What is the best way to approach Taiwan?


in Taiwan by @zoxel | 8mo  | 4 comments

We have never been in Taiwan (a couple of travelers) and I am just wondering is possible to find there some quite clean place to hang for a while? How it is better to start? Are there any websiteโ€™s for short and long term rentals? It looks like AirBnB is not that popular there. So it seems that usual tactics - rent hotel or airbnb for short term and then look for long term just driving around might not work. It looks like everything there in Chinese - so if there are any tips how to overcome this - that is more then welcome :slight_smile: Overall just interested in any suggestion - where best to go first? Also is it hard to extend your stay there - we are digital nomads - so working for some company overseas and probably will be extending as a tourist (If we like there).
Sorry for so many questions - but this is really some terra incognita for me :slight_smile:

I can offer my experience at least. I stayed at Meander hostel a few years back in a private room. It ended up being a great choice, it wasnโ€™t crazy expensive and I was able to meet up with a lot of travelers just by chilling in the common room. Everyone was so friendly, I remember just sitting there and random people would start chatting with me and within minutes we were all taking a walk to the nearby night market. In addition to all the social aspects of the hostel, I had my own private room so I was able to stay productive. I only stayed for around 2 weeks though. Hope this helps!

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 8d 8 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

in Taipei, Taiwan by @gnefkow | 2yr 2 years ago | 7 comments

Hello,

My girlfriend and I will be heading to Taipei for a month in February, and weโ€™re trying to figure out where to live. Any advice onโ€ฆ

  • How to find a place? Are there any websites where we could find a place for a month?
  • Area of town - which district should we try to stay in?

Weโ€™re on a budget, looking for something that would be around $400usd per month if possible.

Taipei or Kaohsiung for May?


in Taipei, Taiwan by @autumnflame | 3yr 3 years ago | 5 comments

My partner and I are looking at staying in Taiwan for the month of May, and were wondering if Taipei or Kaohsiung is better for living and working in? Our primary purpose will be working, so cheap food/accommodation (thatโ€™s relatively easy for a foreigner to find and obtain) and fast internet are our biggest priorities, but some sightseeing and nightlife would be nice. (I know Taipei has the latter, not as sure about Kaohsiung.) Thanks!

Any renting advice for a longer stay in Taipei?


in Taipei, Taiwan by @sanderversluys | 5yr 4 years ago | 0 comments

Iโ€™ll arrive in Taipei in april and need a place for at least couple of months but Iโ€™m not eager to rent something from seeing the online listing alone.

Any advice on good price points, location or trustworthy real estate companies and such is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Does anyone have first hand experience with Project Fi in Taipei or Beijing?


in Taipei, Taiwan by @prettypikey | 5yr 4 years ago | 11 comments

Iโ€™m curious to know if it actually works. The website lists China and Taiwan as countries where it should theoretically work, I was just looking to hear from anyone using it first hand.

Are there any digital nomads in Kaohsiung, Taiwan?


in Kaohsiung, Taiwan by @piglin | 5yr 5 years ago | 1 comment

Hi folks, before I stayed mostly in Taipei and I want to know how does the southern capital Kaohsiung compare for nomad friendliness. Those of you who were there and especially did some work are welcome to share thoughts.

What's your approach to finding medium term accommodation?

 

by @andygreenwood | 5yr 5 years ago | 24 comments

Hi everyone.

Whatโ€™s your approach/resources for finding medium term accommodation (Iโ€™m thinking 1 month-3 months as that tends to be the visa limit)?

Been building up my work this year whilst also being a traditional backpacker so moving far too quickly.

Next year is all about picking two or three locations and โ€œsettlingโ€ for a while.
