TheTaiwan High Speed Rail is a high speed railway train that runs up to 300 km/h. As fast as a plane. It can reach Kaohsiung Zuoying station in 90 minutes, compare to normal railway train that needs 4.5 hours reach.
I pre-book my HSR tickets online 2-3 days before I leave Malaysia. HSR tickets are as expensive as an aireoplane tickets. It cost me NT$1490 1 way trip to Kaohsiung Zuoying station. I booked the 6.36am (90 minutes) tickets which have 35% off which is $965. I paid my tickets online via credit card and they give me extra 5% discount which makes my ticket price is only $915.
Reach Kaohsiung Zuoying Station after 2 hours later. The ticket counter was so pack!
We agree as it is just several bucks extra. We waited for half hour and they drive us to Kenting. The car consist around 7 person.
