My boyfriend is looking for English teaching jobs right now from the states. We want to live in Taipei, but he’s applying to a job in Jung Li as a backup.
Now, the salary for the Jung li job is higher, and the rents (from what I can find online) seems to be a lot lower. And it’s only an hour away from Taipei, which I can deal with.
The question is…is it an OK place to live? I’ve read some old posts that describe Jung Li as everything between a bit of a hole to gangster capital of Taiwan. How serious were the posters being. Anybody actually want to stick up for Jung Li?
(Yes, I do feel silly asking a bunch of foreigners about a city in Taiwan when I’m Taiwanese. But I left when I was 9 years old, m’kay. I’d ask my mom, but I know sh’d be very biased against any other city in Taiwan. And the official website of the city was kind of unenlightening.)
