When it comes to shopping in Hsinchu, the options vary from one of the oldest night markets in Taiwan to modern megaplexes and malls. The market is the beating heart of the city, attracting locals and visitors from across the island and across the world. Aside from the great selection of low-cost street snacks, you’ll find a good choice of souvenirs, clothes, accessories and more. Smaller markets around the city are usually more specialised, giving them a distinctive vibe of their own.

Among the malls in Hsinchu’s shopping scene, you’ll find a good choice of big-name department stores and high-end fashion outlets. The choice, size and luxury are not up to Taipei levels, but there’s still plenty to see, do and buy.
