I’ve already read and benefitted from a lot of your posts about life in Taiwan. I am hoping you can shed some light on my current conundrum.
We (my boyfriend and I) arrived in Hualien two days ago. We’d like to stay here for 3-6 months, and we’ve now spent a couple of days looking at “apartments” available for short-term rental. All of these have been just one room, without a kitchen, and quite small. We’d like to move into a real apartment, i.e., one-two rooms+kitchen.
Will it be possible to find something like this? Should we expect to sign up for a one-year lease if we want an actual apartment? Will we be able to do this without a work visa/permit?
We’re able to pay up to 15,000 TWD/month.
Any advice appreciated!
