Spotted that too, but I was feeling too East Coast to mention it.
It's raining again here.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.

Is this really true?

I'm willing to bet that the total number of foreigners living in other places in Taiwan are around the same magnitude, if not greater than, the total number living in Taipei alone (although I don't have the numbers).


Well, you might just have lost your bet! :wink:

It depends if by "foreigners" you mean westerners - which I guess is the majority of the posters here - or you also include south-east Asians.

The number of westerners outside Taipei and New Taipei City is rather insignificant compared to other cities. Except with Americans, all the other English-speaking countries have roughly the same numbers of expats in Taipei and New Taipei City than in all the other counties combined. It's pretty close for Japan as well. And for countries such as France or Germany, that's actually closer to 70% and 60%.

Then, there are nationalities like Thai or Indonesians who spread a bit everywhere, but still remain largely more numerous up north.
