@koh_ivana spent one semester in Taipei at National Chengchi University & she shared with us the 3 best and worst experiences about her exchange! 🇹🇼
✨Beautiful scenery: In Taiwan, it doesn't matter which city or island you go to, it always has a lot to offer. And the scenery is beautiful everywhere you go.
✨People: Taiwanese people are very friendly and nice, they will always help you when you need it. Once I was on a tour in Mandarin with my friend and one guy noticed we don't understand and started translating for us.
✨Prices: When it comes to cooked food, the prices are very low. You can get lunch for 2-4€. So you don't have to cook at all. And the taste is great, too. You can also get bubble tea or juices for very low prices and they are everywhere.
✖️Public Transport (mainly buses): When I first arrived, getting the hang of buses was difficult. You always have to signal to the bus drivers for them to stop. It seems like you have to get on and off before it even stops and sometimes you get lost. Even Taiwanese people say, buses are difficult for them.
✖️Airport Immigration: You have to go through immigration at the airport and the queues are usually long. It can take around an hour.
✖️Weather: Sometimes it is too hot and when it's also humid, it's even worse. Taiwan was one of the hottest Asian countries.
