It is not the conditions in your comfortable airconditioned apartment in Taiwan that you should be worried about, but the appalling conditions on board the ship it will come to Taiwan that should worry you. People in Taiwan have clothes and furniture too you know (!) If you make sure conditions on board the cargo ship are humidity controlled (which they should be) your goods should arrive in good nick.
It is hard to get a record player in Taipei. If you’re bringing LPs they might suffer on board ship ? Also it may be worth thinking about the practicalities of moving large items of furniture up stairs in cramped stairwells. If your firm is paying I presume you will be sorted out with a nice gaff, but make sure it’s door to door AND up the stairs service ! (Most lifts are too small for a sofa).
Shirts with French cuffs are very hard to find.
As are decent leather jackets.
You might want to bring any formal suits you own (I mean tuxedos) - but frankly, Asia is full of good tailors, but if the boss is paying…
Shoes - I could never find any (apart from ridiculously priced ones) for size 10 (UK) feet, which is a normal size foot (size 11 US?)
It gets very cold in the winter.
Taiwan has almost everthing now. When I first arrived in 92 it was very hard to get wine and cheese. Now they even have IKEA !!!
My memories of late 97 were that the only things you couldn’t get were Tampax (I used to come back from the UK with bags of them) and rolling tobacco.
