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.

    Mixture of varieties


    Ximending is one of the earliest developed district in Taipei city! My grandma called it town center. Until today, it is as crowded as ever with most foreigner visitors mixed with local youngsters! Restaurants, snacks, movie theaters, small stands, street performers, cosplayers......etc! You name it, they gave it! Even I goes there just to charcoal out what are the latest youngsters chase after!

    Shopping and Food Mecca of Taiwan


    Ximending Night Market known for it's high-end fashion and hosting a bustling night market filled with hawkers of variety of foods and a must try to eat "stinky tofu" which I did not try (the smell is too much), bubble tea / milk tea / bubba teas you named it. It's a heaven to shopaholis, to those who loves fashion etc. It's crazy you can spend hours to walk and look around and get lost at some point. It is a huge place, a stretch of streets with foods, clothes all means of small shops both sides of the streets. I enjoyed visiting it, been their twice and I can go there every time if I want to.

    I visited this place on weekdays and weekend. Most shops were open 10 ish and close at 10.30 p. m. Lots of clothes, shoes, mobile accessories, toys, cosmetic & pharmacy shops. Also a lot of places for eat and drink.

    Great fun, food, fun, and stuff to buy


    I've been to a lot of these types of streets, and this one is pretty good. Clean, lots of food, music, things to buy, lots of people around and well lit. I was staying near this district and walked there every evening after work.
