Interesting observation--I was eating lunch with a Taiwanese friend yesterday when he shared something with me. He told me that Taiwanese people treat foreigners much better than their own people. He claimed to have been noticing this all day while walking around with me. I started noticing, too, after he had mentioned it. Although this may seem unfair, I will take such a "prejudice" anytime over what happened to me in another Asian country which shall not be named. In that one, I had to endure being mocked continuously almost anytime I went outside. Nothing like that has every happened to me in Taiwan.
