Answer by Vrooom
FYI… sorry I can only tell you its cheaper than in the states BUT If you post this in the travel section you will get alot better answers from people who actually know with good links. I did the same for Costa Rica, Chile, and Panama.

http://www.nhi.gov.tw/english/index.asp

Taiwan has a national health system. Once enrolled, essentially everything wil be covered. Depending on your work status and visa status in Taiwan, you may or may not be eligible for the National Health Insurance. But the general rule of thumb is medical cost in Taiwan is MUCH cheaper than that of the US with the same quality of medical care (when comparing pre-insurance raw price).

how much is the cost of living in Tainan, Taiwan?

Question by kadomisu8: how much is the cost of living in Tainan, Taiwan?
international student in Southern Taiwan University
@ We Never Left: can you give me a rough estimate on that (I am referring to my previous question about living expenses in Taiwan)?

My scholarship grant waived tuition & monthly dorm fees, so that will be excluded to the budget. However, I am not certain about insurances & visa application, or whatever dues that I will be compelled to do so.

Merely, my concerns are food (in & out of the campus), transport, books, laptop/notebook (should I buy one there or better to bring one? which is more expensive?).

Those are my concerns by far.. Thank you.

Best answer:

Answer by We never left!
If you avoid expensive purchases, you can easily get by on US00 per month.

@HowJ – Can you please add some dollar figures in NTD?

Answer by HowJ
Food is cheap in Taiwan. Around college campus and near schools the food will not cost much, and there’s plenty for the students.
Tainan was voted as having the best food/local cuisine in Taiwan.
http://tw.quiz.polls.yahoo.com/quiz/quizresults.php?stack_id=2661&wv=1

American or western restaurants may cost more though. Having a meal at McDonald’s will definitely cost more than a pork chop bento box.

Laptop and computers are actually cheaper in the USA the last time I checked. Yea it is strange I know, considering that many of the computer manufacturers and tech companies originated from Taiwan.

If you’re living on campus I am assuming for the most part of your transportation you’ll be on foot, or bicycle. If you live further away a scooter is a popular mode of transportation in Taiwan. Mass transit is plentiful and abundant. There are buses and trains that will take you to other parts of Taiwan anytime of the day.

good luck

EDIT: McDonad’s has promotion breakfast meal(sandwich plus coffee for NTD), other meals sandwich+fries+drink go anywhere from NTD to 0NTD
KFC 2 piece chicken meal with fries and a drink is about 0NTD.
A pork chop bento box can go anywhere from cheap to 0 NTD for a fancy one. Near schools food/restaurants are usually more affordable.
7-11, CircleK, FamlyMart are found everywhere. You can always get your tummy filled anytime even in the middle of the night.

I stay at YMCA near the Taipei Train Station in the past 2-3 years whenever I go to Taipei, costs about per night. A very convienent location.

You can buy a Easy Card at any subway station and convenient store. They are good for subways and buses. You get discount for riding subways and free bus transfer. There were talks about using them for taxis in the near future.
