This is an interesting building with some good boutique type shops inside and nice bars surrounding it. However, if you are short on time for sightseeing you could probably miss this.

Cute little cluster of gay bars right by Xi Men district. Friendly staff and crowd. Safe and fun! Great for photos evenings and day. The bars are most alive at night after 8pm.

There's some history behind this building, you will find some shops inside it and stalls outside the building. You'll find nice souvenirs for friends and family here as most of the items are specially made and designed by local designers. I would visit this place if you intend to spend half a day exploring Ximending shopping and eating. Stuff here... More

I would not make a special trip to see it. It happened to be near where our hotel was. Slightly interesting architecture but nothing inside.

The Red house is located right to the opposite of the metro station, easy to see. But as a tourist, I didn't really find any special there. Yes, you could see some small shops there, mainly selling cloth. And it's so-call cultural and creative industry. If you were a teenager, probably, you'll spend some time here to find out if...

There are sometimes interesting exhibitions or concert inside. So step in and enjoy the hundred years of Red House history.

A classical architecture and it turns into a great place for entrepreneurs to come together to,share their craft and creation. Great place to visit in the evening. Well worth the visit.

The building itself is old. Much touted but not much to see inside. Consists of little small shops selling trinkets and souvenirs. No handicrafts except maybe some stalls setup outside on weekends. Also some little food shops behind the building, nothing special. A teenager hangout. Very disappointed.

Many stalls are operated by local designers and they have really interesting + unique stuffs. However, the cost of the item may not be that cheap but I have to say it's really worth buying. :) Previously bought... More
