The capital of Taiwan, Taipei City is a global city and is the hub of the country’s economy, politics, education and culture.

The city and its surroundings are considered to be one of the top high-tech industrial areas in the world and has been at the heart of Taiwan’s rapid economic growth since the 1960s.

Most of the country’s industrial efforts are also run out of Taipei and the cities that make up its metropolitan area.

The location

Situated in northern Taiwan and mainly part of the Taipei Basin, Taipei City is bordered by the Xindian River on the south and the Tamsui River on the west.

Due to its rainy climate and the fact that it is near the coast, the air pollution that is experienced in many cities of Southeast Asia and mainland China, doesn’t effect Taipei to the same extent.

Looking for an office in Taipei

Despite this a lot of companies are still looking for premium space, especially in the Xinyi District as they look for high profile locations and premises.



Costs

The prices for serviced office space can range from between NT$ 10,000 to 20,000 per workstation in Taipei, depending on location and requirements.
