  • Transportation: In Taiwan, it is easy to reach everywhere by local train. Many towns have a local train stop that will allow you to travel between towns and cities. Also, The High Speed Rail (HSR) is served on the west Taiwan, which runs on its own track from Taipei to Kaohsiung, independent from local trains. However, in some towns, people usually ride the bicycle, scooter and drive a car in the daily life. Bus is also available in some county.
