What travelers say:

·The Red House in Ximending, Taipei City, with crosses and gossip as the shape, is an important memory of many old Taipeiers. It has witnessed the rise and fall of Ximending, experienced the early Japanese occupation period to the recent period of multiple styles, and experienced the prosperity and rise and fall of the entire Ximen business district. Now it has become a brand-new cultural center. In addition to performances, it has stationed in many resident cultural and creative stores, and it is very popular among young artists. There are Riverside Message Exhibition Hall, Moonlight Cinema and various small halls inside, which can be called the "sacred place for culture and youth". It is another enjoyment to sit here at night and enjoy the century-old red building under the night.
