ESLITE Bookstore

recommendation by chema

cultured

There are several outlets of Eslite in Taipei, but its flagship is definitely the one located at the Renai Traffic Circle. A bookstore opened 24 hours (actually the first in the world) where you are welcome to browse, but also to read comfortably as long as you want. They offer one of the best catalogues, not only in Chinese and Japanese, but also in English.

As a plus, in the B2 of the same building you'll find the best record shop in the city. Well... there are no many good CD shops left.

Pizza Cut Five

recommendation by chema

fresh & funky

Pizza Cut Five is the most famous Taiwanese T-shirts brand. They offer good design and quality tees with a very original marketing concept. A pizza delivering crossover with the name and style of the Japanese band Pizzicato Five. You can go to one of their boutiques to buy your new tee or order it by phone (and internet) and recieve it at home in a pizza delivery box!

Their most remarkable designs are those of Chang's face versions made in collaboration with the Formosa Chang restaurants.

White Wabbit Records

recommendation by chema

cultured

As in many cities around the World, most records stores have closed in Taipei. One of the few still standing is White Wabbit Records, specialized in Taiwanese and foreign indie bands. Their headquarters is located inside The Wall (live house), but they've just opened a new store in Shida area.

White Wabbit is not only a records store, but also a record label that releases many foreign indie bands in Taiwan.
