I am about to start my first job in Taiwan at the end of November, I’ll be living in Hsinchu, I’ve been trying to get as much information as possible on the place however sites such as the lonely traveller, Wikipedia and looking at the place on Google Earth only offer a bit of an insight and are either very statistical or aimed at travellers.
I was wondering if any of you living there, or people who have previously lived there, could give me a bit of information about the city. Things that you don’t learn till you’ve lived there a while such as the best places to eat (on an English teacher’s budget), bars and other forms of entertainment, shopping centres ect. I’d be happy with any and all information as it’s not as easy to find details on as Taipei. Apologies if one of these posts already exists, I had a quick search but couldn’t find one.
Also just noticed that the forum changed my title to Xinzhu, I did not realise this was the same place, this would explain why I struggled to find posts, I’ll be reading those now but still if anybody has anything to add.
