Daripada nganggur dan hanya disimpan di draft, saya publish pengalaman saya transit selama 24++ jam di Taoyuan Airport di bulan Agustus tahun 2015.
In this summer vacation, I decided to go back to Indonesia instead of staying and exploring Japan. I planned to go to Fuji Mountain this summer, but I cancelled it because of the summer heat that I might couldn’t afford. So, I ordered flight ticket back to Indonesia from Orbitz. I got a round trip ticket from Fukuoka to Kuala Lumpur only 359 USD (about 45.178 JPY) but I had to transfer flight in Taipei (Taoyuan Airport) for 21 hours.
BUT WHAT, 21 HOURS??!?
What the hell should I do? Chill man, thank you Google, I found out the free half day tour provided by the airport for passengers who transit more than 8 hours. I would enjoy Taipei then.
I departed from Fukuoka Airport at 10.10 AM JST and arrived in Terminal 1 Gate A9 Taoyuan Airport at 11.30 AM Taiwan time (one hour behind Japan), so it took 2 hours 20 minutes flight from Fukuoka Airport to Taoyuan Airport. I need 1 hour to reach the transit gate and find out where the money exchange was. I exchanged USD to TND (Taiwan New Dollars). I decided to bring USD because USD has stable (high) rate and accepted everywhere (since I will visit three countries with different currencies: Taiwan, Malaysia and Indonesia :p).
