Ximending known as the "Shibuya of Taipei" is the source of Taiwan's fashion and Japanese sub-culture, attracting over three million shoppers a month.
With many fashion boutiques, restaurants, cinemas, clubs and performances it is extremely popular and an essential destination for tourists worldwide.
Ximending is so-called from its position outside the west gate of Taipei City. It was the first and largest pedestrian area built in Taiwan and the best place for a walkaround. Developed during the Japanese era to be an entertainment and business area, it has florished to become the urban hub of creativity and innovation.
Established as a well known theatre street during the 1930's, as Taipei City developed the Eastern district in the 1990's business began to decline. In 1999 the area was pedestrianised, a move which attracted young customers and prosperity.
Because of its history, Ximending has several historical sites. Built during the Japanese era, the Ximending Mazu Temple is an important monument as well as the Red House Theatre, originally a market.
Ximen market is the oldest existing market in the city. During the day, Ximending is quiet and much like any other street in Taipei. In the evening the area becomes an exuberant neon-lighted night life and shopping zone.
It is a mecca for every young local and tourist alike to gather here every evening to dine, shop and socialise while listening to the latest music flowing through the streets.
This trendy and unique area is home to numerous department stores, shops and stalls featuring fashion, music, technology, beauty salons, karaoke, restaurants and many more.
