Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Where to move to?

Postby ganboyi » 06 May 2012, 13:23

I have been in Taipei for almost three years now. I currently am living near Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall towards Bade Rd. I would like to move to somewhere that is cheaper (about 20k per month or below - I'm living alone but would ideally like two bed rooms, 1 to act as a bedroom the other as a study for writing) and hopefully quiet, with some green (an old building would be great) though still relatively accessible to where I work which is on Xinyi and Jianguo South Rd. It would be good if I could get to work via a 45 minute bike ride, if that is impossible than the MRT I know may be an option. Does such a place exist? Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Try 南港區 near 中央研究院.

I've never been there but I heard there's lotsa green and close to Nankang (Nangang) MRT station (end of blue line).

The housing price is cheaper there based on 南港區 pricing and so I think you should be able to find a 2-bed apt for less than $20k/mo.

I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell.
