Don’t act smart (Taiwanese also know English)
Never make fun of Mr. Sun Yat Sun, Mr. Chiang Kai Shek and Mr. Chiang Ching Kuo
Never comment on their polities (You never know who belong to which party)
A simple rejection to all porters around airport/ train stations
Always keep some small notes or coins (They come useful during your night market tour)
If you are dining in fast food restaurant, pls clear your own table before you leave
