Train #648 Standard Seat, Taiwan High Speed Rail (Taiwan High Speed Rail ), Feb 16, 2021
I'm foreigner in Taiwan, so my tickets were valid. My gf is Taiwanese, her tickets were not valid. We lost $100.. You should communicate it more clear on top that this page is only for travellers and not for local people. I've overlooked it. Maybe mark it red for better visibility
