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. 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.
