“A hidden treasure vault for Shopping” Not much was written about this location stumbled across it when was chatting with our driver (we rented a car) for a good place to shop for shoes, and he recommend this place. It is just outside of Gongguan Station (MRT), as this place is next to Taipei University so the selections there are geared towards the student population which is why the clothes, shoes and accessories there are very cheap, all four of us ens up buying a few pairs of sport shoes from there :P did not plan to buy it originally but it's too cheap to pass :P Besides shopping, there are a lot of good food there, don't only look for those big restaurant and etc, try those little shop, I had the BEST Japanese Ramen here in a little hole in the wall shop :P don't remember the name sorry.
