“Wise shopping Do Not BE Afraid In Taipei”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Underground those MRT stations esp. under the Taipei Main, wow so many secret hidden shops (similar to out tiangge) so reasonable prices- NT200 for a pair of shoes (convert about 1.43 to our Phil peso), bargain dresses from NT200 !! A Steal !!
Inside streets of Taipei those night markets are a MUST!
TIPS:
Bring along your own trolley- dont worry can carry along the train after shopping- even up on the Bus
Bring your water bottle- you'll get thirsty
Bring loose NT 100 bills
Eat first before u go, but sliced fruits on the night markets are very sweet- welcome treat for fruitarians like me
Walking old shoes, but easy to remove just in case u need to try on shoes- or boots!
Wear skirts or garter shorts- easy to remove to try on some pants
Wear thin shirts sleeveless so u can try on some dresses quickly- some might not have fitting rooms for u-remember it's Night market shopping, move around
Get a short afternoon nap first might be tiring- this way u can last long
Curfew at 10p.m. my last Bus ride back

“Convenient shopping!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Convenient shopping area for middle class. You may find some very good deals here! It's an underground mall, so enjoy shopping even on rainy days.

“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

An average reminder of a lie quality shopping area. Compared to the department stores, Taipei City Mall looks almost shabby. However, it is one of the few malls in Taiwan. Worth seeing if you miss malls.
