I can answer questions about general living, working, visiting, and traveling in Taiwan. Especially Taipei city, I have lived and worked in Taiwan for the past several years. I can't read much Chinese, but I speak well enough to get by. I'm not an expert on postal codes and services, please check this site or contact the Taiwanese postal service via this site to find the postal codes you might be seeking. http://www.post.gov.tw/post/internet/u_english/postal_e.jsp

Experience in the area

I speak enough Chinese to get by, but by no means am I fluent, so I am aware of both sides of the language coin. I live and work in Taipei city, and have travelled around in the past to places like Hualien, Toroko, Tai Dong, Green Island, Ken ting, Kao Shiung, Tai Nan, Sun Moon lake and Tai Jung. Plus locations all over the northern tip of the island. At one point or another I have been into the clubbing, beaching and outdoor scenes alternately over the past few years, so I have a fairly eclectic knowledge base. Ask away, I can't guarantee I'll know the answer but I'll do my best to help you out :D. Magda

2013-06-06 East Coast self-drive itinerary:

I'm not sure how long the drive is (I don't have a car) but it's a lot shorter than it used to be because they built a highway/tunnel through the mountain from Taipei to Ilan (about and hour).  Unfortunately
