Getting around Taipei

Taipei is a modern city and its infrastructure reflects this. You will find this city easy to navigate and can access all corners with ease. Two modern international airports welcome you and you will find yourself quickly whisked away by the high-speed trains that serve them. The city itself has a great Mass Rapid Transit system known as the MRT, easily accessible stations throughout the city clearly marked in English and with English announcements too, so you shouldn’t get lost. As the studying of English is compulsory in all Taiwanese schools, you will find most people will have a grasp of basic English skills. However, they are not fluent and you should maybe go to your new temporary home with some Mandarin and/or Minnan. This should make your stay in Taipei smoother and easier all round.

Traffic as with all major metropolitan cities can be difficult, to say the least. And it is always advisable to try and get a place close to your place of work, or certainly on or close to an MRT stop, if possible.
