    Learn to say no.: Taiwanese Business people

    by Kyle-Taiwan Written Apr 25, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taiwanese are fierce business/salespeople. They could talk a monk into a new sailboat i think.

    They often keep on going until you buy something, learn to say no. really, its hard sometimes. when i am really stuck i just pretend i cant speak mandarin and i dont understand them, they soon give up.

  • Shi Lin Night Market: Largest Taipei Night Market

    by bakerloo Updated Sep 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Close to Taipei's Chientan tube station, a visit to Shi Lin is the way to throw a novice into the hustle and bustle of the night market. The energy and friendliness of the vendors makes a visit to this market worthwhile. While certainly the place to try new foods, purchase cheap clothing and other items, the availability of quality cultural items unique to the market was less than expected. Know how to bargin (pen and paper helps) or bring a local friend - expect to pay more as a tourist. Though it is safe and the locals are friendly, keep your money close to you, as with everywhere the crowds are ideal for pickpockets.

    What to buy: Food items
    Various seemingly useful knick knacks

    What to pay: $5US
