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.

Perish the thought that there's peace and quiet all day. Quick, can someone do some sanding or light drilling?!


:lol: Sometimes I have the similar thoughts about the air being too clean. 'Quick, quick, someone burn some ghost money!'

No, it won't. Often the screaming that annoys you is to repair broken windows.

I don't see much of them around Tianmu, there must be a reason for this...


Too many foreigners with shotguns? :ponder:

Military grade tear gas canisters lobbed into an open truck window. Might take care of the screaming too :eek:

Am I the only one that notices a few things:
1) The trucks often have the phone number of the company they are advertising.
2) The trucks move slow enough to follow on foot.
3) Cell phones can be carried and used almost everywhere.

Constantly calling the company, while holding your cell phone to the speaker, might not be useful, but is entertaining.

Trust me.

That's super IF you have an unlimited calling plan.
