The New Taiwan Dollar is the official currency of Taiwan, and is variously abbreviated as TWD, NT$ or NTD$. The most commonly used denominations are the NTD$100, NTD$500, and NTD$1000 bills. There are also NTD$200 and NTD$2000 bills in circulation but you will very rarely encounter them. NTD$50, NTD$10, NTD$5, and NTD$1 coins are also in wide circulation. Cash is widely used for purchases in Taiwan, though most stores and establishments now accept major credit cards and local stored value cards (Easy Card and iPass). Personal checks are not normally used in Taiwan for payment of everyday expenses.
Taiwan is world-renowned for the breadth and quality of its cuisine, and at surprisingly reasonable prices. You’ll find delicious and nutritious meals in your neighborhood including rice, noodles, soups, or dumplings for between NT$40 and NT$100. A Big Mac, fries, and soda set meal from McDonald’s costs about NT$150-170. Dinner for two in an upscale restaurant will cost about NT$1,000. Supermarkets sell local and imported products at reasonable prices. Taiwan is a great place for vegetarians, and Halal food is available in major cities.
Greater Taipei, Kaohsiung and Taoyuan all boast modern, comprehensive and inexpensive subway (MRT) systems, and the Taichung MRT will open in 2020. You can ride from one end of Greater Taipei to the other for only NT$60. Bus fares are only NT$15-25, and taxis are clean, safe and inexpensive with a day time initial charge of NT$70 in Taipei, with an additional NT$20 per kilometer. After arriving in Taiwan, go to any convenience store to buy a stored value Easy Card or iPass (Smartcard). You can use these cards for all transportation networks, and many stores also accept them for payment. The charge is NTD100 for the card, and you can add funds at any convenience store or MRT station. With a local mobile phone number, you can also use your Easy Card to use Taiwan’s extensive YouBike bike share system.

For international students, living in a university dormitory is usually the most convenient option, providing safe and inexpensive housing close to campus. However, most university dormitories are shared accommodations, so you will have roommates, and rooms are subject to availability. Each TEEP program provides on and off-campus dormitory accommodations for international students. Please contact the program staff to confirm availability, fees, type of room, location and rules.
