591 APP - How to find an apartment in Taipei, Taiwan? 1.1

Updated: May 10, 2018



In my first video, I introduced how to find an apartment in Taipei, Taiwan using the APP 591. The APP can be downloaded on both Android (link here) or IOS (link here). Just look for the orange icon with the numbers 591 and some Chinese characters.

The home page on the APP has a lot of different settings to choose from. The main icon that we will want to pay attention to is the yellow one with a house and a key (the first icon on the top left hand side). It has the Chinese characters 租屋 (zū wū) which means to rent a room in Chinese. Pretty much everything we do in the APP will be in this section. If you want to buy a house in Taiwan, then you need to go to the green icon with a skyscraper. The Chinese characters are 中古屋 ( Zhōnggǔ wū) which mean to buy an old house. For a majority of us, this is a setting we will not be using.

I will go into more detail about the section 租屋 (zū wū) in my next video breaking down how to use the APP and what all the Chinese on the APP means. I will also translate a lot of the Chinese into pinyin for those that are looking to learn some Chinese while using the APP.


I look forward to sharing my next video. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to message me.
