There is also a 2 year wait now.

OK, now we have bought land and have everything more or less understood. the 2 year wait in Pingdong is for foreign buyers, meaning from other counties. Right now there are a LOT of city folk coming here to buy farms/mountain land and build a mini mansion on them for a weekend house. I think its to curb that a bit, or appear to anyway. So if you are *from* Pingdong, no 2 year wait. no wait at all, just start drawing up your plans and such.

Whereabout in Miaoli? I thought about the possibility to buy a place there one day (distant future). I like the area east of Sanyi, like Dahu or Zhuolan. Strawberry country, no industry, hilly, mountains not too high, so less chance of landsides and flooding during typhoons.

A friend (European with Taiwanese wife, land in wife name) has bought some coastal farmland in Pingdong waited the 2years and now been told that rules have changed and he cannot build property on his land. I have been offered some farmland nearby and would like to pull the trigger but getting nervous about the development rights. As I understand it, the land my friend bought has been left idle negating it's definition of farmland so he needs use the land as farmland for another 2years before building development can be considered.
Does this sound right?
