“ Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (IATA: TPE, ICAO: RCTP) (Traditional Chinese: 台灣桃園國際機場 or 臺灣桃園國際機場; Tongyong Pinyin: Táiwan Táoyuán Gúojì Jichǎng, Pinyin: Táiwān Táoyuán Gúojì Jīchǎng), formerly Chiang Kai-shek International Airport (Traditional Chinese: 中正國際機場; Tongyong Pinyin: Jhongjhèng Gúojì Jichǎng; Pinyin: Zhōngzhèng Gúojì Jīchǎng), also known simply as Taoyuan Airport or C.K.S. Airport, is an international airport located in Taoyuan County, Taiwan, Republic of China. It is the one of the three international airports in Taiwan, and by far the busiest international air entry point. It is the home base for China Airlines and EVA Air, which both operate a major hub at this airport. Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport is one of two airports that serve northern Taiwan, including Taipei. The other is Taipei Songshan Airport located within the Taipei City limits, which serves only domestic flights and, rarely, some chartered international flights. Taipei Songshan Airport formerly served Taipei as its international airport before the opening of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, then known as Chiang Kai-shek International Airport, in 1979. The other two international airports in Taiwan are Kaohsiung International Airport (Hsiaogang Airport) and Taichung International Airport. „
This is a pretty good airport.
I have a flight from Los Angeles to Macau last week with a stop in Taipei airport to change plane. This is a pretty good airport. It is clean and tidy. Drinking fountains are easy to find. There is a little restaurant selling super delicious japanese noodle in bone soup with tender pork and vegetable, Danish milk pastry is awesome also. It takes a while to line up but it is worth the wait. There is also a mini version of the national museum exhibiting several antique pieces. The museum store is just right by the side and offer a wide range of Chinese Museum items. Very nice! There are couple of shops selling the famous Taiwan beef jerky, ethnic Taiwanese sweet treats, perfume, wine, cigarettes and brand name handbags. I also find a small recharging station outside one of the shop. It is for all kinds of cellular phones. If you are a customer of the shop, you are entitled to use this service. All the shops and restaurants accept Hong Kong Dollars, US Dollars and Taiwanese money. Pretty cool!
On the second floor, there are airline lounges for business and first class customers.
