in tw?

they have lots of brand and designs, try taipei nova, j-mall, or guanghua shangchang ... price is quite near to local prices if not a bit lower, but definitely more variety, and you can buy few pieces of each type, no need to buy in bundles of 5 or 10 pieces.

OT

@all

intend to travel to Taipei during the first week of May 2005 (best if depart 6th May Friday come back 14th May Sat, other dates also can but must be there before 12th).

looking for another fellow traveller to make use of the Cathay Pacific $338 per person (before airport tax, minimum 2 to travel) offer.

other than must depart and come back on the same dates, NO other restrictions, you are free to travel to anywhere in Taiwan once you touch down in Taipei.

Anyone keen pls contact me at 92382483, or if you of better offers, pls also let me know, this the cheapest i know, even better than Jetstar.

thk you.

jetstar u will need to buy abt 2 mths in advance to enjoy the lowest fare, if i buy now for May, will cost 400+ before tax and their lugguage conditions are bery strict, taipei bo pian, becos only 1 LCC flying there, fare still quite steep
