Taiwan further improves infrastructure for tourists

New airport metro, rail stations, hotels and a museum to open
People travelling to Taiwan will be greeted with new and enhanced tourism infrastructure over the next few months, TTG Asia reports.
From December 1, passengers travelling on the High Speed Rail will be able to stop at three new stations – Miaoli, Changhua and Yunlin.
Meanwhile, the long-awaited 51km metro line from Taoyuan International Airport to Taipei Station is now scheduled for an opening in late March 2016. It has 22 stops in total. Downtown check-in services will also be made available at Taipei Station.
“(There will be) more express train services connecting Hualien and Taitung,” Phoenix Tours’ general manager Benjamin Pien, said. “The journey from Taipei to Taitung will be shortened from four to three hours.”
The National Palace Museum Southern Branch is slated for a December 28 opening. Situated in Taibao city in Chiayi county, it will start with 10 exhibitions and is expected to draw four million visitors per year. Free admission will be offered to all visitors until March 31.
On the hotel front, several new properties will debut over the coming months, including the 205-room Westin Tashee Resort, the 465-key Courtyard by Marriott Taipei and both the Aloft Taipei Beitou and Zhongshan.
Also the Taoyuan International Airport’s third terminal is expected to be completed by 2020.
