The fascinating and beautiful islands of Taiwan are home to a thriving ESL job market. The demand for teachers is particularly high in regards to teaching children where the number of jobs is growing year after year. Reports of teaching experiences in Taiwan have been highly favourable, particularly with regards to working and living conditions. Daily living is cheap- especially outside the capital Taipei, and the salaries are comparatively higher than many Asian countries. So if you want to strike a balance between saving money and living like royalty, Taiwan is well worth considering.
