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.

    Great Place to Spend Time and Money


    The Shopping District was always full of people, and the place full of shops selling fashion, food, souvenirs, bubble tea, and many more. Just go to the Ximen MRT Station, take the Exit 6, and you'll directly directed to the gate, and enjoy your shopping or walking. Best time to visit is from 4 pm till midnight.

    Not a must


    If you haven't been to Asia before, you're probably going to like the sights, sounds and food. If you are Asian and from Hong Kong, Seoul, or Japan I would give this a miss or just a quick walk through.It's the same stuff, similar to Mongkok or a number of streets in Osaka. It gets tiring very quick and it's the same old stores for the same prices.

    Nice shopping area and a lot to see


    Ximending is always a crowdes area especially at night. There are various shops to shop around. Do not expect a cheap price here. Try to have Ay Chung floor noodle

    Combo spots for tourist!


    1. Easy spots for outstanding photo on the decorated street with Asian aroma. 2. Even 7-11 there near lux cinema can be a different spot for taking photo as it looks all Pepsi & Lay’s style! 3. Many drugstores nearby for sufficient choices if you want to buy some new cosmetic/health/beauty products for yourself, friends and families. 4. A lot of restaurants and street foods next to each other for you to try all the local flavours 5. Great place to stay in with bunch of hotels and very convenient to go dating and shopping around the blocks by walk, also you can find tube and bus nearby to pop on and off.
