Cheap flight tickets to Taiwan

Cheap flights to Taiwan

Taiwan is an impressive destination in terms of safety, convenience, and infrastructures. While it is common for most cheap flights to Taiwan to take you to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei, there are other airports that service Taiwan flights coming in from other countries. There’s the Kaohsiung International Airport, the Taichung International Airport, and the Tainan Airport, which was allowed to service international flights in 2011. Though not common, some Taiwan flights also touchdown in Songshan Airport in Taipei.

Taipei, being Taiwan’s capital, is the busiest city in the country. It’s pretty easy to navigate the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. With restaurants, money exchange and mobile charging facilities, WiFi rental (and even free WiFi within airport premises!), lounges, and a station that connects to the city’s rapid transit subway or MRT, everything you need for hassle-free travel is there. The same could be said for the international airports in Kaohsiung and Taichung.

Why plan a trip to Taiwan

There are many reasons to book air tickets to Taiwan. Let’s begin with its capital, Taipei. Here, you’ll find several sights and things to do. In fact, when planning your Taiwan trip, you can even dedicate an entire week’s itinerary to Taipei alone. Here, high-rise buildings and commercial districts dominate the skyline although there are countless nature escapes not so far from the city centre, too.

Did you know that Taipei is a haven for techies? So you should definitely go gadget-shopping on your Taiwan trip. For your culture and history fix, head to National Palace Museum, National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and Liberty Square, and the many temples that dot the city. Day trips are very popular – tour Jiufen, Shifen, and Yehliu Geopark! Ximending never fails night owls and those looking to immerse in the city’s livelier areas. It’s a hotspot for late-night shopping and munching on must-try Taiwanese street food like cuttlefish, Taiwanese sausage, and their take on fried chicken. Don’t forget to down it all with some boba milk tea. You can also get your bellies filled at night markets like Raohe, Shilin, Tonghua. Yum!

Of course, your Taiwan trip can also cover other areas. This means you’ll just have to be on the lookout for more cheap flight tickets to Taiwan. Catch the annual Lantern Festival, which is celebrated across the country during the first lunar month. An adventure towards Alishan lets you enjoy a scenic train ride perfect for taking those Instagrammable shots. Don’t forget seaside Kaohsiung and Taichung, where you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the mountainside. Sounds awesome, right? So don’t think twice about booking cheap flights to Taiwan!

Best time to visit Taiwan

Deciding which Taiwan flights to book largely depends on the season you’d like to experience. Spring is from March to June and has been often deemed as the best time to visit Taiwan. The weather during this time is pleasant – not too hot, not too cold. On the other hand, planning your Taiwan trip in the summer (June to September) calls for airy outfits that will let you breeze through warmer temperatures and the thick crowds of peak season.

Those who prefer outdoor adventures should definitely consider booking flights to Taiwan in autumn (September to December), when there is little to no rainfall. Layer up if you were able to book cheap flight tickets to Taiwan in winter from December to March! If you’re visiting then, you might want to experience the country’s Chinese New Year celebrations. Note though, that cities like Taipei will often be empty (with many establishments closed) at this time; most people will be in the countryside.

Taiwan travel budget

The Taiwanese Dollar, also called the New Taiwan Dollar ($NT or TWD), is the currency in Taiwan. As of 31 May 2019, TWD1 converts to RM0.13. The daily budget for a comfortable Taiwan trip starts at TWD780 (RM103.60). With this amount, you can be billeted at a hostel or a budget hotel. Meal expenses are easier to cut down on since there are several night markets, street food kiosks, and convenience stores to choose from. You can satisfy your appetite with cheap eats for TWD5 (RM.66) or even less!

Hotel prices in Taiwan vary, of course, but you can always choose to treat yourself to the finer things in life! A single night at a fancy hotel can cost TWD3,000 (RM398.49) or more but there are also many affordable hostel options starting from TWD 454 (RM60) a night.

Transportation is no problem either. While you can take a cab, rent a car service or take public transportation. Easycards, which you can use to pay for train and bus rides as well as purchases from major convenience stores, cost TWD100 (RM13.28). You’ll have to load them so we recommend putting in at least TWD400 (RM53.13) for a one-week stay. That will most likely tide you through everything and even allow you to have a snack at the airport before heading home.
