Taking the MRT from Taipei City Hall to Ximen is pretty easy (Bannan Line). There's a lot of shopping (mid-priced shopping, lol) and again, a lot to eat. At night, it looks like NY Times Square (there's a movie theatre too). If you venture out a little bit, you'll find the BEST beef noodle soup! There'a always a line (and there's two stories!). Enjoy!
