KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

OFFICIALLY THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA

Though the ROC Government doesn't claim to represent the mainland, this remains the official name of Taiwan... weird, I know.

OFFICIAL LANGUAGE - MANDARIN

CURRENCY - NEW TAIWAN DOLLAR

SAYING HELLO - "NI HAO"

Pronounced "Knee-how"

THANK YOU - "XIÉ-XIÉ"

Pronounced "Syeh-syeh"... and said REALLY quickly!

DON'T MISS - BITOU CAPE (OR ANY OF THE NORTH COAST, REALLY).

Taiwan's North Coast is absolutely beautiful, and easily accessed from Taipei. Definitely make time for a day trip to explore this region. Read more about my Taiwan explorations here.

MUST EATS - STREET FOOD!!!

Head to one of the many night markets for cheap, and delicious, Taiwanese cuisine.

MUST HAVES - EASY CARD (OR MRT PASS)

You can get a prepaid MRT card... or get an easy card and charge it as you go. Like Korea's T-Money card, and Hong Kong's Octopus card, this is used for all public transit.
