Good points and to a degree understandable, sometimes there's no place like home. However, I'm from Vancouver and I feel Vancouver is much nicer than Taipei and certainly nicer than Taoyuan county. But, I certainly don't tell this to every Taiwanese aquaintence I make here and if I did state that view, it would be a single statement made one time instead of a multi hour rant (after all that's what Forumosa is for)

So just to clarify, I shouldn't worry too much about the exit visa then?

There's a section of various articles on CNN's website right now. Just a heads up.

Edit: had a better look. Nothing too in depth. You can also find it in their "Eye On" section

Eh, it's not sensationalist. I have a friend who did Peace Corps there for 3 years. She told me numerous stories of violence against foreigners. IN some instances just walking up to a foreigner on the street and breaking her kneecaps or, in the case of a foreigner male, ganging up and fighting dirty (hitting you from the back, etc.)

YMMV but be forewarned.
