Teach English in Northern Taiwan

Teach English in Northern Taiwan

Teach English in Taipei

Taipei is truly a 24hr city with all the shops, restaurants and convenience you’d expect of a capital city. Whilst being a modern city Taipei retains a rich cultural heritage, with temples and night markets nestled among newer surroundings. Nature is also on your doorstep with the teahouses of Maokong, foothills of Yangmingshan and the riverside of Danshui

Teach English in Taoyuan

Taoyuan has pubs, nightclubs and KTV hotspots for those who wish to have a fun night out. There is also a wide variety of restaurants serving traditional Taiwanese food, as well as other cuisines.

Teach English in Hsinchu

Hsinchu is home to a number of museums.  The photography museum in the centre of town, the glass museum (where you can blow your own glass) and Guqifeng museum where, housed beneath an enormous red statue of a Daoist deity, you can peruse artefacts from ancient China. Guqifeng is also close to the peaceful 18 Peaks Park, a great place to go walking, jogging, or (if you’re up early enough!) you can join in with people doing tai-chi.

Teach English in Taichung

Being located in central Taiwan, Taichung is perfectly placed for visiting the high mountains of the Central Mountain Range as well as the beautiful Sun Moon Lake. In fact within the city limits there are several hiking trails ranging from a gentle stroll to steep slopes that require ladders to climb. The city has a science museum, art museum and botanical gardens. Not far from Taichung is the old town of Lukang which has some of the best preserved buildings in Taiwan and a huge variety of traditional snacks. In the evening, Taichung has a lively nightlife and attracts people from all over central Taiwan. There are a number of good clubs and foreign owned bars. The good weather means relaxing at a Taiwanese style beer garden is a good and cheap option.

Teach English in Southern Taiwan

Teach English in Kaohsiung

Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s second-largest city and has a wealth of interesting sights and hangout spots. Perhaps the most famous attraction is Lotus Lake, a recreational area to the north of the city, accessible by MRT. There is also an elegant Confucian temple on one side of the lake. It’s well worth visiting if you have an interesting in Chinese and Taiwanese culture. The Sizihwan bay area is extremely beautiful, with a nice harbour where you can watch the sun go down and an old, well-preserved British consulate building up on a hill which you can visit. Qijin Island, a thin strip of land which hosts Kaohsiung’s main beach, is also a lovely place to while away an afternoon and eat some excellent, fresh seafood. This is a 5 minute ferry ride away from Gushan harbour in Sizihwan. If you are into nature and hiking, you can head to Shoushan (‘Longevity Mountain’- referred to as Monkey Mountain by foreigners), a huge hill which dominates the western side of the city. There are wooden walkways which make getting around the mountain less of a challenge, and you will see dozens of Formosan macaque monkeys, a Taiwanese native species, in the trees and on the paths.

Teach English in Tainan

Kaohsiung and Tainan are located in an amazing location if you want to explore the south of Taiwan (and why wouldn’t you?). To the north you have Tainan, a picturesque city with a wealth of Taiwanese history and culture. To the east you have Pingtung County and the Maolin Scenic Area, which boasts breath-taking mountains and a number of idyllic waterfalls which you can visit if you find someone who knows the way. And a little further south is Kenting, a sun-drenched tropical paradise where you will find the very best beaches Taiwan has to offer.

Teach English in Northern Taiwan

Northern Taiwan is the island’s most temperate climate. With hot summers and cool winters – and humidity throughout – the weather can feel pretty extreme. But the region is home to most of Taiwan’s largest urban areas – Taipei City, New Taipei City, Taoyuan, Hsinchu, Yilan, and Keelung. With all the big cities, there are a lot of opportunities in Northern Taiwan, but there is also lots of competition and its cities are often more expensive.

Taiwan’s northern region is ideal for those looking for the convenience of big-city living like a large expat community, availability of international goods, and multiculturalism. Plus, there are plenty of natural escapes – especially in cities like Hsinchu and Yilan – but it can be pretty hectic. Of course, that means there’s never a dull moment and lots to see and do. The rest of island is never far away and Taiwan’s biggest international airport is in Taoyuan, making Northern Taiwan the perfect base of operations for further travel and exploration.

Teach English in Central Taiwan

Teach English in Central Taiwan

Central Taiwan comprises of Taichung in the west, Hulien in the east, and Chiayi toward the south, each with its own charms and climate. Taichung is a large city often called the “California of Taiwan” due to its milder weather and lots of sun. Hualien is rainier due to proximity to both sea and mountains, but it is close to some truly spectacular natural spaces in the nearby mountain ranges and gorges. Chiayi is a smaller city at the base of Taiwan’s tallest mountain, Yushan. In the middle of all of it is Nantou, home of Taiwan’s scenic Sun Moon Lake.

Central Taiwan has a much slower pace than the north with its cities separated by mountains and lakes. There has also been less international influence, so you’ll be looking at a more “authentic” experience of Taiwan. But each city still has lots to see and do, with amazing food and active expat communities. Plus cost of living is much lower, even in the cities, so expect to bank even more of your teacher salary.

Teach English in Southern Taiwan

Teach English in Southern Taiwan

South Taiwan is home to Tainan and Kaohsiung, as well as smaller but notable communities of Taitung and Kenting. The weather is warm to hot all year round and boasts some truly amazing coastlines. Tainan has some of Taiwan’s most spectacular historical sites preserved from numerous historical periods and Kaohsiung is a thriving port city with an active international community, great infrastructure, and some of the best seafood around. Taitung is a slower-moving smaller city, but it’s ideal for the outdoorsy type. And while Kenting doesn’t have much going on business-wise, its beaches and national park are a spectacular getaway.

If you’re looking to learn Mandarin, the south of Taiwan may not be the best option as Taiwanese is more commonly spoken. But it’s an incredible cultural experience. The weather is beautiful, the ocean is nearby, and there’s a little more room to breathe in the cities than the north. If you can stand the summer heat, working in southern Taiwan is like living in your favourite vacation spot.
