This new shopping center occupies the B1 through fourth-floor levels of the old Idee Department Store building, with a hotel and other facilities soon opening upstairs. In contrast to traditional department stores, Bodhi's management hand-picked a range of outstanding local and foreign brands and products that are uniquely beautiful, useful and creative and, for the most part, not found anywhere else. Better-known European fashion labels can still be found in the fourth-floor "World Boutique" area. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu
A. Just one of Bodhi's 90-some unique brands, Latvian candle maker La Shike offers fragrant products made with all-natural ingredients.
B. The B1-level has five spacious, beautifully-decorated gourmet restaurants that are all new to Taichung, such as the pictured Thai One Thai.
C. Each floor was designed by a different architect and has its own distinct vibe--from the palatial ambiance of the first floor to youthful, vogue feel of the third floor, featuring fashions by independent European and Taiwanese designers.
