all these very personal preferences. but i feel tianjin road ones are of much better quality, i dun get such quality for that price even in sg (without haggling) and more korean style clothes design. I am very used to buying like that and dun need try able to tell whether i can wear mah. for pants is harder, need to bring ur own pants to compare hem to hem

i also managed to buy muji brand long tights there for 200NT per piece (i bought 1/2 dozen and i haggled) and it cost 750NT in MUJI shop.

in taiwan, more clothes choice for ladies than men. Wufenpu, cheap ones wun sell u cos they are looking at bulk sale. Tianjin road will entertain u. more young children clothes in tianjin road. this time of the year its all thick clothes....no summer

ADDITIONal INFO:
the best takoyaki i had was at WUFENPU. Thats if that ah hia is till there selling
Since selling all winter clothes, then maybe can skip tianjin street. Was thinking of buying some office and causal smart wear.

I didn't eat anything at Wufenpu before, save all my stomach space for food at Raohe 😁

Best takoyaki for me was at Danshui.

I think Puri should give me discount always promote them haha.
I stayed there once when I was in Taipei last year this period for a week. Location is no brainer win. But room space not big big to put much things though. Going Taipei this dec, booked ximen Puri again.
I heard via, cityinn, orange not bad too.

Btw recently any new spots in Taipei can spend half a day to a day? Already been to XMD,忠孝東路,101,TMS. Didn't go 士林夜市before, but heard too commercial so may want to skip again.

hmm... now that you ask, I really didnt notice too. Because usually I will just handwash with abit soap then hang dry inside toilet.
Oh oh btw, in case you encounter this like I did, don't be scare (which i was ). Last year when I stayed at xmd Puri, the first night when I finally returned back to the hotel after a tiring day. I realise right diagonally opposite my room is another room with door half ajar and locked by a padlock and hanging a talisman looking object. WTH?! The room's light was not on, I tried to peep in but cant see anything. That night I was quite sleepless thinking what is that room with a padlock and talisman. Next morning on my way out, I took a look at that room again. kns, its a storeroom for blanket and bedsheet...

A little offtopic sharing. I went Taipei in June this year, this time thought wanted to be near TMS so i picked an airbnb next to Cityinn Taipei Station. I stayed for 2 nights, and I COMPLETELY REGRET. That stretch are mostly shophouses like our Chinatown, which will close by around 9pm. Comparing to xmd area which you may still have food and crowd at midnight. If ask me pick again now, I will say XMD ftw.

1/2 a day not hard leh.

Pardon my suaku, I really didnt know about Aquatics Addiction until you mention it. I just google, its something like a fish market like Tsukiji? Besides eating fresh seafood, any activity or things to see there? Else I may just pick another night market which I never went before in Taipei.

Night time, they have outdoor dining.
Unless you have budget to blow, a dinner on in Yangmingshan can ge good.
If not, finding a nice cafe to hang out or a 居酒屋 like 乾杯,can consider these.
