two things:


Add one year to your age before you travel to Taiwan: they count the 9 months before you’re born as you’re first year! So… I’m 17 in USA but really 18 in Taiwan! LOL Saweeet

Taiwanese Calendar

The Minguo (民國) calendar, counting years from the establishment of the ROC (1911), is commonly used in Taiwan, so don’t be too surprised to find dates like “98-05-03” on tickets or bags of chips — ROC 98 is 2009 AD. To convert a Minguo date to A.D., just add 11. Months and days are according to the standard Gregorian calendar.
