Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

This should be easy to find by googling it...

1. how to say in Taiwan
'Hello" = Ni Hao
"Thank you" = Xie Xie
"Sure" = [in what type of situation?]
"How much is it?, Too expensive" = Zhege duoshao qian? Tai gui le.

2. in Taipei. which restaurant I must go? just snack or cafe would be ok!! Plz recommend me!!

There are like tenth of thousands of restaurants... I like The Villa Herbs ( ... estaurant-)

3. What is worth to buy in Taiwan? would be great if the price is reasonable.

There are like a million things to buy in Taiwan... I like products made by the indigenous people, but often the handicraft is quite expensive.

4. The cosmetic brand called "Za" is one of my favourite brand!! Is it easy to find in Taipei city?

No idea

Thanx A LOT !!! :pray:[/quote]

Are you a tourist?

For food, go to Ding Tai Feng. Everyone else does. But pretty much anywhere you eat will be good.

If you're here for shopping you'll be disappointed. Electronics used to be quite good value but I've noticed they are now more expensive than elsewhere, even Taiwan-made brands. Cosmetics, fashion etc is as expensive as anywhere else.

Regarding shopping:

There is a gorgeous place called Handicraft Market, run by the government. Very reasonable prices, great variety. Prices and safety -especially if buying jade or anything high end guaranteed.
Address: 100台北市中正區徐州路1號

Phone:02 2393 3655

Hours: 9:00 am – 7:00 pm

Also recommend the Zhengzhong Market. Enter by the Shoe Street and work your way up to the Huanging Temple. ... aipei.html

Shopping areas: ... opping.htm

Ximending and Shilin are OKish for shopping cool stuff, but too crowded and touristy and the food has declined. For the best food, IMHO, try Ninxia Night market. ... aipei.html

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
