Taiwan Taoyuan Airport Train

5 March 2017

The boring photos continue

Arriving at Taoyuan airport and getting into Taipei

Surely the most boring start to one of my long winded things ever.
Update 3 on day 1 and I am in my Taipei hotel, and its still only 4pm in the afternoon, which means there may be a record breaking update 4, hopefully with some photos of things other than planes and hotel rooms.

My flight was again, 100% full, a smaller plane, but I am certainly not used to these full planes, Singapore Air is making squillions. However unlike the previous flight it was comfortable and everyone went to sleep and no one was obviously dying of any illness that I could discern. All good news.
Even better was the excellent breakfast they served, which was like the Tim Ho Wan slimy rice cake things with mushrooms inside served with a chilli sauce. The best thing I have ever eaten on a plane I think.
I also did a full lap of the metal tube, I was the only non full blooded asian on board, in economy at least, I dare not breach the curtain. So as the only quasi round eye, I was pleased, and small children looked at me suspiciously. Of course by now look I like young Einstein, an observation I have also made on previous flights.

Once off the plane, I had to get money, get a sim card, and get the new metro line into the city. It started full operations about a week ago. It did not collapse. It has been over 10 years in the making, and the views are impressive, parts of it are very elevated, just tempting future earthquakes.

Unfortunately, once I got off I exited the wrong side of the station, which is one of my main traditions, and spent an hour walking to find my room, which is excellent and has free snacks. I am eating free doritos now, because they are free. Also the internet is excellent. I am tired as tired can be so this is all probably nonsensical and lacking in any kind of humor.
That should be the last of the procedural retelling of facts, the next post later this evening will have actual photos of things other than planes, trains, airports and hotel rooms.

Yep, its the Taoyuan airport, which is where the main airport for Taipei is located. I like it a lot, its a huge square that takes over an hour to walk around, I will do that when I fly out because I am a fool.


Taiwan-Taoyuan Airport-Train - Yep, its the inside of the new metro, much like the others, but shinier, and goes higher into the sky between buildings.

Yep, its my hotel room, located near the main station, City Inn III, its right near City Inn II and across the road from City Inn I, I previously stayed in City Inn Taichung, which was unnumbered, but also excellent.
