    il be flying to taipei in october and il be staying for a week. question is, does taiwan have free wifi everywhere? or shud i get a simcard/pocket wifi for my convenience?

    Most definitely get an Easy Card! A few more things to add:

    1. You can buy stuff with it at convenience stores (7-Eleven, FamilyMart, etc). You can recharge there as well. Last I checked, supermarkets like Carrefour don't do that (although I believe I saw an EasyCard reader at a 全聯).

    2. You can pay for cabs, though I have had a cabbie told me that he would prefer cash, since that way he doesn't have to take the receipt back to his dispatch if he needed some quick cash to grab some snacks, etc.

    3. You can definitely pay for train tickets as you would on the Taipei Metro, but (last time I checked) you can only do that with the slowest commuter trains. So trips like Taipei to, say, Keelung, are applicable. THSR (Taiwan High Speed Rail) still needs its own ticket, and longer journeys (e.g. Taipei to Hualien) still needs tickets from a booth/kiosk. This is especially relevant for travellers who stays in Taipei but would like to go visit other cities (and particularly those in the east coast).

    4. There is credit card integration with EasyCard (I.e. you can apply for a credit card with EasyCard functionalities at banks). Basically, your "EasyCard", which happens to be your credit card, will come with some money charged already, and it automatically takes money out of your bank account when it needs recharging. If this applies to you, you probably don't need to know this. But hey thought I'd share.

    5. In a similar vein as #4, some schools/ public entities (e.g. NTU) made their student/ employee IDs into EasyCards, and there are student discount EasyCards available. Again, if this applies to you, you probably already have one of the cards.

    It was impossible to find size 12 shoes in Taiwan. I would tell the store clerk i was size 12 and they would look at me like i had a horn coming out my head. Biggest size i saw was 9.5

    I recommend exchanging money in the airport as you arrive. If I recall correctly, you can exchange anything below USD $5000 for New Taiwan Dollars, without having to fill out any of the forms you would have to if you exchanged money at a bank in one of the cities. (Also, only the major banks can exchange money.)

    The reason that Taiwan is still a cash society is because all the street vendors and Ma & pa shops simply don't want to pay any taxes. Since taking cash leaves no paper trais. That is how cheap Taiwanese are.

    During the past I always visited Taiwan in October or November. The days are much cooler. Summer days in Taiwan are unbearable. The worst thing about visiting Taiwan is that where ever you go you are bound to be drown in the human sea.

    Hello, i have two questions. it´s not specific about this video. 😀
    I think about to work in Taiwan or China after my study as an engineer.
    Do you have experience or other foreigners experience about which place is better to work and live, Taiwan or China?
    I learn currently simplified chinese. It´s difficult to learn traditional chinese after it?

    I am currently traveling in Taiwan. I found easiest way to get cash is use the ATM at any of the Family Marts. They don't charge any fee for withdraw for my Visa debit card issued in the US. 7-Eleven will charge a fee for my Visa debit card. Note: Your bank might charge a fee for using 3rd party ATM.
