A recent study in Taiwan has revealed that many of the countries native residents hanker after a move abroad, but foreign expats are thriving.
Despite native Taiwanese seeking an exit, a number of westerners have come out to speak highly of Taiwan, and the experiences they have enjoyed since moving to the country.
Expats in Taiwan have remarked that the country is very welcoming to foreigners, and that there is a strong level of tolerance for varying cultures.
Cheryl Robbins, an expat who lives in Thailand said: “Taiwan is a very dynamic place and that is one of the many aspects that appeals to me,” she said. “There is never a dull moment. That is the freedom of Taiwan, to be able to choose your own lifestyle. I still remember attending the opening of the Museum of World Religions in Taipei many years ago. The thought that ran through my mind was that Taiwan is one of the few places where such a museum can exist.”
