Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

When I travelled in Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Russia, etc...), I was able to hire advanced students in English as guides. (I hate packaged tours and getting herded around.) Is anyone aware of similar options in Taipei or Tainan? And what would be a fair day's wage?

Seconded. They are fantastic. I used them when a client was here last month for a 4 day trip and they made life a breeze.
