Relocating to Taiwan to Singapore

Postby katnik » Thu, 09 May 2013 9:24 am

I know its slightly off topic (ie not about Singapore) but I was wondering whether there are any expats recently mvoed here from Taiwan that would be happy to answer questions about where to accommodation / schooling etc in Taiwan. Talking to someone in person about this would be great. Thanks.

I am from Taiwan. Relocated here last year.
Here's the tw expat site that you can check out. i think you can get your answers from this site. http://www.forumosa.com/taiwan/

Assuming you will be going to Taipei. There are 3 main International Schools there (American, European, and Japanese). I am not aware of any other International Schools in other cities. Not sure about the school fees tho.

Rnt is cheaper than here. But of course it varies depending on location and apartment size. Not all apartments have facilities though. I suggest you ask the company hr for help on finding an apartment. Most people don't speak english

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions.

Forgot to add. Many expats l know live in Tianmu in Taipei. I think this is where the International Schools are located. The area is considered more family oriented.

ARR1702,

Have you found living in Singapore to be better or worse than Taiwan? Would you move back to TW if possible? How does the cost of living in Taipei compare to Singapore? Is the workplace culture better in TW or SG (considering a majority of local colleagues in both)?

I have perused Taiwan Expat sites and there is not specific information for expats who have lived in both Singapore and Taipei.

I lived in both Taiwan (1.5 years) and Singapore (muuuuch longer).
What exactly do you want to know?
Expenses are similar, except for rents and car ownership (where Singapore is much higher). Taiwan has space, nature, mountains and countyside, Singapore has everything in English and an almost Western lifestyle.
