Taichung Tourism


Taxi / Car rentals


A large number of taxis is available in most major cities. Basically, taxi fares in all major cities are set by the city government itself, but the discrepancy among them is little. Out-of-town or long-distance travels may not apply to meter charge in some cities; travelers are suggested to confirm charging method before getting on a taxi.

The main roads in Taichung

Most drivers do not speak English, so it is a good idea to have hotel personnel write both your destination and your hotel's name and address in Chinese, along with the projected cost of each one-way trip for you.

Car rentals

Visitors with international driving licenses may drive a car in Taiwan. However, for those who are not familiar with the road conditions, it is recommended to rent a car with a driver. Cars can be rented at service counters in major airports, train stations and downtown locations. Some of international hotels also provide car rental services which are convenient to visitors who need just airport pick-up or a journey in a few hours.

Some car rental companies allow customers to return cars at more than just one outlet with additional service charge applied. Most car rental companies offer favorable rental packages, but most rental fees do not include insurances, so it is better to make sure of the company's particular policy before taking a car out.

In Taiwan, cars are driving to the right; drivers and passenger in the front must fasten seatbelts. For car-rental traveling, visitors are advised to familiarize Taiwan's driving regulations. After obtaining legally effective drivers' license, an adventure in Taiwan is ready ahead of you.
