To Taipei Main Station
After check out is done, you need to get ticket to go to Taipei Main Station. That’s
where the City area of Taipei. Head to the Bus Counter located at the basement (not sure is it call basement, but there is a few counters under different bus company.
We took a bus rout map to see which is the fastest and cheaper price. They have brochure available at the counter or I can suggest you ask from the information counter before you get on any rides. (Sorry I miss out taken a picture of the station.)
Get the ticket from Taoyuan Airport to Taipei Main Station. Its cost 125 NTD for each person. Which is about $5.64 sgd.
You can check with the bus person, they will guide or tell you which Q to Q. They have sign for the bus, you can just refer to it or just ask the person.
