Tourist: I'd really like to do some shopping while I'm in Taipei. Are there any good shopping areas in the city? Guide: Of course. There are actually lots of fantastic shopping districts. Tourist:I've heard about one called Ximending. Is that a good place to go? Guide: It is. It's a really fun, exciting place. It's especially popular with younger people, and you'll find a lot of youth fashion there. Tourist: Oh, I think I might be a bit too old for that. Where else could I go? Guide: I would recommend the Xinyi District. There are several very good department stores in the area, and I'm sure you'll find everything you want. Tourist:Will I find a good bookstore there? I'd like to buy a couple of novels. Guide:There are two, actually. There's an Eslite bookstore, which is the biggest in Taiwan. It has a large section for English books. There's also a great bookstore in the 101 department store.
