MKL has a brilliant post about the other side of the strait – Taiwanese girls: What experts say :
Many foreign guys ask themselves: How are Taiwanese girls really? Of course by spending nearly 8 months on this island, I know almost exactly, how most of them are, maybe I missed to see few of them, but I believe I still have a good grip of the whole female population here. However, there are various real experts on the Internets, who know Taiwanese women much better than me and I decided to collect their best moments and share them with you here, just for your reference. This is of course just one part of the enormous resource on Taiwanese women you can find online: Some of it might surprise you, some of it might shock you, but one thing is sure: This is all 100% true, as these boys are truly experienced and razor sharp analysts.
It's hilarious, worth your 10 minutes read.
But reading this what I couldn't help but wonder about was how different are those stereotypes from the ones about Chinese girls? are there any real major differennces in how expats struggle on mainland, Hong Kong or Taiwan? could we have taken this post, and replaced "Taiwanese girls" with "Hong Kong girls" or "mainland girl" from the HK/mainland expat forums?
My hunch is that the answer to that is generally "yes".

I read that, very true and very hilarious :)
I think that Taiwanese girl is more sweet (at least from the way they speak) and a bit more conservative. If if you can open their mind, they would become very wild and crazy.
Hong Kong girls are a bit more independent, perhaps because of better education and career opportunities. But this also creates many bossy and princessy girls.
Chinese girls… there are too many to talk about. But I think that Chinese girls are very extreme, they can be the girl next door, a good wife, but also a gold digger (same as a lot of Taiwanese and Hong Kong girls).
And there are many more things we can talk about..

Why should he learn chiense? he doesn't live in china, and the guy on the video speaks very bad english. Oh great I'm sitting on stuff and using stuff INVENTED, CONCEIVED, DESIGNED by western minds and built by cheap workers using western made factory tools and western invented assemply lines. OHHH I'M SO OWNED! LOL
Taiwanese girls and Hong Kong girls are both Chinese girls, just as Beijing girl and Shanghai girl are Chinese girl.
Just because they are living outside of mainland China doesn't not make them Chinese. Are Chinese girls living in United States not Chinese by ethnicity? Are there only Chinese in China? The answer is no.
To answer your question. Different regions will have a somewhat different attitude but you really won't find too much difference because the culture is the similar on mainland China and Taiwan.
Your question would make more sense if you instead of using "Chinese girls" you list certain regions like Beijing, Guangzhou, Wuxi, etc.
Helen, no one is saying they are not all Chinese by ethnicity. The "region" of Chinese girls in Taiwan(Taiwanese nationality) would certainly have different attitudes and certainly a different upbringing that would play a part in shaping their character then someone in Beijing, HK, and most definitely the US. A third gen American-Chinese(still Chinese) would be completely different then a Chinese girl living in Shanghai. Another example here in the US, west coast girls are different(attitudes) then east coast girls.
