How to get to National Tsing Hua University from the CKS international airport


There is no rail connection from the CKS International Airport, so you will need to take a bus or a taxi.  There are two terminals in CKS Airport; you can purchase bus tickets to major cities of Taiwan in the arrival hall of each terminal.  There is also a taxi stand located right outside each arrival hall; most taxi drivers at CKS Airport speak some English or Japanese. 

The website of CKS International Airport (Taipei).


There are several ways to get to National Tsing Hua University from the CKS International Airport (Taipei):


     Taxi: About NT. 1,500 for one cab and 45 minutes from the airport to NTHU.    

      Chartered taxis line up right outside each arrival hall. At terminal 1, the taxi rank is

     on the right of the exit hall, at terminal 2 on the left. You should inform the taxi

      coordinator about the destination (i.e. the city of Hsinchu) and a taxi will be

      assigned to you.   NOTE: Do not go with anyone who asks you inside the arrival hall

      if you need a taxi.  These are not licensed by the airport authority and may charge 

      you a high fee for a long and indirect route.  Use only the licensed taxis in the taxi

      rank outside each terminal; these are reliable.


     It is possible to arrange a taxi to pick you up at the airport at a special price of  

      NT$1,200 for afla-13 participants.  Please contact Mr. Wang directly at the  

      following email address hhhsu@mx.nthu.edu.tw if you are interested.


      Bus: Take the United Highway Bus. It will take you around 2 hours from the airport  

      to Tsing Hua. Purchase a ticket at the ticket counter in the arrival hall.  A one- 

      way trip to the city of Hsinchu costs NT$150.  You will have to transfer at Chungli

      Freeway Service Center to a different bus to Hsinchu.  Mention "Hsinchu" to the

      staff at the transfer station and the staff will notify you when the bus bound for

      Hsinchu arrives. On the second bus, tell the driver you will get off at National Tsing

      Hua University. The bus will stop one block away from the university.
