Taipei Ximending is the hippest area in Taipei, also known as ‘Harajuku’ of Taipei with very distinct Japanese influence in that area. It is very famous among the young population of Taipei with lots of fashion boutiques, restaurants, books & other entertainment outlets. I totally love this place due to its vibrancy, and of course all the good shopping I could get from Ximending. I bought shoes, clothes and accessories from different boutiques there until I ran out of cash for the day, else I would have bought a lot more. This place is so cool~!
