I'll be stopping over for a day in Taipei this December, and am looking towards purchasing a digital camera. Anyone know places that have good prices/reputable? Thanks.

I haven't been to Taipei since 2002 so can't give too much advice about places as they change very frequently, but check out the local dept stores, there should be some walk-up shopping districts nearby that can help you find what you need, don't suppose you speak Mandarin?

I lived in Taipei for a while, but not since 99. It wouldn't be the first place I'd look for a camera. Cheap trinkets and great food? Sure. Clothes or high-end electronics? Go to Hong Kong. My only recommendation would be the Sogo (there are a couple). Big department store, you may find something there. And the pharmacies will sell you anything. And try Ding Tai Fung for the best dumplings you will ever have.

Peter, addresses for Sogo and the Ding Tai Fung? Thanks

I'd do a search... Ding Tai Fung is not too bad, there are better places to get dumplings though (mostly small restaurants), there are a couple more Ding Tai Fungs in various places, by the way (there's one in Arcadia, CA).

Don't tease Drizz at least give me a road where these small restaurants are located.

They are all over... there are some reasonably good ones near the CKS memorial, not sure what the roads are though.
