    A maze of neon shopping and dining


    Ximending comes alive at night. Crowded with people and countless places to eat, buy stuff or people watch. We enjoyed a lot of street theatre and performances. We stayed a week in Ximending and never get bored exploring the warren of alleys and streets. Its less interesting by day, my suggestion would be evening visits. There is a subway station opposite the red house area so easy enough to get there.

    This area is bustling with life in the evening. Enjoy a evening walk along this street for shopping and food!

    If you are crazy about shopping, this is the best place to go. Shops of all sorts can be found within the area. From food, apparel to souvenir, everything can be found here. Some food shops have very long queue so I thought they might be selling great food. Sadly, I got no time in trying them. It's a pretty big area and lots of people.

    Nice Night Market


    This night market is nice. Though you have to walk around 5-10 minutes from the subway station to arrive at the inner part of the market. But overall this place is good and the food are amazing. You can try to eat a lot of food with cheap to medium range of price.

    Good Shopping Area


    It’s a place which blends the old and the new consisting of modern shopping malls and old shops if you walk further inwards. You can taste local Taiwanese breakfasts and modern foods. You can buy souvenirs here also...normally buy 5 pieces to get a free one. It’s a must to visit this place. Night time is usually good but it’s also okay to visit during daytime.
