Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

Hi there

Me and my girlfriend have just moved to Taichung and we were wondering if anyone can give us information on the following

Gyms for me
Tanning salons (those sun bed things) for her
Decent hairdressers who speak English for us both

We live in the north of the city off Chung de road

Thank you!

Tanning stuff? HA! Not in Taiwan, the whiter the better! I really doubt you will find anything like that.

Just google gyms, beitun district I do not use them, but there is one near you. There is also worlds gym in a few locations.

Only hairdresser I know charges between 125-250 USD a cut, you want his info?

There is a tanning salon in a this little market street called "taichung Xi-men-ding". I'm not sure what it's called, but it's on the right just after you enter the courtyard. Here is the google map location. 24.15269,120.686735 I have no idea what they charge or their hours because I have not used their services.

I know this was posted a while back, but do you know if that hairdresser is still around and would be able to cut medium length curly hair?

If they're not around does anyone know of any other English speaking hairdressers who would be able to do a decent job?

Thanks :)
