How to get from Hualien to Kaohsiung to Taipei

Hi Guys

I will be going to Kaohsiung for 1 night after my 3 night at Hualien. And since it's just a 2 day 1 night at Kaohsiung, i need to know the fastest, average priced ways of going to Kaohsiung. Can anyone suggest the different ways available for me?

Last but not least, i understand that the Bullet Train is preferred for a trip to Taipei from Kaohsiung. Does anyone have the website for booking of tickets? If you have other ways to reach Taipei, do share too.

Thanks in advance!

I understand that the train ticket from Taipei to Hualien can be purchased online 14 days in advance if i pay by credit card.

May i know when is the earliest date that i can book

1. Hualien to Kaohsiung Train Ticket

2. Kaohsiung to Taipei Train Ticket

Do they have the same policy?

Example:

- If paying by credit card only

- Can collect anytime at their train station
