Living in the #1 Expat Destination
Enjoy living in Taiwan, as its friendliness, clean air, safety, health care system and the overall quality of life have helped put it above the likes of the U.S., Australia and Hong Kong as the best place in the world for expats to live.
Taipei is a developed, vibrant city of around three million people. Described earlier this year by the International Herald Tribune as the "world's most under-rated capital city", it is not especially large by Asian standards and rather less congested and polluted than most other Asian cities. The city offers many opportunities for recreation, both sporting and cultural. It enjoys many theatres, nightclubs and concert halls, museums and temples, and an active social life can be led. Its restaurants are remarkably varied and offer outstanding cuisine. The mountains surrounding Taipei offer a quick and scenic get-away, and the rest of Taiwan and its surrounding islands are well worth exploring. As a country, Taiwan is also well situated for excursions to other attractive locations in S.E. Asia such as Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia.
The people of Taiwan are extremely friendly, helpful and interested in foreigners. The expatriate population is smaller than in some other Asian cities, but the community is close-knit and welcoming to newcomers. As a city, Taipei is a safe place to live, where teenagers can enjoy a considerable degree of independence. There is excellent public transport, both in Taipei and across the island with the newly opened high-speed rail system. English is widely spoken, particularly among the younger population.
Both campuses are located towards the northern edge of the city.
