Travel from Taichung to Taipei by bus

In Northern Taiwan lies the country’s capital of Taipei. Being the country’s beating heart, it’s one of its most popular destinations. It has everything that a traveler would want. You can visit cultural sites like the National Palace Museum and National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, pray at holy spaces like Lungshan Temple, bask in the grandeur of nature at Yangmingshan National Park, and shop around Shi-men Ting and the Shi Lin Night Market.

Taipei, and like most areas in Taiwan, has a subtropical climate, so the best times to visit the city are the months of October and November when the weather is pleasant, comfortable, and dry. The winter months of December to February are also great times for those on a tight budget to visit the city because it’s considered to be the low season, hence prices for a variety of things drop.

Getting around Taipei is relatively easy, especially with its MRT system that covers 107 stations. The bus lines can get you not just between various places in the city, but also outside, so it’s your best way to get around the city. Taxis are also available here.
