DanaXimending is by the the biggest and busiest shopping district I have been into. It has everything, from clothing stores, to Buddhist shrines, to cool restaurants. When I was there, I was able to buy a couple of clothes because their clothing prices were quite reasonable. I also had my dinner in the famed Toilet Restaurant. I ordered a lot including the huge toilet bowl of Pork Soup set, a dessert, and the an iced tea, and my total bill was only NTD490.
