Flying to Taiwan
Taipei Taoyuan International Airport (airport code: TPE)
can be accessed via over 190 non-stop and direct flights from 56 major cities throughout the world.
Less frequent flights also connect several capital cities in eastern Asia with the Taipei Songshan Airport (airport code: TSA), which locates inside Taipei City and is conveniently served by the Taipei Metro subway system.
The airport closest to the venue is the Kaohsiung International Airport (airport code: KHH), which is connected to the Kaohsiung downtown by the Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corp (KRTC) subway. However, fewer flights are operated to this airport.
