Guanghua Digital Plaza in Taipei is the Mecca for nerds and geeks looking for spare computer parts in Taiwan. The area around the plaza is also filled with countless other electronics stores. It is a one-stop shop for all your electronics needs.
Guanghua Digital Plaza first started in 1973 under the old Guanghua Bridge which spanned the old railroad line in Taipei. During the time that Taipei's railroad was moved underground in 1992, Guanghua Digital Plaza also moved to an underground location on Bade Road, and then to a temporary building in 2006. on Civic Boulevard. By this time, many electronics shops had opened in the area. The main Guanghua Plaza building was completed in 2008, which has seven stories and over 196 vendors. Two other buildings were added to the plaza in 2018 and 2021, which added hotel rooms, offices, and restaurants.
Currently, the area acts as a venue for the reveal of many new products from many big-name companies such as Acer, Asus, Microsoft, and Intel.
This electronics market attracts thousands of visitors each day.
11 AM to 9 PM every day

I have been to Guanghua Digital Plaza many times. I usually buy my cell phones here, and I have also bought other audiovisual and computer equipment. It is a great place to shop for exactly what you need, and it is also a convenient experience with so many shops right next to each other.
View of the main building from Civic Boulevard. Don't get here too early in the morning or nothing will be open. The shops usually open at 11 AM.
There are many alleys behind the main plaza that are also full of little electronics shops.
My favorite shop is Pinguang Shuwei 品光數位 which sells used electronics such as cell phones, cameras, and laptops. I have bought multiple used iPhones from this place.
