台湾人很热情的   :P

ermmm .... I think this should be in the "Travel" thread bah? ???

assuming that you're going to Taipei?

food wise, I think Japanese Food is cheap there and you can try the original Din Tai Fung ....
the street food from Shilin like oyster mee-sua and orh-jian,  small-sausage wrap big-sausage etc etc.
and smelly toufu etc etc

Taichung got wild clubbing scene also .... :-[

"staycation" hotels are quite popular there amongst the locals and quite reasonably priced.... so you can google around,  I think people like to stay around Shilin area or anyway along the train lines since it is the easiest way to get around.

First, where in Taiwan are you going to? If you have not buy the airticket and is just planning to go, 1 week is not enough for 5 recommended places. But if you are going to Taipei or Taichung, then you can consider these few places:

Taipei

1. Jiufen, shifen, pingxi line, kee lung (miaokou night market)
2. Wufenpu, Raohe night market
3. Taipei 101, zoo, xingguang sanyue, xingyi district
4. CKS memorial hall
5. Danshui old street
6. Beitou hot spring

Taichung

1. Sun Moon Lake, Culture village
2. Cingjing farm
3. Shinshe castle, flowersea, mushroom farm
4. Fengjia night market

As for must buy...I don't buy anything during traveling. But I see many places selling black sugar ginger tea, snacks, biscuit ect...

Bus from Taichung to Taipei: NT$260
Train in Shifeng: NT$15
Shinshe Castle Entry fee: NT$250
Cingjing 青青草原: NT$200
Sun Moon Lake Package: NT$680
Night Market food: NT$10 – NT$200

I stayed 5 nights in Taipei Ximending, about NT$5,900 in total. If you have time, visit NTU (national taiwan university). The campus is very nice and peaceful.
