friddle replied to the thread Retired. Not seeking work. How about Taichung? on the Taiwan forum:
joskel initially posted:
Our interest is not in working in Taiwan. We are retired and are looking for a place to live, at least for some several months. NOT interested in buying a place to live; not interested in working. We would like to be in a city with good services (i. e., the light comes on nearly every time the switch is flipped; water flows when the tap is opened). Being able to interact with others of our age and language from time to time would be great. Learning Chinese is beyond me. My Chinese friends here have tried to teach me some over the past year and have recommended I study something else. Taipei seems to be larger and more spread out than we would want to deal with daily. But Taichung seems to be a more manageable size and is close enough to the capital when we would want to go to the symphony, or some other special event, or to fly somewhere else for a time. Any full-time retirees living in Taichung willing to offer input and advice? TIA Joseph

Thanks for the input, Steve. We will be in Taiwan most of April. We arrive in Kaohsiung on the 9th and will work our way northward checking out the major metropolitan areas for the possibility of a longer stay.

Divadoll initially posted:
Hello I am very free spirited African American female who has raised her children and divorced looking for an experience to treasure. My concern is... aside from normal culture shock I don't want to have to deal with or worry about racism. I'm very seriously considering coming to Taiwan to teach English with the Hess School. Will my dark skin be problematic?
ruimeng replied most recently with:
Sadly racism exists everywhere in the world. However Taiwan is a good choice. There is Less racism here than any other country I have ever traveled to (and 1000 times better than mainland China). Hope you decide to come and have a wonderful time. :)

Expat Report Review of Taipei American School in Taipei, Taiwan was published
Review-of-Taipei American School
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
School has world class facilities. All school sections well funded for bricks and mortar. Very impressive arts. Have been sadly behind in athletics for years. Now trying to raise that bar with the typical Asian mentality of throwing money and objectives to the program. (Continue)

adminee posted Semi-Retired in Taiwan? on the Taiwan forum:
A journalist working on an article for a popular finance publication is interested in connecting a few Americans over age 60 who have moved abroad after retiring from careers in the States and either found part-time jobs, started businesses or transformed their former careers into remote consulting gigs. We've talked with her about general trends in overseas retirement. She would also like to speak with a few retirees who fit this description. If you are interested, please e-mail me at betsy@expatexchange.com -- tell me a little about yourself and your job and how the journalist can reach you. Thank you! Betsy Burlingame Expat Exchange
