The only Orthodox church in Taiwan is Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, in Xindian. Its priest is Fr. Jonah, a heiromonk of Mt. Athos. I believe they have a group in Taizhong (with a reader, but no priest, unless Fr. Jonah visits) but not Tainan. Anyway, check with them:

"The verbs used in the most important Pali Suttas on mindfulness – the Satipaṭṭhāna and Mahā-Satipaṭṭhāna Suttas (M no. and D no. respectively) – are assasati and passasati, i.e.’ inhale’ and ‘exhale’. The same verbs are used in the Kāyagatāsati Sutta and Ānāpānasati Sutta (M no. 118 and 119 respectively). Although the Ānāpānasati Sutta uses the nouns āna and apāna in its title, it reverts to assasati and passasati in the discourse itself. The author of this article should try reading the Pali texts cited rather than drawing inferences from the title of a single text. Had he done so, he would see that the Pali texts prescribe no such thing as farting meditation." --"Mr. Dangle," responding to Eisel Mazard on New Mandala

Here's another Orthodox Church in Taipei that opened recently. They have services in Chinese, Russian, and English.

Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn't come here of my own accord, and I can't leave that way.
Whoever brought me here will have to take me home.

Location: Down the road from Da-an Park, in the middle of a crowded market that kinda smells like fish.
