Taipei Trip: Ximending (Night)

Taipei Trip: Ximending (Night) (Day 2) – The one-day trip didn’t end up at Keelung Night Market, we spent about 2 hours at there and we couldn’t continue anymore because of the super huge crowds at there. We hopped on a cab and went back to Taipei city, to Ximending where my hotel was located. Funny was I guided the cab driver on how to go back to our hotel with Google Maps because he’s from Keelung.
Huge sausage, Taiwan style!
Anyway, after dropping our bags of shopping bags at the hotel, we went to the famous Ximending shopping district to explore, hunt and eat again. Ximending, you can call it the Harajuku of Taipei, Bukit Bintang of Taipei, Times Square of Taipei, Causeway Bay of Taipei, Orchard Road of Taipei, East Nanjing Road of Taipei, or just anything equivalent you can think of, filled with vibrant billboards, shopping malls, retail outlet, youths and tourists.
Bird eggs, the sinful street food!
Street performer. Very entertaining. =)
Dancer from some local school, performing there to collect fund for their club.
The red one reads – DU LAN Guo Xiao. Du Lan is more a vulgar word in Malaysia, but it’s a place in Taiwan. LOL.
Oh cute leopard catty!!!!
If you are hunting for young and fashionable thing, or cute Taiwanese girls and boys, food, cats, dogs, then this is the place. HAHA. It’s really vibrant and happening, especially on the weekends night. Just glad that my hotel is so nearby and convenient to walk there.
Didn’t buy anything but ended up the exploration with meal of Taiwanese Lu Wei street food, a combination of braised pork organs and vegetables. Yums
