Taipei, Taiwan: Taoyuan International Airport Free Showers!!!, 07 May 2015

For me, one of the worst things about these epic trans-Pacific, 24hr-long flights with long transits thrown in, is not being able to take a shower. Thankfully, the Seoul International Airport offers that. But today, I discovered that the Taiyuan International Airport offers it, too. I’m not quite sure when they started this. Judging from the excellent condition of the facilities, I am guessing it’s pretty new.

Where to find it?

After clearing transit security, head towards the food area on the upper concourse. You should see a Burger King and Starbucks. Do not stop there. Look across from there, and you should be able to see a Mosburger yonder. Walk behind the narrow path located beside the fancy Eva Air lounge meant for those privileged ones towards the Mosburger.

You’ll see this (sorry, blurry pic)

At the bathroom from where this picture is taken, you’ll find two shower stalls:

The awesome thing?

1. They are free

2. They come with those wall units of shower foam and shampoo.

3. There’s also a hair dryer attached.

4. It involves a rain shower, a shower head, and a tap.

How it works

After you get in, lock the door. Once you are ready to take a shower, push the red button. It’ll give you 15 mins of hot water. That should be plenty.

The lowdown?

1. If you didn’t bring a towel, you can buy one from the massage/spa place that you’ll pass by, on your walk from Burger King to here. I just used my shirt to towel off.
