A piece of advice. Never go to Feng Jia night market during weekend. It's so crowded that you practically stucked in human traffic. Almost all food stalls have long Q. Shilin night market is nothing compared to this.

Guys im looking for gundams/figurines/toys and clothes.. Which part of Taiwan should i go? I will be going with my gal. And she always watch those 女人我最大 or something so i guess she is looking for Cosmetics and clothes ba....

Anyplace to shop for all these? Hot spring might be cool too? (But not compulsory lah)
Opp Taipei Station -K Mall bldg and the Taipei City Mall(Underground behind Taipei Main Station) for figurines Your GF can get inexpensive shoes,bags, t-shirts there.
Cosmetics many places around the KMall bldg, Singkong Bldg and the lanes beside these Bldgs.
For Veg food, many Veg bintang (Lunch box) places around Taipei-big Veg Population here. Look for the Swastic signs. My Fave is on Wuchang St opp the checgzhong Day Market
