Why Taipei?

Taipei is the bustling, cosmopolitan capital of Taiwan. A financial hub for the entire region, Taipei is home to both home-grown brands and international companies. There is no shortage of opportunity here for an enterprising startup or established company from abroad.

Though expensive by local standards, Taipei boasts an excellent quality of life for a very reasonable price. Taiwanese cuisine ranges from street food to haute cuisine, but most is amazing regardless of the price tag. There is lots to see and do in Taipei; you could spend a lifetime exploring its busy thoroughfares and winding alleys and never discover it all. Locals are friendly and welcoming, and an active expat community adds international flair.

Like most big cities in Asia, Taipei has a multinational vibe with a wide variety of food, products, and services available to cater to your needs. The public transportation network is fast, clean, and punctual. There is a very active night scene that includes the usual suspects of bars, pubs, and clubs of all kinds, but it also includes night markets, all-night restaurants, KTV, and more.

But unlike many cities, you’ll never be far from nature and green spaces. With wide river parks snaking through the city and tree-coated mountains sprinkled through the dense urban mass, there’s always a run or a hike within a few kilometres. Some trails – like the Xiangshan Trail – can be either a short jaunt before a nice meal or a full-day affair. And while not on the coast, a day trip to the beach is not out of reach.

Taipei is one of the gems of eastern Asia. Truly, there’s something for everyone in this remarkable modern city.
