Guys,

I'll be deployed to Taiwan for 3 weeks for some military training starting this Friday. During this 3 weeks, we'll have 3 days of tour and trips around Taipei area.

Can anyone here tell me what to look out for at Taipei? Any G-Shock specialty shops to recommend? What special G-Shocks are on sale there? Any Multi band Watches over there?

Many thanks! :-!

I think there are some members here from Taiwan who can help. I remember one of the good places to shop for G-Shocks is XiMenDing. You might want to check that out. :)

Have a safe trip! :-!

Don't forget to try the Taiwanese beef noodles, great stuff!

I've worked there for 3 years and i miss the place! Try out their chow fan, chow mein, and dumplings they're the best :-!

I wasn't that much interested in Gs that time so i have no idea where to look for. Sorry :-s

I wished I was already into G-Shock by the time I visited Taipei Xi Men Ding last June. :-(

I remember I was in Rainbow Hotel one of the nights relaxing after a long day's walk, and I felt tremors lol.

Guys, I'M BACK from Taiwan! Touched down on Saturday, than busy with personal and family stuff. That is why I only started posting today.

Alright, come straight to the point. I got a G from one of the stores called "Hi You", in Xi Men Ding. The shop is facing directly the train station exit. The place is really big, and I got lost a couple of times already so this is the only watch shop I could find that sell unique Gs around. Other stores don't seem to sell unique Gs, though.


This will be my Grail G, for now. Reason? A Multi Band G in Singapore IS A RARE SIGHT! So let my new GW 9100 say "Hi" from Singapore!

Here are some shots, as usual.

Standard shot



Wrist Shot



My 2 Gulfman together, the standard and Atomic version.



Lastly, the famous different turtle shot from the back!

Hey Roy, welcome back. And great to hear that you had a good time in Taipei! Any other pictures from your trip?

Congratulations on that great new Gulfman - looking good!

So where is this "Hi You" shop in Ximending? Is it close to the subway station?

Nope, no other pictures. Camera ain't allowed in military camps. I don't like the hassle of surrendering our camera to them during training, than get it back once its over.

And yes, the "Hi You" shop is really near the "Xi Men" subway station. Get off the station, cross the road, you'll see this really big Baby-G poster. Thats it. I might have some pictures taken from a friend's disposable camera. Still waiting for him to develop it. :-!
