Things I hate about living in Taiwan

I have now been living as a British expat in Taiwan for 6 months now – time seems to be flying by! As a result, I think I have a pretty rounded picture of life in Taiwan as a foreigner, its good bits, and it’s bad bits.

I’ve filmed a video letting you know about all the inconveniences of living in Taipei, even outside of how difficult it can be finding vegan groceries here, and you can watch the new video below.

I’ll be releasing a video next week on all the ways I think Taiwan is great too, so make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel and follow me on my blog to be updated when that comes out. But let me know, have you visited Taiwan? What was your experience like? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    Usually people buy dehumidifier for their house and if you do not live in Taipei, you don’t have to pay for your garbage bags. There is vegan supermarket in Taiwan, you can visit Leezen and they also provide website but without English version. Maybe you can visit the supermarket next time. Sorry for your inconvenience. Hope you will visit other cities in Taiwan for the next time, perhaps winter will be better. You can hike the mountain and stay few days, it will be chill.

        Hi, it’s okay. I understand. It’s better to hear something different rather than just compliments. Taiwan does have something to improve. And I hope these setbacks won’t stop you for the next trip.
