I’m thinking of moving from Taipei to Kaohsiung for a number of reasons but I don’t know shit about Kaohsiung and was hoping someone could help me with some general information. I’m sure this question has been asked before, but I haven’t been able to find much.
Hows the job scene? I’d like to immerse myself in work (At least 8 hours a day) Are teaching jobs easy to find there? It doesn’t seem like there are too many adds on TEALIT or FORUMOSA right now. Also, I don’t want to go on a visa run and my contract ends July 31st…So That gives me two weeks to do demos, interviews, look around, move, etc.
Where would I want to live? And is housing difficult to find? I would like to live near the “Cool” neighborhood (if there is one)…preferably near some bars, clubs, and western “comforts.” But I would also like it to be kinda quiet (if possible in Taiwan.)
Are there easy escapes from the city? One thing I love about Taipei is that I can ride my motorcycle or hike to the top of a mountian and be back home in a few hours.
Any help at all would be much appreciated.
