    I love it in taiwan. The people can be really friendly and cranky and there are also the more extreme hooligans. SG ah beng are just leg hair compared to those in taiwan.
    ppl there are generally more civic minded and 'automatic' compared to ppl here. It's one of the place on my list to retire to.

    Taiwan is not on my list. It's because of the China-Taiwan conflict.

    I prefer Scandinavian countries, USA, Switzerland and Japan for retirement.

    The good stuff:
    - People are friendly, made many friends there.
    - Lots of countryside and scenic mountains to visit.
    - Food and fashion are good.
    - Customer service overall more spontaneous. (Try walking into a 7-11 or Starbucks, can
    feel the difference already)
    - 24 hours bookstores
    - People automatically give way on escalators.

    The not-so-good stuff :
    - Pollution can be quite bad in some places.
    - Bureaucratic government services, or any financial services.
    - Little political stability, govt/municpal policies sometimes can be quite confusing.
    - Crime rate is quite high, and quality of police is questionable.

    About Hokkien, they call it Minnanese over there, and actually there are some
    differences in tone. However in Taipei, the preferred spoken language is still
    standard Mandarin. Their use of Mandarin is a bit more sophisticated than what we
    learned in school here, so it takes a bit getting used to. While I was there, I learned
    more about Mandarin in 1 day than what I had in SG for 10 years!

    Yes, a nice place to pick up "proper" Mandarin. I was there for 6 months many years ago and learned a lot of Mandarin from my Taiwanese friends.

    Retire there? Probably not.

    Someone calling for me?

    Only chance for me to be in Taiwan is during NS days. Foodwise and language wise, should not be too difficult to adapt. Has the added bonus of interesting countrysides to visit if when one wishes to escape the city.

    I lived in Taipei for 2 years in 2002 & 2003. I agree with you but I have these to add.

    1. Many people there have guns.
    2. The ktv there is like paradise but averagely NT$2000 per hour in Taipei.
    3. Taiwanese buy car like we go to buy camera. Just bring cash and put inside their pocket.
    4. You will find Kui chi lak (court girl in Taiwanese) there is easy.
    5. Life is more colourful there because Taiwanese are generally creative people.
    6. Chio bu there not dao at all
    7. Betel nut and whispie are something that taste good when take together
    8. Not only cheap cigarettes but free lighters when you buy cigarettes
    9. Nice sceneries
    10. Big lotto payout
    11. Very hard to get around if don't know chinese
    12. TP is never something you need to wory. Just speak English to them and they will let you go.
    13. Nice underground boxing ring
    14. Most of the Taiwanese food taste the same to me.
