Hi, I am looking for any info about living in Taoyuan. Would love to hear from people living there.
Thanks for your time

Consider working and living somewhere else.
You couldn’t pay me to live there.

Taoyuan is 45 minutes by car from Taipei. I have some friends who own nice homes in that area. I think it is a decent place to live if you want to buy or rent a bigger house for your dollar. I think the problem will be finding something to do in your free time. If you’re going to be mobile and don’t mind the commute to greener social pastures, it should be fine.

Gangsters + Punks + Prostitutes + Betel Nut + Jet engine noise = Taoyuan.

Taoyuan City or County?

Taoyuan County here. Not as bad as what some would like you to believe.

if I was an english teacher, I could think of far nicer places in TW to be teaching put it that way…it’s got three advantages as far as i can make out, it’s cheap to rent, and it’s near the airport, and you can get up to the mountains in daxi and further in 30~40 minutes…also if you want to know modern taiwanese culture, this is the place to be, to get down and dirty…
