Ximending is one of the busiest district in Taipei. It has a lot of restaurants, from the cheapest to the most expensive ones, had shopping centers where we can buy clothes, shoes and bags for cheap amount. This was our first destination when we arrived at Taipei as we really wanted to see the Modern Toilet Restaurant for lunch.
We made some scouting a bit to check some clothes and jackets. My cousin bought a leather jacket for only $350 (Taiwan dollar).
To get to Ximending, you can take the MTR at blue line and get down to Ximen Station.
