Hello all! I’m 26yr old male born and raised in the states and just moved back to Taipei for a job.

However, I am fluent in mandarin and have been visiting Taipei since I was 4. So I know the city pretty well and wouldn’t mind acting as tour guide to anyone new here! Please feel free to contact me via PM if you need a friend! I’d be more than willing to share the knowledge I have about this great city over a beer (or two).


Hi, i’m currently now based in Taichung. If any of you guys wanna get together and have a coffee. Do hook a brother up!



I’ve just joined Forumosa in the last half-hour…thankfully there are no blinking lights to confuse me further as how to operate this thing :smiley: …I am looking for people in Tainan, Chiayi, or Gaoxiong to hang out with. Especially other foreign women. Just want others to talk to.


Hey guys! I’m in Taiwan for about two months or so though I am contemplating due to family issues whether to apply to an university here and move back in the future.
I’m currently in Taipei and though having been born and raised in the US, my Mandarin is decent enough to hold conversation without being detected as a foreigner unless it starts getting complicated. <_<
Either way, I’m down for a community event or just a coffee somewhere in the area as I’m not very familiar with Taipei outside of my district (which is like Civic Blvd/Nanjing Lu).


I’m a ABC visiting Taipei by myself for a month. Looking for some people to hang out and go to clubs with. I am 24 years old grad student. (Male) I am really up for anything. Staying with family for the whole time is kind of boring. If anyone is up for bars, clubs, basketball or anything let me know!

28 yrs old male here. I was born here in Taiwan but spent most of life in the States/Canada. I really dont know anyone here outside of my family and I hope this attempt can salvage my dying social life. I’m a mostly sporty person but I am willing to step out of my comfort zone to learn new things. PM me, email me or whatever! :slight_smile:

Hey! I’m in Taipei for the rest of the summer and looking to hang out in and around the city. I’m 22, from the US, and I’ve got beginner/moderate Chinese. If anyone wants to grab a coffee or knows of a place worth exploring, let me know! My line’s ‘granthertel’ or you can just message me here. Looking forward to getting to know some of you!


Hey, I’m 24 female, spent past few years studying in UK and recently started working in Taipei. I’m quite active and up for anything fun/randoms - just want to meet some new friends really :slight_smile:

Hey! I’m 29 male, ABC, born and raised in SoCal looking to meet some new friends to hang out with in Taipei. I speak native English and conversational Chinese and really need to improve on my reading ability so I am down for language exchange too. I am a very laid back guy who is into food, exploring the city, riding with a moped group, outdoors activities (hiking, basketball), and grabbing some drinks.

PM me or find me on Line : PeonInChief1


Hey everyone, I’m a 22 yr old Taiwanese/Korean guy that has lived in Cali/Texas/Virginia/Florida for the last 12 years. I was born in Taiwan and I can speak Chinese pretty well.

Hello everyone! I am a 33 year old Dutch male and I will be staying in Taiwan/Taipei at least until the end of June next year. I speak English, Dutch and also relatively well some German. I am a PhD candidate in the field of history and am currently an affiliated researcher at Academia Sinica. My topic concerns 16th century Chinese military history in combination with intellectual history. I am looking for people to hang out with, have a drink, get some food, going sightseeing across the island, hiking in the Taiwanese nature. I love talking about history and current political world events, not just confined to my own narrow field of research :wink: I am also a bassplayer, so jamming/making music would also be an option. Furthermore, I am also interested in a language exchange, as my reading comprehension of modern Chinese is ok enough for research, but I want to improve my listening comprehension and speaking fluency, which are quite poor in comparison. PM me if you would like to meet up! Cheers!
