I’ve just moved over to Hualien for a job and to enjoy the natural scenery. I’m having a bit of a challenge finding a very nice place to live. I’m quite suprised by the prices so far (a bit higher than Tainan), but will get over it. The problem is, I’ve been seeing some real dumps that are right in the middle of Hualien city with the noise and pollution. I’m trying to find a place either by myself or with roommates which is a bit out of the muck and allows a little more peace and at least a bit of green, or some view of the mountains or ocean. How do I go about finding such a place? So far, I’ve tried agencies and connections with limited success.
Does anyone have any suggestions or leads? Thanks so much for any assistance.
