Units of measurement
The metric system is used in Taiwan. Speed limits, highway markers, and speedometer information are given in kilometers.
- Centimeter (公分)
- Meter (公尺 or 米)
- Kilometer (公里)
- Liter (公升)
- Gram (公克)
- Kilogram (公斤)
- In produce markets, Taiwanese weighing units are also used. One tai jin or simply jin (台斤 or 斤) is equivalent to 600g. In Taiwanese/Hokkien, this unit is called kin.
Clothing sizes may be scaled to suit East Asians; therefore, always try the clothing on before purchasing it.
