My first visit to Ximending

2/20/2010 Taiwan Explorer
The famous and popular Ximending.

Ximending 西門町 is one of the most popular areas in Taipei. It's often called the "Harajuku of Taipei", because it's so popular with young people. My first impression was good, but I couldn't see much, because it was raining a lot. There were many shops, cafés, theaters, vendors, hawkers and street performances and I mostly saw young people there. Read more about Ximending in my popular Ximending introduction post.

Here are a few more photos we made on the evening in February, 2010:

Ximending: Rain doesn't scare people away.

Food is aplenty, in this case Korean snacks.

Sausages are popular.
