Living in Taidong, Hualian, or Yilan
~ ~ References and Resources for people who have just moved to, or are thinking of moving to, the eastern counties ~ ~
The population of Taidong (Taitung), Hualian (Hualien), and Yilan (Ilan, Gilan) taken together is only about 5% of the population of Taiwan, and there aren’t many foreigners living and working here. This thread is meant to serve as an easy access point for relevant information about the eastern counties, and i am not only including local references here (i.e., links to various related threads on Forumosa), but also information from government websites and first-hand experience.
Do you known any thing that should be included here? Please don’t hesitate to post it… !
(If you’d rather like me to add your information to an existing post, just send me a PM.)
