    its along HanKou Rd. its pretty near to ximending which is just across the rd. if u walk down from ximending, u will cover the stretch. prices are pretty consistent. they don't chop u cos u are foreigner. helps if u flirt with the sales girl. i only ended up with a lenspen and a manfrotto bracket.

    i not young mah. but maybe i better looking than u la.

    i think easiest is to make a list of the things u want n the local price. bring there compare. i bought the bracket cos its 25% cheaper than getting from cathay and i don't have to wait for the stock to come in.

    Hankou Road is one of the side-streets, there are more shops selling hi-fi and car stereos there. There are a few shops are along Bo Ai (博愛) Road, which runs across Hankou Road at the end, if you walk over from Ximending. Last time I was there, I think the official stocks for Canon only have local warranty, so no difference from grey stock.

    Edit: Now SGD very strong against TWD, so might have some potential good deals.
