The route will not only give travelers from CRK access to Taiwan, but will also increase the convenience of traveling to North America and Europe.

Guests can also visit the 509 meter-tall, bamboo-shaped Taipei 101 skyscraper, the 1970s monument to Taiwan’s former military and political leader Chiang Kai-shek, and Huashan 1914 Creative Park, which is home to a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, and exhibition halls.
Recently, the Taiwanese government announced that it is extending its visa-free policy for Filipinos. Philippine passport holders, except those holding diplomatic or official/service passports, can stay up to 14 days. The visa exemption program is valid until July 31, 2023.
CRK operates from its new expansive and innovative passenger terminal building, which employs a one-time security check and contactless systems, and offers a good selection of dining options.
