Should I exchange money before I travel to Taiwan?

Definitely! Exchanging money before your Taiwan trip is smart. Having local currency upon arrival covers initial expenses like transport and small buys. It’s wise to have New Taiwan dollars ready when you land.

Sanxia District, New Taipei City, Taiwan

What is the best currency to bring to Taiwan?

In Taiwan, the New Taiwan dollar is your best bet. Some places may accept other major currencies, but TWD is usually more practical and cost-effective.

Can I use my bank card in Taiwan?

Yes, but cash is often preferred, especially in smaller towns and local markets. You’ll need New Taiwan dollars for daily expenses.

Major cities like Taipei and Kaohsiung accept card payments. Carry both cash and a card for flexibility.

Friendly tip: Inform your bank about your travel to prevent card issues abroad.

Do I need cash in Taiwan?

Indeed, cash is king in Taiwan. Here’s why:

Cash is accepted everywhere in Taiwan, from night markets to small stores. It’s great for small purchases, like street food or market buys. ATMs are common in cities, making it easy to withdraw more cash.

Cash helps avoid card fraud. Keep it safe, and don’t flaunt large amounts. Check exchange rates regularly. Sometimes, card transactions offer better deals.

Overall, mixing cash and cards is the best approach for Taiwan. Use cash for smaller expenses and cards for bigger ones.

If you have any leftover travel money from your trip to Taiwan, remember to exchange your New Taiwan dollars to pound sterling upon your return.

Is it better to use cash or credit card in Taiwan?

In Taiwan, it’s often better to use cash, especially in smaller shops, local markets, and for street food. Many places still prefer cash over credit and debit cards. 

However, credit cards are widely accepted in larger stores, restaurants, and hotels in cities. It’s a good idea to carry both for convenience.

Cash is king in rural areas, while your card will come in handy in urban spots!

How much cash should I take to Taiwan?

As a budget traveller in Taiwan, you can expect to spend around 1500 TWD, around £40 per day, or 10,400 TWD, around £280 for a week.

Here’s how to travel affordably in Taiwan:

  • Accommodation: Stay in hostels for 610 TWD, around £20 per night. In cities like Kaohsiung, Hualien, and Tainan, prices can drop to around 330 TWD, around £10.
  • Transportation: Use Taiwan’s great public transport. Taipei metro rides are less than £1, around 37 TWD. Inter-city trains, like Taipei to Hualien, start at 550 TWD, which is around £15.
  • Food: Save on meals by eating at night markets. Delicious food can cost as little as 190 TWD, around £5 per meal.
  • Attractions: Many of Taiwan’s indoor and outdoor attractions are free.

For a mid-range budget:

You’ll spend about 3,050 TWD daily, around £80, or 21,350 TWD, around £580 weekly. This is an excellent mid-range budget. It covers budget-friendly private rooms, high-speed trains, tours, and plenty of food and drinks.

In summary, Taiwan is budget-friendly, whether you’re backpacking or just watching your spending. 

How can I avoid ATM fees in Taiwan?

To avoid ATM fees in Taiwan, try these tips:

  • Check if your bank has partnerships with Taiwanese banks. They might offer free withdrawals.
  • Use ATMs less often by withdrawing larger amounts at once.
  • Look for ATMs with lower fees. Some banks charge less than others.
  • Consider getting a travel card or bank account that doesn’t charge international ATM fees.

Remember, always be aware of your home bank’s policies on foreign transactions!

For short visits, UK passport holders can enter Taiwan for up to 90 days without a visa. But, a visa is required if you plan to stay longer or for reasons like work or study. It is always best to check the latest visa requirements before your trip!

For your trip to Taiwan, there are no specific vaccinations required. However, being up-to-date on routine vaccines is always a good idea. These include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella (chickenpox), polio, and your yearly flu shot.

Before you go, it’s wise to check with your doctor or a travel health clinic to get the best advice for your health and safety!

Visiting Taiwan in spring (April to June) or fall (September to November) is ideal. These months are perfect for exploring Taiwan’s rich culture and stunning landscapes.

Spring activities:

  • In April and May, you can enjoy the beautiful cherry blossoms. Places like Yangmingshan National Park near Taipei are famous for them.
  • It’s also a great time for hiking. Trails in Taroko Gorge or along the East Coast offer breathtaking views.
  • Take advantage of the Dragon Boat Festival in June, a vibrant and exciting event with boat races and traditional foods.

Fall activities:

  • Fall is ideal for cycling. Taiwan has impressive bike paths, like the one around Sun Moon Lake.
  • It’s also the season for food festivals. Try local delicacies at events like the Taipei Food Festival.
  • Nature lovers should visit the Alishan National Scenic Area to see the stunning fall foliage.

Both seasons avoid the hot, humid summers and the rainy season, making your trip comfortable for sightseeing and outdoor adventures. 

Whether you’re into cultural festivals, food, hiking, or cycling, Taiwan in spring and fall has something unique to offer!

Yes, the Taiwan dollar and the New Taiwan dollar are the same. The New Taiwan dollar replaced the Old Taiwan dollar at a rate of 40,000 to 1. The “New” part shows it’s a fresh start for Taiwan’s money system.
