off the price of the standard ticket at any time (Booking need to be at least before 18:00 if you plan on departing the next day after your order date).
