The Taipei National Palace Museum is a world-class museum that hosts an eclectic collection of treasures kept by generations of Emperors ruling from the Forbidden City. In WWII, Nationalist troops seized the most important pieces in order to prevent invaders from ransacking China's national treasures. A twist of fate eventually brought these treasures to Taiwan.
The Taipei National Palace Museum is designed in the style of a Northern Chinese palace. The museum is home to hundreds of thousands of historical relics that make up the world's most comprehensive and precious collection of ancient Chinese artifacts. The entire collection covers 5,000 years of China's historical and artistic achievements.
The museum provides Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish and Korean language guides and museum-related literature. The museum is a must- see on any visitor's itinerary.

Ximending districtThis is a exciting city. There are many shops and restaurants. You can find most type of restaurants in this place including American fast foods etc. There are many young people are hanging around. For a tourists, it probably doesn’t worth to make extra stop to see this area, but this will be nice location to find hotel, so you don’t get board...

Great hostels, Shopping and good food at XimendingXimending is a nice place to stay when in Taiwan. Our hostel was located in Ximending and it was perfect in terms of commuting, eating and shopping. It has it's own train station so it's the best spot for a hotel/hostel. It has cute Taiwanese cake shops. Bobba shops were abundant everywhere. I loved shopping here - yes they do have the big retails stores like H&M, Superdry, a good Seiko shop but i loved the small clothes shop. I guess most of the clothes came from Korea when I talked to the store staff. Food stalls were abundant at night. Do look for 1. Stinky tofu 2. Flour rice noodle 3. Dream Colour 4. Corn with cheese 5. I still like the fried chicken - poppers or hotstar is fine 6. beef cubes which were torched 7. shaved peanut ice cream 8. Lu Tian Lu Lou Mei -- I came here to buy the cheap mochi and sweets but locals lined up for the duck and chicken items - duck tongue, chicken feet and neck. I
