Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport is the 13th busiest airport in the world, and Taiwan’s largest airport, serving more than 25 million passengers annually. It is located in Taoyuan County, about 40km (25 miles) south-west of Taipei.
Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport has two terminals that are linked by Skytrain people movers. Currently under construction and due for completion in 2013, the MRT rapid transit system will link both terminals as well as provide quick transport to the city of Taipei. Numerous duty-free stores are located in both terminals, as well as a host of dining and drinking venues that cater to both eastern and western palettes.
Overall, Taiwan Taoyuan International is a comfortable and clean airport with friendly and helpful staff. The terminal buildings are uniquely appealing to the eye, as numerous plants adorn public areas and natural light filters through the windows. Better yet, queues move quickly and procedures like security checks and baggage claims are a breeze.
