You will normally arrive at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in Taoyuan, 43 kilometers southwest of the capital, Taipei and a 2 hour bus ride to Taichung.
From the airport, we recommend you taking city buses (Ubus or Fego) available at the airport.
The closest stop to our university is Chao Ma station. From there, you can take a short taxi ride to our main gate.
The airport's website also has details on fares and where to take these buses.
The Chinese Division is located on the fourth floor of the Second Administration Building. We are the second building on your right, when you enter the campus from the main gate.
Dubbed as the cultural city of Taiwan, Taichung is the third largest city in Taiwan. With a blend of modern development and traditional aspects of Taiwanese lifestyle, Taichung offers a laid-back and friendly atmosphere with benefits and conveniences of city life.
Taichung is generally regarded as having one of the most agreeable climates all throughout the year. It's not as muggy and hot as the south in summer and is entirely different from Taipei with its seemingly eternal drizzle, its bone chilling winters and oppressively hot summers. Besides that, Taichung is rarely hit by typhoons and there are comparatively few rainy days.
Annual average temperature:22.8°C (73.04°F)
Annual average rainfall: about 1600 mm
Average humidity: 79%

Unlike other major cities, Taichung does not have any rapid transit systems but rather rely on traditional modes of transportation. Taichung's city bus system has improved over the last couple years with more routes provided and reliable time schedules. Scooters are by far the preferred way to get around in Taichung as it is convenient and efficient when it comes to taking shortcuts and finding parking.
