Overwhelming amount of people and things. Easy to find on your own - just a short walk from the metro. Cannot imagine going with a tour/group as it seems nearly impossible to stay together... and it was fun to explore at your own pace. Trinkets...More

Visited over CNY with half of Taipei. An eclectic group of shops, food and arcade style games. Interesting to wander around.
