Gettting Around Taiwan
The Republic of China (Taiwan) allows certain passport holders visa-free entry for tourism, visiting friends or relatives, social visits, doing business, attending exhibitions, fact finding, and international exchanges.
In order to be approved for visa-free entry, make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months (3 months for Japanese), can prove you do not intend on staying indefinitely in Taiwan (either by a flight reservation or some type of itinerary), and have no criminal record or other extenuating circumstances in the ROC.
The New Taiwan dollar is the official currency of Taiwan (Republic of China). The currency code is TWD and is commonly abbreviated as NT$ or simply $ in front of the amount, or a Chinese character 元 (pronounced yuán) following the amount.
For example, prices could either be displayed as: "NT$30" or "30元".
Current exchange rates are listed below.
The official name of the New Taiwan dollar in Chinese is 新台幣 (新台币 in simplified Chinese), pronounced Xīntáibì.
A common question that visitors may ask when visiting Taiwan is "if Taiwan is Taiwan, and China is China, then why do license plates say 臺灣省"?
This question is actually very easy to answer!
What is the Taipei Bus?
Taiwan's public transit system is extremely well developed, especially in Taipei where it covers practically every possible destination with relatively few transfers. Along with the Taipei MRT, the bus system accepts the EasyCard and provides an excellent, convenient way to get around the city.
Driving in Taiwan can be a fun, but sometimes stressful, experience! While driving is the best way to visit more out of reach areas such as Nantou, Hualien, and Taitung, those visiting Taipei should stick to public transit since driving and parking within the city can be difficult.
Called 預付卡, yù fù kǎ, prepaid SIM cards are easily accessible in Taiwan for a relatively low startup cost. SIM cards can be purchased in city shops, at the airport, or in advance online with a simple pickup at the airport. Getting a data plan is easy, but make sure to check all the available plans before choosing.
