If you're booked to take the Star Cruises trip to the beautiful Taiwanese port cities of Kaohsiung and Taichung, you can enter Taiwan on a 'Temporary Entry Permit' at no cost whatsoever!
The ship will be at port in both the cities so you can enter the city and explore the local culture, sightseeing, food and shopping.
Also known as the harbor capital of Taiwan, Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s second largest city and the biggest commercial port. Travellers can also enjoy the city aboard the Love River Cruise and admire the city's night view with colorfully illuminated bridges over the river and lights from the surrounding skyscrapers. There are plenty of open-air cafes along the river.
A number of airlines such as China Airlines, Cathay Pacific, China Southern and Thai Airways fly directly or with a stopover to Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport from Delhi and Mumbai. The average flight time between India and Taiwan is about 6.5 hours. Taiwan is 2.30 hours ahead of India.
