「How to find us?」
When you arrive at Feng Chia University Bus Stop ( 逢甲大學 or 西安街 in Chinese script) on 'Fu Xing North Road' go down the short road 'Fengjia Road'(Left at the McDonalds on the corner) towards Feng Chia University entrance (large concrete entrance gate), turn left (at the Hi-life store), and go straight down this narrow road 'Wen Hua Road' for about 5-10 minute (walking) to reach us. You will pass a Mos Burger on the right which is part of the large FCU Wenhuae Innovation Center entrance (we are about 250 meters from here). Keep walking past the first Family Mart towards the second one (before you reach the second Family Mart watch for a Laya Bagel on the right). Turn right into the next alley after Laya Bagel ('Alley 162, Wen Hua road'). There's a Subway store on the corner at the start of this alley. Our office is the twelfth door on the right-hand side of the alley about 35 meters down. We are across from the Hair Salon. Please enter our office and staff will be there to show you to your room.

'How to Reach Feng Chia University bus stop?'
-From the Regular train station: You can catch Bus numbers: 22, 25, 33, or 35 from the bus shelter out the front of the train station. The cost is 20NT (have the correct change) and will take about 30 minutes depending on traffic. Your stop 'Feng Chia University' will be announced. For visual reference: bus stop is a few stores down from a Large McDonalds on the corner, and should stop in front of a Watsons Pharmacy. This is a popular stop so many passengers should exit here.

If you are unfamiliar with the buses: just step on, place your money in the slot beside the driver and take a seat. There is no need to tell the driver where you are 'getting off', unless you want to. Stops will be called out in Chinese then in English (sometimes also visually displayed) when you hear your stop (eg: 'Feng Chia University') press a buzzer near you (if someone else has not already), then hop off at the stop. Sometimes the bus driver will give you a card when you enter the bus, if this happens don't pay first, just wait until your stop swipe the card when exiting and pay the amount displayed (don't forget to return the card also).

-From the High Speed Rail Station (THSR): The small shuttle bus from here to Feng Chia University is FREE(when you take the THSR to Taichung)!. When you arrive at the train station head downstairs towards the bus departure area (opposite side to the Taxi departures) then make your way to where the THSR shuttles depart (downstairs on the right-hand side) The shuttle to catch is number 12. Line up at the number 12 sign (the shuttle that goes to the Overseas Chinese University) and hop on the shuttle when it arrives. Shuttle departs approx every 20 minutes. The trip will take about 20-30 minutes depending on traffic, and Feng Chia University is the second last stop, press the buzzer when this stop is announced (if needed).

-From the Airport (Taoyuan): (Terminal 1) Head to your left when you exit immigration into the arrivals hall, towards the bus departures area. There will be a number of booths for different bus companies that offer services to Taichung, times for these services should be displayed. Approach the appropriate booth and purchase a ticket to Taichung. If they offer a choice of 'drop off' points in Taichung city request Feng Chia U0niversity ( 逢甲大學 or 西安街 in Chinese script) or a stop closest to this location, because Feng Chia is in the north of the city this drop off point will most likely be one of the first. Try to obtain a map of the drop off points from the company and mark your stop, to avoid any complications show this to the driver to make sure he knows where you want to get off. don't forget to ask where the bus departs and the bus number. We recommend U-Bus as we understand it is the least expensive, but there are many different companies to choose from.

-From one of the many road-side bus stops in Taichung City: Bus stops are numerous throughout the city due to the absence of a Metro line. Buses that go to Feng Chia University bus stop are: 5, 22, 25, 28, 33, 35, 45, 54, 68, 79 and 6210. Be sure you are on the correct side of the road so that you go in the right direction! (typically north bound) The majority of bus stops are very basic (ie: no seats or shelters) so can be easily overlooked. Keep an eye out for white signs on the side of the road (usually more than one) that are clustered together, they will typically have the Bus numbers and routes marked out on one side (but only in Chinese), and the Bus numbers and company name of the other side. The signs do differ between each other but can usually be identified as bus stop signs. Flag down the appropriate bus on the correct side of the road and follow the directions for catching a bus (given above) to Feng Chia University bus stop (逢甲大學 or 西安街 in Chinese script)

If you take the taxi:
You must tell the driver, you want to go to (文華道會館) this address is pronounced 「Wun Hwa Dow Weigh Gwan」 (written phonetically), this is the name of a large hotel near our Hostel called the 「In One, City Inn」 and the taxi driver should know this location, we are only about 50 meters from here. Once you arrive at the 「In One, City Inn」 you will see an arcade (walkway running through the building) just on the left of the entrance, follow this to the end turn left we are about 25 meters down this street on the left-hand side, please refer to the original directions for other points of reference if you have difficulty finding us. If the taxi driver does not know this location then try Feng Chia University.
We are close to Feng Chia University. On the city map, it is written as 「Feng Chia University」, but if you are speaking to a taxicab driver, it is 「Feng Jia Da Xue」 by the Pinyin system, or phonetically 「Fung Jah Dah Schweigh」. Try to use the first address (In One, City Inn) as taxi drivers have usually dropped guests a long distance from our hostel when they use the second address (Feng Chia University) Taxis can be found easily at both train stations, or flagged down at any location in the city.
