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 and vibrant area


    We went there during the day and it was really lively. There's many food options, including night market type foods. It's basically a shopping area, with movie theaters and restaurants.

    shopping for everybody


    If you have limited time in Vietnam and have to choose one place to visit, Visit XIMENDING! it's a culmination of all the night markets, food and all good things in between! We love this area of Taipei!

    Exciting Ximending


    I stayed at Amba Hotel, so I am in the middle of the Ximending area. The place is bustling with food and shops, which opens at 11AM. All the must eat foods are located in this place. Do not forget to stay till the night when the place gets vibrant and full of people. The place also starts to open the street foods, which are all interesting and yummy. Street performers entertain the place. Ximending is the not to miss place to visit when you're in Taipei.
