RE: The Ultimate Taipei, Taiwan Datasheet
Personally, I'm more in the bit darker type, so Bangkok is besides the already mentioned advantages my choice. In case someone is more into the East Asian look, I would definitely prefer other countries before going to Taiwan. The most beautiful East Asian girls are definitely in South Korea and Japan, so if you mind about quality that would be my first choices. If costs in Tokyo or Seoul are too high, just go to a 2nd tier city which will have as well very beautiful targets and a even higher chance to hookup. To my mind, Taiwan has passed its peak a few years ago. It's still a good place, but a few years ago it was definitely easier to get laid there and if you're in the Chinese type then I would in the meantime prefer to go to Shanghai or Hong Kong, which are more happening places.

RE: The Ultimate Taipei, Taiwan Datasheet
I will be in Taipei late January and again mid-late February if anybody fancies hanging out.

Also, any personal reccomendations as to hotels around the central area of Taipei? Trying to keep it <$100USD.

Thanks!

RE: The Ultimate Taipei, Taiwan Datasheet
I stayed at the United Hotel which was pretty nice, good location and surrounding area, right next to a train station and a little bit less than $100/night. It might not wow you but is certainly a solid choice and I'd stay there again if I return to Taipei.

Agree. There are so many better places to go to in Asia than Taipei for better quality and easiness.

The few exceptions, normally have white fever.

Well at least they take one for the team.

Plenty of hilarious blog posts of them complaining about the situation they put themselves in, for example: http://www.vagabondish.com/female-foreign-japan/

As for Fempats in Taiwan, I have met a few from work conferences and nights out that are here on short-mid term work assignments but the rest are usually misfits back home/doing a gap year/on some scholarship from a third world country/language students.

I agree with this. Taipei has definitely gotten more difficult over the years, especially now that there are tons of expats there. You really have to bring your A game which can get annoying at times. Still worth it, but the name of the game is social circle.

Taibei is basically a slightly more chaotic and feminist version of Tokyo.

You don't get much of a premium for being White or foreign, but most girls would not rule you out because of it. Likewise, anti-white racism and xenophobia isn't an issue, what with their ethnically identical neighbour across the straits threatening to destroy them.

Taiwanese work the longest hours in the world, so actually finding time to meet up may be an issue.

Lookswise, the average girl is worse than in Korea because there is less social pressure to be beautiful, but still better than in poorer countries where they can't afford to look good.

RE: The Ultimate Taipei, Taiwan Datasheet
Can anyone give some recent anecdotes on the nightlife in Taipei?

In terms of accomodation I'm kind of lazered in on Xinyi Anhe. This looks like the best area from a logistical standpoint, but I'm open to suggestions.

RE: The Ultimate Taipei, Taiwan Datasheet
I'd say there is a consensus among expats and locals alike that the nightlife has become worse compared to 3 years ago. Nearly all venues that were hotspots in 2014-2015 have closed. I read an article on Apple Daily the other day and it mentioned the still ongoing constant raids, smartphones/social media, low wages for 20somethings as factors. Other good venues have sprung up in the meantime (Kor & Frank most notably) but it's really not what it used to be - back in 2014 on a Sat night front of Family Mart at ATT was like a mini LKF, now often it's eerily quiet.

Once you actually get inside one of the few good places left it's still gonna be happening but the overall atmosphere has changed and so has the number of options.

RE: The Ultimate Taipei, Taiwan Datasheet
Being white definitely helps in Taipei but not as much as you'd think. Over the years (and once this year) I've gotten approached by hotties and fucked them that night- this is pretty rare though. Being white isn't much of a novelty anymore, especially at the nightclubs. I heard nightlife isn't like it used to be because now lots of girls are using those "Life" and "17" apps. Girls are making good money from these apps so they don't feel the need to go out to nightclubs to meet rich guys anymore.

But in the scheme of things none of what I said really matters. If you like Asian girls then Taipei is still worth visiting, just don't expect to fuck new girls everyday (unless you have low standards, then anything is possible). IMO Taipei isn't a good place to "learn" game. It's better for medium-term visits, 1-3 months. With that time frame you should be able to bang at least 1 or 2 serious hotties and a few average girls as well.
