http://www.taiwanfriend.com Meeting People and Making Friends in Taipei Expats moving to Taiwan should expect some level of culture shock when it comes to the business culture in Taiwan, although in other areas of Taiwanese culture, the country looks to the West more than to its Asian neighbors. Taiwan does have its surprises – especially when it comes to business, dating and socialising – but for the most part if you keep a positive attitude, you’ll probably assimilate quite well. Western ideas of personal space, relationships, free time and hobbies are understood, if not always practiced. It’s easier to make in friends in Taiwan than you might think. East Asian and Western foreigners alike often report that they have an easier time building and maintaining local friendships than in other countries. The local level of English is pretty good and there are clubs, organisations and events that allow you to meet more locals if you’re willing to try.
