Bei-Tou, Taipei

Beitou 北投區 (Peitou in Wade-Giles) is a northern district of Taipei famous for its hot springs.

One of the dessert shop in Beitou.

Traditional yam and sweet potatoes balls dessert (serve cold or warm).

Chilled Japanese Mochi drizzled with chocolate/mango sauce, topped with grounded nuts.

Sweet potatoes with Beancurd dessert served warm.


Ximending (西門町) is the trendy shopping area just west of Downtown. It's popular with local students. If it's pink, plastic, and imported from Japan, you can probably find it on sale in a store here. To get to Ximending, take the MRT Blue (Bannan) Line and get off at Ximen Station.

Ximending is now called the “Harajuku” of Taipei.
