Taipei is a thriving, expanding and bustling cultural metropolis and one of the most important economic hubs in Southeast Asia. With the ever-present shadow of Taipei 101, one of the world's tallest skyscrapers, looming over the city's business, Taipei is a symbol of Asia's rise to economic powerhouse status. With this in mind, job opportunities for expats are in abundance, especially in the business sector where expats are often considered for high level management positions. English language teaching is another area of rapid growth, so English speaking expats of any career path (as long as you have a degree) can usually find employment. Taiwanese culture is an exciting and oftentimes chaotic one, but with much peace and beauty — especially in the countryside or more suburban areas surrounding Taiwan. Despite being thoroughly modern, many parts of the city still have a richly traditional feel and expats can soak up the culture with ease.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Khobar (Eastern Prov.) or Jeddah, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Fully immersing oneself in a new culture can be something of a difficult experience, so for that much needed down time when you want to relax with a like-minded person in a familiar environment, InterNations is there for you. With numerous members around the globe and a whole host of events (from casual, social drinking get-togethers to business networking nights and foodie groups) on offer through our Taipei Groups, there really is no better way to meet and make friends with other expats in Taipei than with InterNations.
