Money and costs

ATMs abound in Taipei and most are connected to either the Cirrus or Plus network and accept foreign cards from aligned banks. In addition to banks, look for ATMs at 7-Elevens, and other convenience stores. ATMs give you the choice of handling the transaction in English or Chinese.

You can exchange money or travellers cheques (US$ denominations are best) at the airport, or most commercial banks in the city, especially any Bank of Taiwan. There is no black market for currency exchange, nor are there currency-exchange kiosks.
