hey nutty.... do u think a trip to the Core Pacific City Living Mall is worthwhile ? wat do they have there ???
Hi Gibson,
Core Pacific (Living Mall) is like most malls. I am not a mall person

BUT, you can get some idea from their website:

http://crazy_azn1.tripod.com/taiwan/id2.html
(Scroll down to links to most of the "Famous" Dept Stores here in Taipei)

These are the links toWarner Village and Miramar:

Hi,

Tain Mu has something for everyone. Including teens. Jeans, Jacket, T-shirts, blouses . While tsome of the items are not "cheap" they are branded originals. Originals costing at he Sun and the Mooon these are anyway priced from NT390 to NT590. Brands like Polo, Boss, Hard Rock Cafe, Guess , Nautica e.t.c. You have to look for them and they are not always available but it has always been worth a trip .
I live in Neihu on the other side of the city but still make my way there to shop.

From Chung Shan North Road (Anywhere) Take bus 220 till the end (NTD30) and walk down the hill with all the shops on the left side of the road. Use the same bus on your return to Town-Hengyang Rd( Near Ximen MRT or Taipei Main Station)

Lots of shops also on TianMu West Rd as well (Not Factory outlets) Junction of Tian Mu West Rd and Tian Mu N. Rd. great place to eat local food,worth a visit(You will see them frying the Niu Ro Shien Pin, Chung Pin , Ko Thuay (fried Dumplings e.t.c.)

There is also a day market near Hengyang Rd/Po Ai Rd junction, Starts about 9.30 am for clothes ,shoes (Not teens) and a Shoe street there as well.

Hey, Dont worry!!!,

Freego has a bus leaving Taipei starting at 4 am, with buses leaving every 20 mins. You can email them for the Bus Station nearest the Ximenting area and take a cab to that place. Here is their website:

http://www.freego.com.tw/

P.S. To Taoyuan city and toTaipei City from CKS is not much of a difference in travel time (15 mins diff at best)

any 1 stay/heard of 華冠大飯店

http://whaguan.network.com.tw/web/whaguan/default.htm
I think I passed by HuaGuan Hotel when I was returning to Kilin Hotel. If I remember correctly, it should be opposite, or near Ximending Primary School. At least it's so closer to Ximending than Kilin....From the outside looks ok...Nearby got some nice-looking cafe and food store. But should be further away from LongShan Temple...Kilin closer...

Out of curious...has anyone walk to Longshan Temple...the streets near there is it the Red District har? Coz I saw quite a no. of obasan waering heavy makeup in the morning hanging around the street....

For Comics, you should go to Guanghua Market (The Electronic Area) The PC and Peripherals are on the 1st Flr, And the Books ,comics,Cds and DVDs in the basement. Zhongxiao/Xinsheng MRT Stop.

I have also seen Comic shops Near Sogo in Ding Hou.Dont remember where!!!
