We currently live in Singapore, but my husband travels quite frequently to Taipei on business trips. His company’s offices are located in Xizhi, and they would love it if he was there all the time. We have quite a sweet deal in Singapore (living with extended family, great medical care, live-in maid), but with a one year-old son and another baby coming soon we value our time together. Moving to Taipei after the second baby is born is something we are strongly considering.
Our biggest priority is living somewhere that makes it easy for our son to socialise with other children, and for me to not feel completely isolated with two children under the age of two. Someone on Parent Pages referred me to the thread here about Lotus Hill where I read through all 23 pages of it, but no one mentioned quality of life with children there. Do those of you who have children there enjoy it? What do you like or dislike about it?
If Lotus Hill is not the greatest place to live with very young children if you want to socialise with them, where else would you recommend? From looking through Parent Pages it seems as if all the playgroup/meet up types of activities are in the city or Tian Mu. Is there anything like that going on in Xizhi?
If we move to Taipei it will probably be in the summer, so finding a specific apartment is not a pressing issue. I am just trying to do as much research ahead of time as I can before my brain turns to mush due to lack of sleep.
