Recreation-minded Taiwanese and foreign residents alike will enjoy one of the city's larger sporting goods stores, owned and operated by Decathlon. As the number-one sporting goods retailer in Europe and third-largest in the world, the French company offers a full range of its products at its only Taiwan store. About 70 percent of the store's products are imported, from France and elsewhere, and fall into six main categories: camping/hiking, watersports, bicycling, team sports (soccer, basketball, etc.), fitness, and golf/badminton/tennis--all bearing the brand names of Decathlon and its other specialized labels like Quechua, Tribord, and Geologic. The vast range of goods includes bicycles, inline skates, tents, sleeping bags, diving masks and flippers, boots, shoes, wetsuits, tennis/badminton rackets, balls, athletic braces and supports, sunglasses, and a very large range of recreational clothing, from fleece pullovers to socks. Because these items come directly from the main company, prices are significantly cheaper. The best way to find Decathlon is to head south on WenXin South Road, turn right onto YungChun East Road and turn right again at YungChun Esat 1st Road.
