I asked some locals what they wanted tourist to know before visiting their country!
1. “Taiwanese people are super friendly towards foreigners, but we don’t hug when we greet. We do shake hands when it’s business related. But most of the time people just smile and say hi when meeting friends or family members. Some girls feel uncomfortable when their guy friends hug them.”
2. “Public transportation is well developed in Taiwan. However, many drivers don’t follow the traffic rules. Don’t expect cars, taxis or buses to yield to pedestrians. Be extremely careful when crossing the street.”
