I prefer to say "I am from Taichung, Taiwan".
I think the compromised name "Chinese Taipei" confuses everyone. Taipei, as the capital of Taiwan, is located in the north of Taiwan. Taichung is the biggest city in central Taiwan. I live in Taichung instead of Taipei. Should I tell you that I am from Taichung, Chinese Taipei?
我認為“中華台北(或中國台北)”這個妥協的名字讓每個人都感到困惑。 台北做為台灣的首都，位於台灣北部。 台中是台灣中部最大的城市。 我住在台中而不是台北。 我應該告訴你“我來自中國台北的台中”嗎？
