a food court on the other side of customs.
a bar with big screen TVs to kick back at.
something of interest for non-TWese to browse through or buy.
decent food in the lounges (if I want baochi and cold noodles I’d go to 7/11).
Jack Daniels at duty free (who fucking wants Jim Beam or Evan cocksucking Williams?)
a convenience store (they are everywhere else on the island). wait, is there one there now, or am I thinking of BKK? I have my flights out of TW timed so I spend as little time as possible from my door to my seat on the plane.
the best thing about Taoyuan is you can get checked in and through customs and security much quicker than other airports.
I have friends who live in Thailand and PI who transit through Taoyuan on BR and CI and they say it is the worst possible transit airport on the planet, and that there is absolutely fuck all to do. this comes back to my food court and shopping idea.
IMVHO this will be another classic TW aim for the stars on a ‘cost down’ budget epic failure.
