    You can take the high speed from taipei main train station. In kaohsiung you'll have to get off at Zuoying station. From here you can either take bus downtown or take another local train (about 10 minutes journey) to the main station in Kaohsiung.

    Ticket is actually $1,190 (mon-thurs) and $ 1,490 (fri-sun, pub holiday)
    You can find more info on the web site: http://www.thsrc.com.tw/en/index.htm

    Happy backpacking in Taiwan :-) Hmmm.. i miss kaohsiung...
