Have you been to 7-11 in Taiwan? Many tourists love visiting the 7-11 outlets because they have so many items inside and it’s not expensive. They are reasonably priced (unlike Singapore) and there are so many unique items. It’s like a one-stop convenience shop where you can get everything you want without having to travel far.
