So long story short, I plan to move to Taiwan with my Taiwanese girlfriend. She is from Yangmei in Taoyuan but I cant seem to find much about Yangmei online. That said I have seen loads about Taoyuan and have heard that Taoyuan is rather boring and some places like Zhongli are rather dirty and so on (not my words, just what I saw online) but I also heard Nankan isn’t too bad as the apartments are more modern and there is a mall there. The overall vibe I get from what I have heard about Taoyuan city is not the best.
My girlfriend is interested in buying an apartment in the next couple of years and she says the price in yangmei is cheaper than that of Nankan, hence why she would prefer to live there.
Anyway, what can people tell me about Yangmei in particular? Would you suggest Nankan over yangmei? Is Taoyuan as really as bad as people say?
Thanks for any input, and if it makes a difference I will be job hunting for ESL positions post COVID-19 in the Taoyuan area.
