    Hi all,
    My family and I will be going to Taiwan in 2 days. We'll be spending most of our time in the Taipei area but also a week in Kenting. Does anyone have any tips where I could buy wetsuits (for swimming/snorkeling) for my 5-year-old and also my 2-year-old (because she wants everything her brother has!). I know that there are quite a few manufacturers in Taiwan, so I am not looking for Western brand names. I just don't know where I could go and find some. Could anyone here point me to a store or outlet, etc.?

    Alternatively, please let me know if this endeavor is pointless and I will scramble to find something here in the US tomorrow.

    Thank you all in advance!

    Yeah, I will PM you some contact info for a company in Taipei that can measure the kids and make custom-fit wetsuits (not sure how long it'll take -- probably a week or so).

    Are you looking for something off-the-rack for immediate use? That might not be so easy. I'll also PM you some contact info for a company in Tainan but that's not really on your itinerary, is it? And for kids that age, probably nothing in stock that fits.
