Also, do you know how long the shuttle bus takes from the Taoyuan HSR to the TPE airport?
I recently had a EVA 9am departure heading towards JKT. Lucky the HSR has check in counters for EVA / UNi and China Air. So if you are taking one of those do your check in there, its faster and easier. They open counters at 7am I believe. So I was there at 7am, checked one bag in and headed for the bus. Which comes every 10 to 15 mins I think. There was one just waiting to leave and I jumped on it and it took less then 25 mins to get to the terminal from the HSR station in Taoyuan. They will take you to Terminal 1 or 2 (so know which you will be using as that saves time).
I made my 9am flight with plenty of time to spare. I think I got to the gate at like 800 am and had to wait an hour for take off.
