7 Reasons Why We Love 7-Eleven in Taiwan

Often referred to as just “Seven” by many people in Taiwan, 7-Eleven is the most popular convenience store in Taiwan, with locations all over the country. The shops truly redefine convenience by offering everything from tasty treats to bill pay services. Take a look below for reasons why people just can’t get enough of 7-11!

1. Location

With nearly 5,000 locations packed onto the tiny island of Taiwan, you can find a 7-11 on pretty much on every other block.

2. Snacks & Drinks Galore

7-11 is simply heaven when it comes to snacks and drinks. Aside from the typical munchies normally found at a convenience store, 7-11 also sells a variety of hot foods such as squid balls on skewers, tea-eggs, seaweed rice triangles, steamed buns, and more. You can even find bento boxes and have them heated up right in the store.

   

As for drinks, you can find just about everything – juices, teas, coffees and yogurt beverages (and some alcoholic ones as well!).

   

3. Bills, Bills, Bills

Have bills to pay? While it’s not our favorite thing to do either, 7-11 is there to make it really easy. You can pay utility, mobile phone, credit card (if under 20,000 NT), and parking ticket fees conveniently at any 7-11 store.

4. Services

7-11 stores also provide a wide range of other services – ranging from photo printing, making copies, faxing documents, purchasing event tickets and even calling a cab. You can also buy international and local phone cards as well as recharge your transportation fare “yo-yo” card. 7-11 also acts as a mini post office – buy stamps and envelopes and send letters.

5. Hanging Out

Whether it’s to escape the unbearably humid summer weather, or to grab a beer with friends before a night out, many 7-11 stores offer tables and seats for their patrons to sit and relax.

6. Buy Online

Want to make sure what you’re looking for is in the store? 7-11 also offers an online catalog site called 7net, selling everything from food and clothing, to books and beauty products. 7net is designed for people to purchase online and have their orders delivered for free to be picked up at their nearest 7-11.

7. Open 24 Hours

And probably the most convenient aspect of 7-11? Definitely that all locations are open 24 hours a day! Always there when you need something – whether it’s for a pre-party drink or paying your phone bill.

Did we miss anything? If there’s anything else you love about 7-11, tell us in the comments!
