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.

Would you consider living nearby Shandao Temple Station?

Hello,

We have an older apartment that we are in the process of fixing up. The question we have for the community here is, would you consider living in the Shandao Temple area? We're fascinated with the number of units listed in the Da'an, Xinyi, Tianmu, Wanhua areas, but there doesn't seem to be any housing in this area. We're wondering if it's work our investment to revitalizing our old place for rental.

Thanks,
David

Yes, I would. That's a really convenient location. You can't get any more central than that. What's nice about Shandao Temple station is that it's on the blue line only, so the crowd is much smaller than the nearby stations, which are transfer stations that always have large crowds. Shandao is relatively more residential but has the convenience of a central location, and Huashan park is of course another big plus for that area. You should be able to rent it out without any problem as long as the rent is not exorbitant.

As Incubus said, it's got the park. It's a brief walk away from entertainment -several movie theathers, nice bars, Zhongshan shopping area. There are several supermarkets. Ample sidewalks, relatively quiet while close to downtown. How much do you want? :D

Downtown, with an MRT station right there. Close to lots of stuff (train station area, Linsen Rd., Huashan Park), but relatively quiet in itself. Great location, I say.
