Our tips for Taipei

  • Under my umbrella. The inhabitants of Taipei often carry an umbrella under their arm wherever they go. It can pour buckets in Taipei without a moment’s notice. Throw a good raincoat into your suitcase, too!
  • Helpful citizens, little English. In Taiwan, it isn’t unusual to see a tourist surrounded by locals trying to help them. However, many people speak very little English. The language is taught at schools, but they don’t speak it after that. So, the easiest people to communicate with may be young adults.
  • Easy does it. EasyCard is a contact-free smartcard which makes traveling in Taipei very easy. You can use the EasyCard on local busses, the subway, convenience stores, Youbikes, or even to pay for parking.
