My girlfriend and I have just arrived in Taiwan and are preparing to train to teach English as a foreign language for the next year. We’re currently unsure where we’ll be living, however we’ve just checked into our hotel where we’ll be staying for the next couple of weeks.
One thing we’ve noticed straight away is that many of the buildings including our hotel room seem to have a bit of a musty smell to them. This is of particular concern as my girlfriend developed pneumonia from living in a moldy house two years or so ago, and we definitely don’t want to reexperience that. While I’m not sure if must/mildew will have the same effect, I just thought I’d ask whether this must is a common thing in Taiwan? Is it likely that whatever apartment we end up in will have must problems?
Thanks in advance!
