Taipei CKS Airport

The CKS Airport is located in the city of Taoyuan, about half and hour to one hour (depending on traffic, rush hour take at least an hour) from Taipei city centre.

In the past couple of years a brand new second terminal was opened in addition to the most definately retro looking terminal #1.

Taiwanese love to travel, and this being an island, by plane is (nearly) the only way to go. Frequent flights connect the country to nearly all places in the planet.

It is no match for the nearby Hong Kong airport, as people either come or go and don't live for days on end on the airport. Few stop over in Taipei on the way to other destinations so don't expect exotic shopping. Duty free sigarettes, touristy items and alcohol are the only products on offer.
