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.

    Fun, Enjoyable, lots to see and eat!


    I definitely reccomend a visit to Xi Men Ding! Fun area, lots of shops, arcades, food stands etc. Its a great area to buy local snacks, drink some bubble tea, and walk around! Its better to go at night, but still alright if you go during the day!

    Happening Place especially in night and weekends


    Visited this place a few times and at different time of the day. The crowd was different in the day time and night time. It is very much alive after 7 pm and was pretty crowded on Saturday night. Best recommended for youngsters.

    No reason not to go unless you've been here tons of times. I stayed in the area so I was there everyday. Easy to find good food with a breakfast street that sells traditional taiwanese breakfast.

    Pedestrian shopping street!


    Ximending has the vibe of Myeongdong in Seoul and Nihonbashi and Dotombori in Osaka - same pedestrian street set-up, a lot of stores, food stalls at night! It is nice to just roam around the streets as they come alive after 6PM, complete with bands doing some shows right outside the Ximen train station exit. We had fun lining up for fried chicken pops, buying milk tea and browsing the many shops in the area. When your feet give up, so can rest in the many benches scattered all around as you enjoy people-watching.
