I live in an English speaking country and I can get a visa to Taiwan for one month. I don't like fast travel so I am quite happy to spend a month exploring Taiwan. Whilst I will spend some time in Taipei I live in a city so I prefer to travel through areas outside big cities to see how the locals live and the culture of a country. I also like walking and would be happy to visit an island or two.
I will be travelling by myself and I guess I was looking at doing a big loop of Taiwan. Suggestions as to the direction to go and ways to get around. Staying for a month I will need to keep costs down. Will (lack of) English be a problem outside the main cities? What sort of accommodation should I look at? I prefer family owned places rather than international hotels. A place to stay in Taipei that is in a good location but not too expensive?
