Taiwan is one of the most popular shopping destinations in Asia. With its incredible amount of shopping malls, Taipei is a great place to find clothes, fashion accessories, footwear, electronic products and virtually everything available under the sun. Except that you don’t have to be under the sun while you shop – you can enjoy the air-conditioned coolness and modern conveniences.
At the other end of the spectrum, Taiwan is famous for its night markets. Bargain hunters can find curios, trinkets, clothes, and souvenirs at rock bottom prices. However, the markets are better known for the food. Snacks of all shapes, colours and tastes are available, and must-tries include oyster omelettes, fried seafood, sweet pastry and desserts like icy cold shaved ice.
