  • The facade was under construction so they have a drape over the front of the building with a "fake" Red House image over it. It would've been nice to see this iconic building. The inside has a lot of cute and unique boutiques. You can definitely find something there for yourself or as a souvenir.
  • Good place to have a drink. Was overcharged/short changed for one of my drinks. So pay attention to the price and change.
  • Excellent fun, many different bars for different interests, and plenty of fresh air (come early for drink specials at many bars)
  • The time we visited this place, it was under renovation. So we did not appreciate the place thought it have some shops outside. Some local hand made products. The other side of this building, they have a bunch of gay bars and some gays shops...
  • An old, historic movie theater rejuvenated with modem touch. Good place to hang out for old guys and young.

Where to stay in Taipei

Taipei offers an impressive selection of accommodation options for every type of budget. For the least expensive rooms, consider areas near the main train station. You can usually find deep discounts online, so it pays to plan at least a month in advance. If you prefer to play it safe and don't mind paying a top price, go for one of the city's four- or five-star hotels, most of which offer quick access to popular tourist areas and some of the best shopping and dining spots.
