    Excellent shopping and lots to see!


    We enjoyed all the claw games all over! There are lots of stores to shop at and things to see. We had a good time walking around.

    Exiting place to shop at


    Comparing Zhongxiao Sogo, or Wufenpu, I found Ximending one of the better place for shopping. It is vibrant, there are plenty to eat around there, cinemas, buskers and lots to see. This is a place for young people to hang out, adding on to the liveliness of the area. I drank the Chengdu Starfruit juice that is located just right outside of exit 6 of Ximen MRT station. Lots of sportswear shops with prices that I find cheaper than that in Singapore.

    A Lively place


    Ximending, the Harajuku of Taipei is correct but with a unique twist !!! Yes, the young ones and young once do hang out here with a variety of shops for everybody. But of course you have the unique attractions as the west gate, the RED HOUSE and the Tai you temple, You may notice the RED HOUSE & the west gate but the temple seems to be hidden as part of a block of buildings. Shop around with the stalls selling "youth" products all around the place. Of course there are great places to eat like the MODERN TOILER RESTAURANT and the AY CHUNG RICE NOODLE RESTAURANT which had a real long line. This is a must see if you visit Taipei.
