Taipei is truly a 24hr city with all the shops, restaurants and convenience you’d expect of a capital city.

Nature is also on your doorstep with the teahouses of Maokong, foothills of Yangmingshan and the riverside of Danshui

Teach English in Central Taiwan
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.
