Im not sure about forum ettiquite in this forum.
There is a sticky about finding a place to live, but since everytime it is updated, it always stays at the top, so i am creating a new thread as i fear no one will see it in the sticky.
if this is wrong, please tell me, thanks.
I want to inquire about finding a place to stay, i have only been to Taipei for 3 weeks a year ago, and i decided to stay for a year and take a mandarin course for a year at mtc. It starts in September.
Im not even sure if it is possible, to stay for a year on $10,000 canadian, which is 300,178 NT currently, not including my course fees.
I have no friends there currently to help me look for a place to stay, but i have been told that Yilan is cheap (and i visited there and it seems very nice), but i wonder if the overall cost to travel by train every day from there to Taipei and whether it would be cheaper to just live in Taipei.
I really only need a room, not much more for a single guy, so not sure of what a room would go for on today’s rates.
I did not want to work when im there but i might want to do something part time if available , im not sure how much i need to work in order to get enough money to pay for the rent/food without touching the 10,000 canadian.
There was another question but i forgot
Thanks again for everyones help in advance…
