Getting to Tourist Attractions in Taiwan

One of the best way to get to tourist attractions in Taiwan is to travel by what is called the "Taiwan Tourist Shuttle". These buses can take you to more remote destinations where the train or HSR don't go like Sun Moon Lake, Alishan, Taroko Gorge, and Lukang. You can catch these buses at both TRA train stations and HSR High-Speed Rail stations. At this moment, there are 42 bus routes around the island and they cover more than 100 popular tourist sites. What's more, prices are reasonable and the buses are modern and confortable.

If you would like to have more information about the Taiwan Tourist Shuttle buses, or if you'd like to see schedules, prices, maps, and a list of the routes, you can visit the Taiwan Tourist Shuttle website.
