Where to shop in Taipei blog: East Metro Mall
This shopping area extends from Zhongxiao Fuxing metro station to Zhongxiao Dunhua. Listening to “mall” sometimes I think it sells expensive items, but the price of clothing and accessories at this market is cheaper than buying at night markets too. So I recommend you to visit this shopping district before going to the night markets to avoid the feeling of “regret” when you miss buying an item with a “more expensive” price at East Metro Mall.
