After lunch at Wasabi in Taipei 101 we walked around the area filled with shopping malls. From Taipei 101 we crossed a walkway that connected to New York New York mall which housed Muji and
Daiso, our favorite Japanese stores. This is just one of the many malls in the Xinyi district which is a very beautiful upscale shopping area in the heart of Taipei..
We walked pass by Viewshow cinemas which housed 17 movie screens and several dining options.
We did a little shopping at Shin Kong Mitsukoshi an upscale Japanese department store chain. It was quite confusing since the store was split into 4 buildings called A4, A8, A9 and A11 which housed the ladies, mens, houseware in separate buildings. Beautiful but confusing.
I don’t know what this building is but it reminded me of New York city.
Shin Kong Mitsukoshi
I loved the mini park in the middle of the steel jungle.
We had a little snack at Mr. Brown coffee, a very popular coffee chain in Taiwan, located inside Mitsukoshi.
Both desserts were very good but I can’t say the same for the weak, bland coffee.
We didn’t have time to visit Eslite bookstore which spanned 7 floors and was open for 24 hours. We wanted to come back to this area for a more shopping but we didn’t have enough time. It was really a great place to shop if you’re in Taipei.
