"Culture shock," is a unique and complex aspect of relocation… When expatriates experience culture shock, it can lead to dissatisfaction and to the will to return home early.
For companies who invest money to send an employee and their family to a different country, it’s extremely important to consider this aspect to avoid losses of money and time.

Although it is well known that spouses are mostly prone to get tangled into this discomfort, culture shock can affect any member of a family going through the process of relocation.

This tour is specifically designed for those expats who are moving in Taiwan for a short or a long period. It can be difficult sometime to adapt to a new situation and language. The best way to avoid the “cultural shock” is to know the place where you live, to be able to be free and independent as soon as possible and to feel comfortable to move around the city.
