    1. What are good gifts to give to business in Taiwan?

    這句問題我不清楚你想問的是

    1a:"若外來人士來台可以帶什麼樣的禮物給台灣人"

    Generally speaking, if a foreigner wishes to bring a gift to a Taiwanese people, something from their hometown would be nice. The gifts doesn't need to be elaborate or expensive. It is only a token of politeness. Something like a small home decoration or local specialty food would be a nice gift.

    1b:"台灣有什麼樣的特產可以出國送人用"

    I would bring something local like good Chinese tea, Oolong tea for instance. Something small that it can be carried easily in the luggest without taking up too much space. Or, if you knew what the receiver well, you can buy somethig that he would like or need.

    2. What other greetings do you know about?

    The most common way of greeting would be the same old "how are you?", "how have you been?" If you know the person for quite some time, then you may ask something that is more specific and in depth, like "how is your family?", "how is work treating you?". In a more casual setting, you may also say, "how is life treating ya?" or "what is up!" or "what's new?"

    3. People in Taiwan believes that being puntual is very important and necessary and would consider being late as very rude and disrespectful.

    4. Do you know that in what countries do people bow? Shake hands? Give each other business cards?

    From what I know, Japanese people have a habit of bowing, some Taiwanese too. Most of the western area will shake hands and exchange name cards in business setting.

    6. I would suggest that if they have something that they do not eat, for instance, spicy food or intestines, they say it earlier. Sometimes it may be percieved as rude if they do not eat the food that the host offered. To avoid trouble, it is probably better to say it before hand.

    7.Lunch is usualy more casual. Dinner is generally more formal. If it is between a man and a woman, it could also be viewed as a "date". Usually, under business settings, a dinner invitation also infers high regards.

    是我個人的答案跟意見. 希望可以幫到你喔!

    Bowing and hand shaking is the most common way of greeting. Other types of greeting may be patting on the back or a hug. For a more formal setting the best bet is to go with hand shaking or bowing.
