Are you going to be doing serious lifting or just light workouts? If you are just going to be doing light workouts, the bicycle gloves or driving gloves you find here should be adequate. Get a pair of close fitting leather gloves at any bicycle shop or auto supply shop. My wife has a pair of lightweight leather cut-off finger gloves for driving. They would be fine for light workouts.

I haven't seen high quality gloves like American Spenco gel gloves here. I've looked for years and never seen any.

You could go to World Gym, formerly 24 fitness and Gold's gym and ask the staff where to get gloves. The World Gym website brags that it's the 4th largest chain in the world. If they can't give you a lead, then ... anyhow, their website lists all their Taiwan locations.
