Taipei - Travel Tips


Local Customs

As in mainland China, 'face' is a crucial element in Taiwanese culture and society. 'Face' to the Chinese has no direct translation in the West, though the closest comparison would be 'pride'. It is considered the height of bad manners to cause someone else to lose face, so most Taiwanese do not show much emotion or express extreme opinions for fear of causing offence. In order to impress and avoid any social mistakes, it is wise to follow the same approach. This extends to very generous gift giving, offering to pay for restaurant bills and general flattery of your hosts.


Taipei Dining

The Taiwanese love food and Taipei has a reputation as one of the world's great Chinese culinary centres. Strongly influenced by regional Chinese and Japanese cuisine, Taiwanese chefs tend to use more seafood and add a sweeter element to their cooking than found in traditional Chinese cuisine.


Taipei Tipping Advice

Service charges in restaurants tend to be included in the bill. If not, then about 10% is a standard tip. For most services you are not expected to tip, with the exception of bellboys and porters who will tend to expect about USD 1.00 per bag.
