Getting Around the Airports

Travel Information to Taiwan

Taiwan has three main international airports scattering in the north, middle, and south. These airports include Taipei Songshan Airport (TSA), Taoyuan International Airport (TPE), and Kaohsiung International Airport (KHH). Although Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages, the site of 2018 SEALS Conference, is located in the southern city, Kaohsiung, and hence flying to KHH may be ideal, it is likely that Taoyuan and Taipei will be your destination in Taiwan, because TPE and TSA have more connections to flights from all over the world. 

 

For those flying to Taipei, you will need to take Taiwan High Speed Railway (THSR) to get to Kaohsiung, going from northern Taiwan to south.  This trip takes approximately 2 hours.
