Hi it looks like I’m heading to Taichung on 1st February, waiting on contract then booking my flights. I’m 33 Australian male (6’8") not that the height matters but in China it seemed to attract attention.
I have been employed by WISE Wagor school in Xitun District.
Is this a nice area to live? Is it cheap to rent in this area or are there places near by better to rent in?
I’m bringing my road bike, any good places to ride to?
Ideas to meet locals and expats?
I enjoy playing some basketball, any courts worth checking out? Not really sure how popular it is in Taiwan, was crazy in China when I was there for 6 months.
Any tips you have for new comers? I’ll be staying at the school for the first month till I get paid then I’ll try get an apartment. Is it possible to negotiate paying the 2 months deposit off over time?
