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.

In the Department stores and most of the larger stores there are set prices with no bargaining however it is possible to bargain at markets and any of the street side stalls and smaller shops. Nothing ventured nothing gained

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
