My partner and I decided to spend our countdown 2014/15 at Taipei 101 this year. One of the highlights of our trip is spending a relaxed afternoon browsing through the variety of shops selling unusual art merchandise within Red House at Ximending. Because of the season, there was also a huge tent setup right at the doorstep of Red House... More

The red house building located at Ximen station exit 3. The building was nice but nothing much to do, we took 10-15 mins walked inside the building. It has cafe and souvenir shop. On weekend, there is local handmade market beware to come if u would like to take picture with the red house

There isn't really a whole lot to do here, but the building looks pretty cool and there are some interesting displays about the history on the inside. Also there is a gift shop with some really cool postcards, so if you're looking for that kind of thing it might be worth a stop.

I have danced Tango in this venue for the Taipei Tango Festival. I absolutely loved this venue. My partner and I have been asked to perform there in 2016. We are looking forward to the event. We will post most about it on our site if you want to see the show. http://adamandtilly.com/calendar/

You won't have missed anything if you skip this but since you must visit Ximending, this Red House is just steps away from the MRT exit. There are not many shops in there as no one goes there for shopping when Ximending with its cheap price is just a few steps away. If you want to take a photo of... More

An iconic red house located at the junction of Ximen road. Five minutes walk from Ximen station and there is a souvenir shop for visitors. There is also a relax corner for visitors to sit down for some beverages. There are some exhibits to tell you about their history and those transformations it has been through.

Ximen Red House is filled with quirk and unique souvenirs which I don't think you can find anywhere else. Some of the postcards can even be made into paper models! And they are priced relatively affordable, starting from NTD$20. The top part of the building is sometimes used to house performances and shows. I just love the old-style architecture of... More

This was my favorite place in Taipei. It's known to be a hip area full of locals and tourists. There are many shops and restaurants for you to explore. The stores are not overly expensive either. You just have to look around for the right prices. There are many repetitive shops so don't be afraid to walk away. The reason... More
