Best department store shopping
45 Zhong Xiao East Road, Section 4
106 Taipei, Taiwan
Da'an District (Ta-an)
The SOGO Taipei branch is nothing short of a shopper's paradise. The huge Disney Small World-themed clock over the entrance way greets guests as they escape the heat. The huge multi-story department store has everything from name brands to local Taiwanese foods. Prices are expensive, but it's worth a stroll if you have the time, and the basement food court is a fantastic place to catch a bite in the cool air conditioning.
