“Fun Times at Ximen”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

I had lived in Taiwan for a few years and I love this place for it's food, shopping and vibe.

Shopping tip: Ask for the best price for what you want to purchase. And it helps if you go with a local (or if you can speak Mandarin).

Food tip: The good food places are always packed.

“Artsy shops in the Red House”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

If you love craft markets and design, this is the place for you although there are just a handful of shops. One shop was just dedicated to selling camera straps! Another had African batik-like cloth made into clothes, shoes. A few sell interesting T-shirts with one of a kind prints. Worth spending an hour or so just browsing here. Note: closed on Mondays.

“Nice hang out place, must try Ah Chong Mien Sien (noodle)!”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

You cant miss this place when u are in Taipei, it's accessible via metro to Xi Men Ting Station, just ask around for direction when u depart the station, it's < 5 min walk.

The special noodle is really nice! u will want it more :)

Xi Men Ting itself is a must check in place when u are in Taipei, for shopping, food, local young taipei culture, so just visit this nice place while u are there.

“I like the vitality of Ximending”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Go there on weekends especially, there are lots of people of course but also many street food stands and street performers. Some of them are really very good. There are many interesting shops and eateries if you prefer to sit down. I just enjoy the place.
