After staying in Taiwan (Zhongli to be exact) for the past 5 Months, I will return in February next year to stay for 2 years in Taiwan, while working in Pingzhen (Taoyouan County).
Personally I want to move to Taipei now, to be able to build some sort of life outside of work, since that was rather difficult in Zhongli without a lack of proficient Chinese Skills (and also any kind of Life in this City). So I was already looking at especially Shilin and Da’an to see if I like the areas and surroundings. I would get an monthly allowance for the appartment, so the rent wouldn’t be a problem.
However now, I have 2-3 concerns about my plan:
Does anybody have experience with the commute from Taipei to Taoyouan every day? I know this will be around 2 hours every day, so I’m not sure how feasible that is for 2 years.
Finding Appartments in Da’an with a parking spot included seems to be very difficult. Is there a possiblity to find something without a Parking Spot and then buy that seperately? Is that realistic?
Unfortunately I have to leave in two weeks due to Visa Issues, so I won’t be back until February. Is it realistic to find a place in two weeks?
Would be great if someone could help me on this topic.
Thanks and good night,
