I want to buy some tickets through this website, but it seems that you cannot do online booking -- the member registeration only allows you to choose a taiwan address

I dont read chinese but the link seems to be for Camera St:
From the start of BoAi Road towards the end of WuChang Street (including the front section of HanKou and KaiFeng roads) is a mecca for photographic equipment. This "camera street" has over 40 years of history, with approximately 40 shops selling cameras and other related equipment. You can still find traditional, but highly professional, photographic equipment here, as well as all the latest in digital photographic technology.
Walking distance from Ximenting or Taipei Station.

Nope, Yuan Ling street is indeed - Shoe street (One side clothes-Other side Shoes.) You are looking for Cameras or Shoes .

All these streets are off Bo Ai Rd,Walk further down the road and you will see the Camera Street:You wont miss it,just look for the Signs.Ximen Exit 4, walk down Hengyang road, 3 mins away traffic lights, turn left into Bo Ai Road.


Yuan Ling Street looks like this:
