How to get to Taipei Main Station from Taoyuan Airport?
I took a Kuo Kuan Bus to Taipei Main Station which cost me NTD125. The journey around 1 hour. The bus is every 10 minutes so don't worry. Everything is very proper , systematic and convenient in Taiwan.
If you are not a bus type , you can take Cab but it will cost you around NTD900 - 1,200. Your choice!

Be prepared to walk for at least 2 hours to witness the magical and awesome view at Mukumugi Valley
You can swim and play around with tame fish in this crystal clear non polluted water and enjoy the fresh breeze air.
I went to Hualien with limited mandarin skills. Just a basic one and the rest was all body language and yet we understand each other well. Just be polite and don't forget that smiley face. Respect people and people will treat you well too.
I did lots of walking and climbing the hills and stairs in Hualien so when I reached Taipei my weak leg almost make me fall and collapsed. WTH!
