My new office is really close to Xihu station, the thing is it’s not too lively around Xihu station. There are only office buildings it seems. I’m looking for an apartment/room where there are malls, gyms, markets accessible by foot.
I don’t mind waking up earlier to take the MRT (as long as I don’t have to switch lines edit: I guess I don’t really mind if it means lower rent cost haha), so I’m looking for a place along the Zhongxiao-Fuxing station - Neihu station (and close to the MRT station). Where do you recommend?
I’m originally from Taichung by the way, so I’m not familiar at all with Taipei. I don’t know where are the city centers, night markets, etc.
personally i like the Dazhi area, as well as jiannan road station area. should answer all your needs.
if you want to go down the brown line, technoogy building and liu zhang li are also nice.
it all depends on budget…
On another note, what do you guys usually use to find apartments & rooms? I’ve been rejected 5 times by 591 sellers just because I’m Indonesian One of them even said “Well, you know how Taiwanese people feel about Indonesians & Malaysians”
I’m so sorry you had to go through this. I friend of mine had a similar problem. What helped her was asking a Taiwanese friend to go with her to see the flat. (I know that it sucks to do that, because it’s so unfair that people are being this rude to you)
