Which airport is there in Taipei?

Taipei is the largest city in Taiwan. This place is known as the economic, political, cultural and tourist center of Taiwan. That's why Taiwanese tourists often do not miss this destination on their trip. The distance from Vietnam's capital Hanoi to Taipei is more than 1,600km as the crow flies. For that reason, from Vietnam, the fastest and most convenient way to get to Taipei is by plane.

Regarding air tickets to Taipei, airlines are operating flights from Vietnam to Taiwan, such as: Vietnam Airlines, EVA Air, Cathay Pacific Airways, Hong Kong Airlines, Vietjet Air, Air Macau, Shenzhen Airlines,... With so many airlines, the choice also becomes more diverse and easier.

If you want to go to Taipei, most passengers choose Taoyuan Airport as their stopover point. Taoyuan Airport is Taiwan's leading international airport, serving more than 45 million passengers each year and being built modernly and advancedly.

From Hanoi, you go to Noi Bai airport as the departure point for Taipei city. Currently, there are two domestic airlines operating direct flights between Hanoi and Taipei: Vietnam Airlines and VietJet Air. In addition, there are some foreign airlines, such as China Airlines, EVA Air, etc.

Airfare from Hanoi to Taipei ranges from 6 million to 54 million VND, depending on the ticket class. A direct flight takes just over 2 hours, while a connecting flight can take up to 20 hours, depending on transit time. Therefore, if you don't have much time, the best way is to fly direct.

From Ho Chi Minh City, the airport that takes you to Taipei is Tan Son Nhat Airport. The distance from Ho Chi Minh City to Taipei is farther than Hanoi, so the flight time is also longer, expected to be 3 hours and 30 minutes with a direct flight. Air tickets from Ho Chi Minh City to Taipei cost 3 million VND per way or more. Passengers can choose airlines such as EVA Air, Vietnam Airlines, China Airlines, VietJet Air, etc.

From Da Nang, Da Nang International Airport takes you to Taipei, with flight times ranging from 2 hours and 35 minutes to 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Some things to note when buying plane tickets to Taipei

To buy air tickets to Taipei (Taiwan), the most popular way today is to book tickets online, which is both quick and convenient. Taiwanese tourists can book air tickets directly on the airline's official website or visit the Air Travel website to search for tours and cheap air tickets for their trip.

Tourists should buy round-trip air tickets to get a more affordable price than buying separate tickets for each leg. To do that, you need to plan your trip in detail to arrange the exact departure and return dates.

If you want to buy cheap air tickets to Taiwan, don't forget to hunt for promotions from airlines. For example, Vietnam Airlines' promotion program—discount airfare for the Vietnam to Northeast Asia route or the Easy Takeoff program—helps you save from 10% to 30% of the ticket price. EVA Air is also one of the airlines that regularly offers big promotions for round-trip Ho Chi Minh City to Taipei air tickets.

The peak tourist season in Taiwan has two periods: from September to November and from February to May. Therefore, at this time, the price of air tickets from Hanoi to Taipei or any flight to Taipei has also increased significantly. If you want to visit Taipei during the above time period, don't forget to book your flight to Taipei at least 1 month before your flight date. You can book tickets as early as September for a trip to Taipei in November or December.

Flight time is also a factor that affects airfare prices. You can choose early morning or late evening flight times if you want to have an economical travel or business trip. However, pay attention to arranging a reasonable time and booking hotels, motels and sightseeing activities accordingly.

How to move from the airport to the city center

Taoyuan Airport is about 40km from Taipei city center. To get to the center, it takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the vehicle. Some ways to move from the airport to the city for you include:

  • Taxi: This is probably the most convenient means of transportation because taxis are always available 24 hours a day, right at the door of Terminal 2 or west of Terminal 1. However, taxi fares will be higher than on other public transportation. If you travel to Taiwan with a group of four people and bulky belongings, traveling by taxi is the most ideal choice.
