What do I need to know about living in Taiwan?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Taiwan, they said:

"Make friends. Keep yourself busy doing what you intend to do in Taiwan. If English is your first language, you might want to teach. There's good money in teaching kids or adults in language centers called bushibans or in one on ones. Enjoy the difference in culture," added another expat in Taichung.
