The Eslite branch located in Xinyi district is the newest and biggest location in the city. The bookstore, the largest in the country with more than a million books, occupies three of the six floors of this huge shopping mall, where you can also find fantastic toys, design, clothing stores and restaurants.

The ready-made clothes distribution zone is a paradise for those who are looking for fashion at a fair or even cheap price. The whole area is dedicated to shopping housing hundreds of wholesale shops that sell to those in the center of Taipei. It's located a little bit far from the center of the city, on the North side of Xinyi District, but it really deserves a visit. The shops keep on changing their stuff every week, so you'll never find the same thing twice.

If there's a place that has made Taiwan famous it's the electronics market. The Guang Hua Digital Plaza is the best place for those who want to take a look at the latest electronic items developed by Taiwan and buy some cheap gadgets. There are tons of electronics shops concentrated in the same building.
You should also take a walk outside the building. The streets are full of shops too.
If you really want to buy at a good price, forget the international brands and focus on Taiwanese stuff.
