    Not ideal for babies


    Too crowded ! My numerous visit to ximen but this time was the worst. People here aren’t as friendly anymore as per our last visit years back. Won’t be coming back so soon again :(

    Nice place to spend the night


    This is where the action is at night - lots of local and international brands/shops as well as restaurants. Magnet for young people, lots of eateries. Worth a visit

    An area for shopping, entertainment, and eating


    Ximending at night is well-lit with rows and rows of shops selling local delicacies, souvenir items, branded clothes and shoes, street food, different bubble milk teas among others. There are also pubs and theaters here. Street entertainers regularly perform and attract people to see them. Nice way to spend the night when in Taipei.

    Happening area


    A very hip and trendy area with lots of retail shops and eateries. And heaven for bubble tea lovers as some of the most famous brands are located there. Plus street food stalls. A mix of local Taiwanese brands meets International retail brands. Lots of tourists and especially young people. Ximending is very well known and iconic for Taipei so it should be on everyone's to do list.
