It is a night market with shopping malls everywhere. Near Cinema also! Lot's of food and things to choose. Very friendly people. Lot's of choices of souvenirs can be bought here. Can compare to SHIBUYA in TOkYo maybe because of the branded shopping malls here, while they're having a night market also. It's so fun in here!
When choosing Taipei Hotel, we considered that it was near Ximending, Taipei, so that we could enjoy Taiwanese food without having to travel a long way. The hotel we stayed in was only two roads away from Ximending, Taipei. There was no stifling heat during the day when the breeze blew in the evening. It was the best time to go to Ximending for food. Strolling in the crowded streets of Ximending, looking at strange things and experiencing Taiwan's people's feelings, the streets are lined with old-fashioned arcade-style buildings, the first floor is shops, a variety of businesses, eat, wear, travel all-embracing, Ximending also has a "Chengpin Bookstore", the night market is very lively. The delicacies of streets and alleys are also dazzling. In the evening, there are vendors offering homemade food. Salt-baked chicken with vegetables or something is also a good dinner. Find it here. There are also performances of "street artists" in the evening. There is also a red building in Ximen, where many young people are singing and dancing. Night market stalls are crowded, mostly original items, which are novel and interesting. In the daytime, Ximending does not feel like a place with a dull light at night. However, businesses are also operating. The buildings on the streets have the traces of years'rings. Among them, old buildings such as ancestral temples stand on the streets, and they do not feel too abrupt. The special feature is Taiwan's various snacks, which are inexpensive and can be chosen freely. More famous is the "old Shanghai Tianlu" bittern taste, a lot of bittern, you can buy some taste. There are also Taiwan's snacks, pineapple crisp, rolled sugar, shops have free tasting, at night there are vendors to launch homemade food, salted chicken with vegetables or something, is also a good dinner. There is fresh juice on the fruit stand. The price is NT$80 a cup. Lao Tianlu Brine Taste" is the first representative of Ximending cuisine, such as duck tongue, duck wings, chicken feet, chicken wings, dried beans and so on. It is Lao Tianlu's signboard, and it is a delicacy designated by domestic and foreign tourists or big stars.

There are a lot of artzy cute handmade collectable items for you to explore at the Redhouse surrounding area and plenty of intresting yummy food at Ximending. At the same time get yourself expose in their Tv entertainment programs. There are a lot of musical dancing video shooting at Ximending (especially weekends and public holidays). Don't forget to look out for the street artists performances, *street artists from all over the world* fly in to Taipei just to get a chance to make appearance in Ximending. Ximending is the place where star hunters/model hunters like to spot for new faces.

For the first time in Taipei, Ximending must have come to punch in. Ximending is the most important consumer business circle and trend gathering place in Taipei West District. There are Siemens Red Building, American Street, Tattoo Street, Film Street and all kinds of special shops. There are also classic snacks such as Azong noodles, duck meat flat, as well as STAYREA Chaozhou clothing store and various sports clothing brand stores invested by Axin Mayday. Ximending is also a street performance place for street artists and teenagers. That night we saw a group of middle school students singing and publicizing there. American Street is full of American style hip-hop clothes, personal wardrobes and graffiti creation, which paints Taipei with exotic dress. Traffic: Take MRT Bannan Line, Songshan Xindian Line to Ximen Station and get off at Exit 6.
