How to get from Kaohsiung Airport to City Centre - Taiwan

There are 3 ways getting from Kaohsiung Airport to City Centre which are metro, private airport transfer and taxi. The easiest way is metro. Many attractions can access by metro and light rail. The first train from Kaohsiung Airport is 5.56 a.m. and the last train is 24:02 (weekdays and weekends). I arrived Kaohsiung Airport at 23:00. I chose private airport transfer because I came with my family (had seniors). It took time not more than half an hour for immigration process and picked up the luggages.

Metro (KMRT)

There are 2 main lines which are red and orange line. Kaohsiung Airport is R4 Station (Red line). I stayed at the hotel near Formosa Boulevard Station (O5 / R10). Travelling time was 16 minutes and fare was NT$ 30. Do not forget to check the exit gate of metro because some exits do not have an elevator or escalator.
