è¥¿é–€ç”º (Ximending) is a very popular place in Taipei where the young hang out.
With over six thousand vendors, and twenty theaters, Ximending is definitely a place any artists would love to perform in as well as a place for businessmen would want to have commercial space in.
You would be able to see almost anything we enjoy doing like shopping, theaters, coffee shops, bars, tattoo parlors, fast food restaurants, gift shops. If you’re looking for something new or trendy, you would surely find it there.
It is in è¥¿é–€ç”º (Ximending) where we tried Taiwan’s famous Pork Stew Rice (ç‡‰è‚‰é£¯). This is also where we tried the modern toilet restaurant, w/c is super cool. (I’ll post about modern toilet restaurant soon!)
è¥¿é–€ç”º (Ximending) is a very busy area. There are always a lot of people hanging around, but nights and weekends are their peak time.
Here is è¥¿é–€ç”º (Ximending) during the day:
Just to give a little history, è¥¿é–€ç”º (Ximending) got its name during the Japanese era where it was named after an administrative division. Later on, the Japanese decided to set it up into an entertainment & business area. è¥¿é–€ç”º (Ximending) became even more successful after Japan’s defeat.
Some surprises that we’ve seen in è¥¿é–€ç”º (Ximending) were:
- Cute Animals being displayed at night.
- A pink shop had a ritual when they were closing. I was in awe. I totally forgot to take a video of it! The six pretty ladies in pink would say something in japanese then they would keep bowing to us. They then would step back a few spaces and the door will close on them. You will be able to see that they were just staying where they were until the door completely shut down on them. hahaha what a nice sight to see!
è¥¿é–€ç”º (Ximending) is definitely a must-go see when you’re in Taiwan. Truly a hip place for us young & for the young at heart 😉
