Make Taiwanese friends
This isn’t exactly commonplace advice, but Taiwanese people are known for their friendly nature and kind hospitality, and definitely great friends to be with. And when we say friends, we mean actual friends. Not just the ones you added on Facebook and forget they even existed.
Exchange contacts, keep in touch, and the next time you’re in Taiwan, you’ll have someone bring you around to the latest and most “worth it” places to eat and shop, and to meet their friends too. Some might even get you to forego hotels and just stay at their homes.
Of course, do the same when they come to Singapore and we dare say you have made a friend for life.
