    Kingdom of youth


    Ximending is in Wanhua, the oldest part of Taipei. Ximending is favorite haunt of Taipei's young people. Its attractions revolve around three things -- eating, shopping and entertainment. Eating is a form of recreation. Apart from the many restaurants, "bubble tea" is a favorite fun drink for which Taiwan is well-known. Shopping revolves around trying on many garments until you finally find something eye-catching. Ximending has many forms of entertainment, ranging from buskers to movie theatres. The Red House is a Ximending landmark. By the way, Ximending is busiest in the evening, when it can become quite crowded.

    Today, I would like to recommend the place where is very popular with Taipei youth and tourists — Xingmending. There are four reasons. The first of all is plenty of restaurants. People can eat not only traditional Taiwanese food but also innovative Taiwanese food. The next is Xingmending is a good place to go shopping. It’s full of stores and shops. People can buy fashionable clothes and souvenirs there. Besides of delicious food and shopping paradise, People can watch street performances and exhibitions. The final reason is the Red House, the western-style building. The Red House is a historical building which is built in 1908. People can cultural and creative products there. Above are the reasons why I recommend Xingmending.
