Most expats who've lived in Taiwan appreciate how friendly the people are.
I personally find Taiwanese to be outgoing and sociable.
You wouldn't be able to do that in Hong Kong or Japan. Not only that but Taiwanese women are so sweet that they'll invite you to things too! Aside from the rain in Taipei the weather can be very nice.
When you're with a Taiwanese woman chances are that her family and herself will be open-minded towards interracial dating (this is something that you might not find in Korea - for example.) So why do we love Taiwan? One thing you can appreciate about Taiwanese women is that they speak English (for the most part.) Granted - if you go to Taiwan's capital 'Taipei' you'll notice it a lot more.
If you find yourself in the smaller cities (like Kaohshiung or Taichung) it might not be as available.
The city already has its fair share of expats, but this certainly isn’t Thailand. If you like to party and don’t want to learn an Asian language, then Taipei could be the perfect spot for you.
Population: Nearly 3 million people in the city proper.
