Taiwanese are very polite in both the way they speak and how they treat other people.
- Transport Be aware of priority seating in buses and the MRT (the seat is usually a different colour). Most Taiwanese would never think of sitting here unless they are disabled, aged or pregnant. They also readily give up their seat to anyone who needs it.
- Queues Taiwanese queue for transport and in shops.
- Greetings It's fine to shake hands or just smile when meeting someone for the first time. Accept and offer business cards with both hands.
