Taipei Main Station has been relocated and renovated numerous times since its establishment on July 5, 1891. The station building today was completed on September 2, 1989. It is also where the headquarters of Taiwan Railway Administration was set. As Taipei Metro and Taiwan High Speed Rail started operating, the Taipei City Mall, an extensive underground market, was gradually formed.
The whole area related to Taipei Main Station is as large as 46.31 hectares, including the nearby commercial district with businesses and learning institutions, Taipei Transit Station, MRT North Gate Station, Airport MRT Taipei Station, Huashan 1914 Creative Park and other places of the "Taipei Station Specific Area." It is undoubtedly the biggest hub of transportation in the Taipei–Keelung metropolitan area.

WowBeing our first time in Taipei we were amazed at the size of this station. Do take a moment to admire how big it is. We got lost a couple of times due to confusing signage however that only added to the holiday feel! Helpful staff were at hand.
Faces in the crowdTaipei Main Station is always crowded -- the Metro (MRT), High Speed Rail and Taoyuan Airport MRT all go through it. here's also a lot of shopping. Give yourself plenty of time, it can be confusing.
Taipei StationIt is very convenient located - it is next to the Taoyuan airport express station, you can take train to suburb area. Clean and you can also buy some food souvenir for your family and friend easily there and not to mention quite a variety of restaurants

Station where all connectivity centralizedTaipei Station is a very busy station where all the public transport interchange located. Airport MRT, train are in one building. Also, underground connected Express bus station and MRT stations such as Taipei Main and Beimen. It is also near to XimenTing area where lots of tourist went. Surrounding area have lots of big shopping malls, Airbnb, hotels, shops and restaurants. Underground Street Mall also under the Taipei Station. It is practically a shopping area as well!!
Xinyi District, Taipéi
Avoid peak times if possibleThe hub of MRT and BUS/TRA/HSR travel in Taipei. Follow the signs and you should be OK. Main Station can get overwhelmingly busy during rush hour so newbies should avoid these times or get swept up in a herd of people buried in their phones scurrying to their exits/platforms.
