Traveling to Taipei


Hi everyone,

I am considering a move there for the future from the US and wanted to get some advice about two things. I'll soon be coming for 9 days to get to know Taipei City a bit and explore.

First thing is what method of currency is best for short trips there? I was told cash isn't ideal to bring and that banks can charge a lot of foreign transactions fees. Is there anyway to avoid opening a credit card for this?

Secondly, I am bringing an unlocked phone for travel. What company would it be best to purchase or get a sim card from if I'd like to use internet along with voice calls? It is an Apple iPhone if that is helpful. Xiéxié!
