thanks bro... btw u think Guang Hwa open already at 10am or not...

Book Street is near to Guang Hwa isit.......
Guanghwa already open at 10am ,correct. Guang Hwa is closed every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, Like today is the 4th Tuesday so it was closed.

Book Street is Chongqing S Rd. Near Taipei Main Station: Same Map as before

Center of Map - Red color J Look Far Left to Brown 1 is the Beginning of BookStreet.

All shopping areas and Dept Stores :

http://crazy_azn1.tripod.com/taiwan/id2.html

Shopping:

The Malls under the Taipei Railway Station.There are lots of clothing stores
there with special offers from the city chain stores.Here they have clearance items not available in the other stores.This is because of heavy people traffic,so a great place for clearance. Clothes,Shoes and bags. (There are two Malls, in the Front and in the Rear
of the Station. )

Basic styles are available at the Central City Market (Cheng Chung market
or is it Chung Cheng ,Hmmm) - A Daymarket at Hengyang RD PoAi Rd area.
This opens about 10 am and closes at about 9 pm. Halfway Between the Taipei
Main Station and Ximen MRT Station. There is also a shoe street there.

Wanhua Readymade Wholesale Area.You might want to go there as well, Close to
Lungshan Temple MRT Stop. Lots of clothes , although I have not been to that area in a while.

http://home.trtc.com.tw/EINFO/bigmap.asp?number=bl5 - Area between J & K

WuFenPu Fashion Area is Opposite the Houshanpi MRT (Blue Line) and best to
visit after 4.30pm. Mondays not good to visit there.
http://home.trtc.com.tw/EINFO/bigmap.asp?number=bl15
Raohe Street Market. It is on the other side of the SongShan Train Station.
Check the Houshanpi Map.
You can visit it same evening after WuFenPu 6.30pm onwards. Great food there.
A very Nice Temple there as well.

Hsinyi District: Taipei City Hall MRT Stop
101 Mall, Neo19,Warner Village, New York New York, Singkong Mitsukoshi Dept
Stores are all in one area. Most of these open at about 11am ~ Till about 9.30 or 10
pm.


TianMu:
Zhongshan N Rd any section (Close to Flowers) and take bus : 220. to the end
(Sec 7) Last Stop [2 sections cost you NTD30/-] Most shops open after 2 pm till about 9.30.
If you are on the MRT,the you can take it to Shipai. Then walk out of Station,
left side to traffic Light , turn left to bus stop.Bus 224 to the end (Sec 7)
Last Stop.You will see all the shops when you walk down Section 7
on the left side of the road. 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 NiuRo Shien
Pin, Chung Pin e.t.c.)Read about TianMu here:
http://www.taiwanheadlines.gov.tw/20...0040810s4.html

Shihlin Night Market: Jiantan MRT stop. After 6.30pm is good.
zhong xiao and xin yi that's what i'm looking for

Just kidding, did not want you to get too confused.

The Taipei City Map from the Info counter is very easy to navigate and well done.

my comments

Here is my itinerary, have to thanks to all the bro and sis here, with their help than i can come out this itineary...

Day 1 - 30 Oct - Sunday
2145 Tourch down Taipei. Take Coach to Taipei station than take MRT exit Ximen.
2330 Check in Onestar hotel. Wl try Shilin mkt ...

cool! sunday at shilin very fun but so late! u might need to take cab back to hotel

Day 2 - 31 Oct - Monday
0730 Ximenting Breakfast.
0900 Taipei train station - Buy train ticket to Hualien for 01/11.
1000 Beitou à Hotspring (2hrs) and Hotspring Museum.
1530 Danshui àLao Jie
1900 Yu Ren Ma Tou & Lover's Bridge
2130 Shilin mkt if not tired ( MRT- JianTan Station )

this is roughly the same schedule when i was there. i went hotspring at 11+ and ended at 2.30pm. unless u've got great stamina for hotspring. i left danshui at ard 5.30 so that i can catch sunset at 6pm yurenmatou. after tat i went to miramar ferry wheel b4 heading for shilin. u might want to try it too

Day 3 - 01 Nov - Tue
0600 Morning train 0645 to Hualien
1000 People from Minsu wl pick us up, than they wl arng for us to tour ard Hualien.

Day 4 - 02 Nov - Wed
0800 Tour at Hualien…
1730 Train to Taipei
2100 Reach Taipei, back to hotel than go Ximenting / Shilin

by the time u reach taipei, should be very tired therefore ximending would be good, else u can try nearby station like zhong xiao xin sheng and visit the guang gua etc. shilin no need go back so many times on wkdays. go on wkend

Day 5 - 03 Nov - Thru
0700 Ximenting Breakfast.
0800 Yeliou (TMS to the Kuokuang Bus North Terminus. Get a bus from there to Yeilou. Cost NTD80/- Trip a bit over 1 hr.)

1600 Keelung à Miao Kou Night Mkt
2100 Ximenting / Shilin ( If too tire, than wl go back hotel Zzzzz )

not sure if u can cover so many places~ cos travelling time are taken into concern. from yeliu to jinguashi is very far when travelling by bus, so i suggest u go ruifang or jiufen 1st before heading further up to jinguashi. but u might buy alot of stuffs from jiufen. u can drop ur stuffs at the information counter at jinguashi
