Showcasing Taipei's Walking District at Night
It didn’t occur to me that my husband and I would be able to travel outside the country for free. But it did! Thanks to my husband’s company for giving their tenured employees of five years and more a free trip outside the country including their families but with a limit.

For the past years, they had been traveling locally within the different islands of the Philippines only but this year, they leveled up and was the first time to travel internationally. 

According to their CEO, **Taiwan** was just the first of the many international trips. So as long as an employee has rendered five years and more, they can join again. 

We were definitely blessed with this because everything was already laid out for us and all we had to do was just show up on our scheduled itineraries.

On our first night in **Taipei**, we had a free time to roam around the city. Our hotel was *Papa Whale Hotel* which was just within Ximen’s vicinity.

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171088/DSC01678_f7eydy.jpg)

So my husband and I spent thousands of steps exploring the walking district of **Ximen**. From the **Ximending Night Market** to the outskirts of the area. We even had time for a time-lapse of the city lights.

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171280/DSC01647_nygxg7.jpg)

The side streets remind me of the oldest street in Cebu, it has a lot of vendors and stalls with assorted kinds of items for sale.

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171318/DSC01681_skjykc.jpg)

Just like any other city, its city streets are filled with cars and vehicles. There were also many motorcycles and scooters mostly used for food deliveries. And of course bicycles too!

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171368/P1520451_ofdksn.jpg)

And then just like Japan, the streets are also filled with random arcades and these ones above me, you insert a coin and you’ll get a random item. Those who got kids with them would surely run out of coins after.










![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171462/P1520467_xf2tjt.jpg)

Within reach was also the One Piece shop selling every One Piece anime fan could ever think of.

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171533/DSC01683_y39iv6.jpg)

And there were several street performers we came to see as well while walking around. Here’s one guy who has some real balancing skills.

I remember also seeing dancers and singers, others would even bring their own instruments! I realize that Taiwanese people loves entertainment too.

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171554/DSC01730_mmvb3h.jpg)

In fact, every performer got their own share of audiences and they are willing to give money for the entertainment they received from the respective performers.

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171659/DSC01764_txo6sz.jpg)

See the kids above, they were really attentive and would clap every time they love the performance.

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171613/DSC01757_aeyypn.jpg)

Of course walking around would be tiring and will make one hungry. That was the case for us but, don’t fret because there are hundreds if not thousands of eateries along Ximending. From street foods to luxurious dining and even to their famous milk teas.

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171635/P1520075_km0a4b.jpg)

The milkteas here are affordable I must say and they would even give discounts. I bought my first brown sugar booba bubble tea for only Php60. In the Philippines, our milk teas cost more!o

![](https://res.cloudinary.com/dmuksl47x/image/upload/v1567171673/DSC01774_ts4qxx.jpg)

What is so nice about Taipei is that it is safe! Walking at night, even in the dark parts of the street, we didn’t feel any fear from those whom we meet on the streets.
