Kaohsiung has an international airport and is easily accessible from many cities and countries.

China airlines has a direct, non-stop flight from Bangkok to Kaohsiung if you are coming from that direction. Many other airlines connect to Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Jakarta directly. If a flight doesn’t connect directly, it will surely go to Taipei upon which you can take the HSR (High Speed Rail) from Taipei to Kaohsiung. It is only 90 minutes away. The stop for Kaohsiung is called Zuoying and KAS is only about an 8 minute taxi ride away. Many people make the return trip to Kaohsiung daily as there are several trains a day coming to Kaohsiung.
