ATT 4 FUN is filled with both international and homegrown clothing brands, while Eslite Xinyi is the biggest bookstore in Taiwan – and open 24-hours too. For a departure from the norm, head to Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, an expansive creative space where you'll discover unique crafts and works by local artists.
There's no way you haven't heard of Ximending, the entertainment district that traces its roots back to the Japanese era in the 1980s. This popular shopping district gathers the best of youth culture, from cinemas and karaoke joints to funky accessory shops filled with colourful socks and vibrant hairpins. With better-known brands like Uniqlo and ABC Mart around, you'll be spoilt for choice.
