An interesting way of saying what is cheap in Taiwan is "What is cheap in China is expensive in Taiwan; Things that are expensive on the mainland are cheap in Taiwan." Indeed, in terms of daily food and basic necessities, the cost of living in Taiwan, especially Taipei, is higher than most mainland cities. But there are also things in Taiwan that are cheaper than the mainland, such as maintenance products for girls and sneakers for boys. It may be due to the fierce competition, the choice of maintenance products and makeup in Taiwan is much richer than the mainland, it can be said that the mainland has some brands in Taiwan basically, and the mainland does not have brands, Taiwan also has a lot. Especially Japanese products, in some open-shelf cosmeceuticals, carrying a small basket around, there will be a lot of unexpected gains. In addition to the choice, the price is an important factor in attracting people, the price of cosmetics in Taiwan is on average 20% to 30% cheaper than the mainland, if you meet the preferential set, some can even be nearly half cheaper. Said that young girls love to use CLINIQUE water magnetic field cream, the price in the mainland is 450 yuan /50ml, while the Taiwan price is NT $1500/75ml, about 300 yuan, the price is a third cheaper, while the capacity has increased by half, in the words of a classmate "cheap with white pick up." But things like maintenance products should be a girl's "heart", boys in addition to gifts for girlfriends and mothers, there is little interest in these things. But boys also have their own unique preferences, which is brand-name sneakers. Like NIKE, ADIDAS such brands of sports shoes, Taiwan and the mainland price difference of about 30%, NIKE's new AIRMAX series of running shoes, the mainland price of about 600 to 700 yuan, and in Taiwan only need about two thousand Taiwan dollars, equivalent to about four hundred yuan. At this price difference, buying four or five pairs of shoes is not news. Famous department stores in Taipei

Where to shop in Taiwan Famous Department Stores in Taipei There are three main categories of shopping places in Taiwan: department stores, night markets and others. When it comes to department stores, there are Oiba Takashimaya, sogo Tenmu, Shinko Mitsukoshi Tenmu in the Tenmu shopping district; There is sogo Zhongxiao, Zhongxiao East Road, breeze square; The 101 of Xinyi Business District, New York, New York, and the very "spectacular" Shin Koshi Mitsukoshi (the sky corridor connects more than a dozen pavilions). Of course, there are many other shopping malls, which are not listed here. The night market is an indispensable part of Taiwan culture, said Shilin night market, Gongguan night market, Huaxi Street night market. When it comes to the night market, most of us think of snacks, in fact, in the night market can also fully release the "shopping desire". In the night market, both young people like NIKE, LEVI's, and roadside stalls, T-shirts starting from NT $100 and trinkets for 49 yuan, not only meet everyone's desire for beauty, but also let the purse not be "very hurt". While others include the "legendary" nickel shop, and some personalities. In the five-point shop to buy things is very testing eyesight, a hundred pieces of clothing may not be able to try on, looking at the right money, not appropriate to leave; Shuttling between people is also a test of patience. However, as long as you can find good goods, usually weaker girls are also full of "combat effectiveness" at this time. The personality scattered in the streets and alleys is selling some products with a sense of design, and slowly walking slowly to see will have unexpected harvest.

In Taiwan, shopping mall activities mainly include "Mother's Day" in the first half of the year and "anniversary celebration" in the second half of the year, in these two periods, businesses will withdraw from very preferential activities, and some goods will even be discounted by 30%. And a few days before the general shopping mall activities, the relevant discount information will be "out", which is the need to "do your homework".

As for the tax refund, according to the regulations of the relevant departments in Taiwan, shopping in specific merchants (generally large malls and department stores) over 3,000 Taiwan dollars can be applied for tax refund. It should be noted here that only goods purchased within one month before departure can be refunded, and after the tax refund procedure is completed in the shopping mall with a valid document (for us, it is an entry permit), the final tax refund is collected at the customs when leaving the country. As for mailing, at first everyone did not think of this problem, as the purchase of more and more things, everyone finally realized the "cruel reality" - to take back the things are about to be heavier than their own weight, must be mailed! Because of the variety of things we need to send back, the safer and cheaper way is the post office parcel. The post office package is divided into land and sea, air and, of course, the price and speed are inversely proportional, the specific price can go to the post office to consult the staff (they are very enthusiastic), you can also take a price list, and then choose the mode of transportation according to your own requirements. In order to ensure the interests of tourists, Taiwan is establishing a "quality trust" system, so in the tourist spot to buy things, or to the regular. Second, beware of counterfeit money. Third, in and out of Taiwan, a passenger can only carry two cigarettes and two bottles of wine. In addition, according to experience, from Taiwan to Hong Kong or from Hong Kong to Taiwan, although the time is very short, but the duty-free goods on the plane, including cigarettes, alcohol, cosmetics and jewelry, etc., are good quality and cheap price, do not easily miss!
