YMUNT V will be hosted at the Sunworld Dynasty Hotel in the heart of Taipei. We are incredibly excited to be working with the Sunworld Dynasty for this iteration of the conference, and we hope that delegates enjoy the new and improved facilities the conference will be held in. Our new venue features high quality conference rooms, exceptional rooming options, and significantly improved accessibility to the surrounding city.

Accommodations and Transportation
The Sunworld Dynasty Hotel is easily accessible by multiple means of transportation. If you have any questions or concerns about accessing the conference, please email the Under-Secretary General of Delegations at email@example.com.
For those participating from Taipei
The Sunworld Dynasty Hotel is located three blocks away from one of Taiwan's MRT stations as well as has parking for those driving to YMUN Taiwan. The walk is roughly 10-15 minutes.
For those arriving from Taoyuan International (TPE)
Taxis range between $1200-1400 NTD from TPE to the Sunworld Dynasty Hotel while shuttles can run for a higher cost. These are all available at the transit stations in front of each TPE terminal.
An MRT rail station also recently opened at TPE, allowing for fast transit into the city for $160 NTD per person to get to Taipei's main station (35 minute ride). After switching rail lines to Taipei's main station, delegations should take the Xindian-Songshan line to the Taipei Arena stop for about $20 NTD per person (6-10 minute ride). The walk from the Taipei Arena station to the hotel is approximately 3 minutes.
