When it opened in 1973, this electronics market was just a loose collection of market stalls selling transistor radio components and user manuals to serious geeks. These days, it’s housed in a slick six-story building and carries everything from iPads to new release DVDs to flat-screen TVs. That said, the top floor still caters to those hardcore techies (mainly students from the nearby Taipei University of Science and Technology) with the raw components needed to build computers and other devices.

WHY WE LIKE IT
If you’re in the market for the latest gadgets (or if you left your iPod on the plane), this is definitely the place to come. And for non-Apple products, you can often negotiate prices down.
GOOD TO KNOW
Haggling is expected in most of the shops, although for the latest technology and Apple products, you might not be able to budge the price very far. The alleys around the market are also packed with stalls and shops selling electronics. These items are more likely to be fakes or poor quality, but you can also get better deals (the items at GuangHua are legitimate products).
