Great availability of shops and restaurants, but almost impassable on a Sunday afternoon, a vibrant but excessive place

To me, ximending is similar to Singapore ' Bugis' in which there is a combination modern retail shops and tent shops for items & food. However, the foods and drinks in ximending is more creative and cheaper as compare Singapore.

This place was fantastic to wander around both day and night. Plenty of restaurants and street food. At night there's so much activity going on its almost overwhelming to the senses with the street shows, lights, food cooking, people everywhere. Was really an enjoyable experience...More

Taiwanese hairstylist might not be knowing what tourist would want. Suggest you get your haircut locally.
