    Is there a recommended place in Taiwan to buy a BC? Probably a Scubapro. Pricey?

    Taiwan is not know for inexpensive imported dive gear, especially Scubapro. Most locals buy from their instructors or dive shops but there has been a trend of mail order lately, primarily due to the cost difference. You can look on Scubapro's website for the authorized dealer in Taiwan.

    dredging up an old thread...

    i am looking to get some gear. from what little i have seen, name brands tend be pricey. there doesn't seem to be much in terms of dive shops... at least in the taipei area.
    has anyone had any experience buying online & shipping to taiwan? i am curious if import tax would be an issue.

    anyways, any suggestions on dive shops or online options would be appreciated.

    Yes, import duty is an issue to worry about. Google the issue and you'll get a page from FedEx or DHL or another shipping company telling you all that you need to know.

    The Scuba Shop is somewhere in the Taipei area. I've never been to their retail shop, only had them send stuff to me by mail. Here's their website: Scuba SHOP ¼ç¤ô©öÁʺô

    Scuba Shop is on the end of Minsheng Rd. It's east of Songshan rail station. Got a good deal there on some boots today!
