To get there from Taoyuan or Zhongli simply take the No#1 freeway south to the 66 expressway heading east, and take the Jung feng exit. Turn right and go straight for about 4km until you see a Mcdonalds on your left with an Elementary School across. Azul's R&B is next to the school in a unique circular building that is impossible to miss.

North from Hsinchu simply head North on the freeway unitil you hit the 66 turnoff heading east and follow the directions above.

Hey Brian,
Ya you can get to it by scooter. Just take the old Highway 1 from Taoyuan to Zhongli. Once in Zhongli then head to the train station. From there head under the station and up. Once out of the tunnel turn right on the first road. Follow it as it slow curves(many blocks), then turn right when you get to a funny 5 way intersection. Don't make a "U" turn onto the immediate right though. Then stay to your right, don't take the underpass, you will see you have to then turn left to go over the underpass. Take it and then follow that road for about 10 minutes(depends on speed though). It is called Chung Fong Road. It will pass through a small town with a Mcdonalds on your right and then down a small hill. Continue on until you see another Mcdonalds on you left. Then look to your right a little ahead and you will see Azul's. It is right on the corner in a round 3 story building(stand alone one). Go in and have a great time. For me the trip would take about 30 min. maybe(I ride fast). You I am not too sure. Once you know the way it will be a lot faster. Budget 45+ the first time though. Take care and see you there. Hope this helps and is not too complicated.

By train, take it to Zhongli and get off. Across the street is the bus station. Take the bus going to Longtan down Chung Fong Road, not sure the number. Get off as you see the second Mcdonalds. You can see it from there. Later.

Hmm...

The rest of this post is spot on for directions, with the exception of what I've quoted above.

You don't need to go to the Train station, and you'll save much time by just staying on provencial highway one all the way through Zhongli. Once you have passed through most of Downtown Zhongli you'll see a large Police station on your left, with an elementary school on your right (and a footbridge). From there, Jung feng Road is the third light. Hang a left, and then follow the previous posters directions to Azul's.

30 minutes by scooter from Taoyuan? That's pretty optimistic. Give it 50 minutes to an hour depending on where in Taoyuan you are coming from and how fast you ride. Azuls place is in Longtan, a pretty long jaunt by scooter from Taoyuan city.

Yeh, take the bridge that goes over the tracks. That is Chung Fong road. That is easier, but I thought the train station might be a good reference. The place you turn left at is a funny angled intersection with a large park on your right(kitty corner right that is), if you follow the new instructions. You come to another big school on your left and then a bridge if you go to far. Just watch for the bridge over the train tracks on your left. That is the correct road. Hey MJB, you and I made it from Taipei to Zhongli in 50min. on our bikes. Taoyuan to Zhongli/Longtan no sweat(ha,ha).
