Getting to Taipei

The best airport to fly into Taiwan is Taoyuan International Airport (TPE).

There are a couple of convenient options to get from the airport to the city. These are our recommendations:

1. The Airport MRT runs from 6:00 AM to 11:30 PM daily and is a cheap ($160NTD/$5USD) and easy option that gets you from the airport to Taipei Main Station in 40 minutes (or faster if you catch the express train). Don't worry; Taipei's MRT system is wonderfully simple to navigate, and Google Maps is a familiar way to see the stops and train times.

2. Another convenient option is to call a taxi or Uber. Travel time by car is around 30 minutes and will cost about $1,200NTD/$37USD

Taipei Marriott Hotel

You can book a room at a discounted rate in our hotel block at the Taipei Marriott, which is also the venue for the wedding.

Isabella and Brian, and the wedding party will stay here from 3/11/23 to 3/14/23. This is a luxurious 5-star hotel with beautiful rooms, several delicious restaurants, a rooftop pool, and incredible views of the Taipei skyline. While it is further away from the main tourist spots, this hotel is conveniently surrounded by plenty of shopping and dining options. It is also only an 8-minute walk from an MRT station and multiple bus routes.

You could find cheaper accommodations in Taipei (we have included alternate hotel recommendations below). However, this hotel offers an excellent experience for a fraction of the cost you'd pay for similar quality in the US. Plus, staying here ensures you can party it up with us on the rooftop all night long without worrying about ubering back.

Alternate Hotel Recommendations

We scoped out some hotels on our trip to Taiwan in September to find alternate hotel options. This list is by no means exhaustive, but we hope this can help you make your travel arrangements.

1. Aloft Taipei Zhongshan - This hotel is slightly further away from the main tourist areas but still conveniently located within walking distance of two busy MRT stations. There aren't any formal restaurants in this hotel, as is common in many hotels in Taiwan, but there is a cool pool on the roof, and the Shuangcheng Street Night Market, a very small night market, is one block away for "xiao ye" a.k.a supper.

Brian and Bella, and the wedding party, will be staying here the days leading up to the wedding.

To get to the Taipei Marriott, the 208 bus from Zhongshan Elementary School around the corner pretty much takes you straight to the door of the Taipei Marriott.

2. Eastin Taipei Hotel - For a budget-friendly option, the location of this hotel is about as convenient as it gets! This hotel offers some windowless rooms for under $100 per night. The convenience really can't be overstated - it sits right on top of the East Metro Mall, an underground mall connecting two major MRT stations. This area has tons of malls and shopping options, as well as countless restaurants and cool cafes on the side streets.

To get to the Taipei Marriott you would hop on the Brown Line at Zhongxiao Fuxing, which would take you to the Jiannan Road MRT stop, where you can easily walk the rest of the way to the Taipei Marriott. You could also take the 33 bus route from the Zhongxiao Dunhua stop to the Taipei Marriott.
