Studying in Taiwan? 3 Hacks to Help You Make the Most of Your Time

Taiwan is quickly becoming a hub for students pursuing a higher degree in computer science and business management. Universities like the National Taiwan University and National Chiao Tung University are offering their courses to international students and they come with some advantages, including lower living costs and tuition fees.

Taiwan is a fascinating country to explore too. If you are studying in Taiwan, particularly in places like Taipei City and Hsinchu, you can make the most of your time with these five hacks we are about to discuss in this article. Let’s get started, shall we?

Go Biking
Taiwan is the perfect country for biking. The gorgeous natural scenery, plenty of biking trails to choose from, and the overall culture of biking to virtually every destination makes owning a good bike in Taiwan incredibly rewarding.

You can, for instance, enjoy a long bike ride along the Tamsui River, which spreads across New Taipei City. There is a bike lane lining the river from end to end, and every part of it is beautiful to explore. Taipei is also building some beautiful riverside park areas in different parts of the city. 

Touring bikes like the Pure Cycles Gravel Adventure are the best. They are perfect for exploring both urban and rural areas and they are built to last. They make a great investment if you are spending a few years studying in Taiwan.

A Culinary Adventure
Sticking with adventurous things to do, you can also go on a culinary adventure around Taipei. The city is home to some of the best restaurants in the world, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune to eat well in Taiwan.

Taipei is also famous for its markets, street food vendors, and budget restaurants that will pamper you to the max. You can start your adventure by visiting Gabee Coffee, which is situated in the Songshan District. This is where you will find a solid competitor to the world’s best coffees.

The Raohe Night Market is another must-visit. It is one of the oldest markets and bazaars in Taiwan. It is also home to the famous black pepper buns with pork. Prepare for a long line if you want to give it a try, but don’t worry, the tasty buns are definitely worth the wait.

Awesome Nightlife
We really cannot talk about things to do in Taiwan without talking about its nightlife. As a student, knowing how to unwind is as important as knowing how to study effectively. Fortunately, you have plenty of places to try if you are in Taiwan.

Triangle is where most international students gather on weekends. It is very close to the Yuanshan MRT Station and parties here are always exciting. Besides, it is the perfect scene for connecting with fellow international students in Taipei.

Another great budget option is The Wave Club, which is also famous among younger audiences. If you are on a tight budget and you want to find an open bar that serves great drinks and finger foods, this is the place to go. The Ladies Night offering is particularly interesting.

Lastly, we have the legendary Bar 45. This is one of the oldest clubs in Taipei, just minutes away from the National Taiwan Normal University. Foreign and local students love coming to Bar 45 for its soothing ambiance; it is perfect for small talks after a long day studying.

Of course, you can go on your culinary adventure or visit these awesome nightlife spots on a bike. Bike rentals are an option in the major cities, especially with services like Youbike widely available. Studying in Taiwan will be a lot of fun now that you know the top three hacks to help you make the most of your time.
