The Star EVA AIR Lounge at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, 18 February 2014

Continuing with my own journey, after arriving in TPE to connect to my next flight to CGK, I got time to explore and check out EVA Air’s lounge offering. After passing through security, head to middle of the terminal and go up one floor to where the airline lounges are located. I was a little confused at first to see that EVA Air has 4 recently renovated lounges! I have access and checked out two of them. As I took many pictures, I will make a follow up post for the shower room at The Star lounge. Here are the pictures from The Star lounge, all 23 of them!

Star Alliance Gold members can take advantage of The Star EVA Air Lounge. I think by now US Airways is already removed as they merged with American Airlines.
