    Must Explore


    A shopping and gastronomic street food experience. Our friends and I were not able to fully explore Ximending due to bad weather condition. One of the favorite things that I enjoy is buying Uma Hana products and enjoying the street food such as grilled sausage, shallot pancake, and many more.

    Like Ameyoko market at Japan


    I stayed in the hotel in this area. It’s a shopping market. I try a bubble milk tea and mala hotpot in the ximending. If you want to buy a gift or shopping i would recommend this place.

    Nothing fantastic


    Basically, 4 types of shops : 1) Sports goods stalls (Nike, Adidas, Rebook, etc) one after another and sometimes repeating themselves every other block. 2) Stalls selling prepacked Taiwanese snacks like pineapple tarts. 3) Street food stalls or bubble tea stores. 4) Cheap low quality souvenirs shops.

    Best place to stay in Taipei


    It is a shopping and foodie haven. Yoy can shop brands like Uniqlo, H&M, addidas and make up brands like innisfree and the faceshop, to cheap finds for bags and clothes. There are local brands too. Best food to try is the cheesy potato and hot star chicken. The famous Modern Toilet is also located in Ximending. Also, main attractions are a few stations away via MRT.
