I don’t mind staying here every time I go to Taipei. If I had to describe the Zhongxiao Dunhua area, I’d say it’s similar to Harajuku (Tokyo) or Hongdae (Seoul). The energy is absolutely captivating, and I feel like this is a side of Taipei that not a lot of people who go on tours know. If you like Japanese and Korean style, you might consider staying here! Besides the variety of cool restaurants and hip independent clothing stores, it’s also great place to stay because of the location – it’s right smack in the middle of the city if you look at the Taipei city map!
