Tips for you
Is a good place to enjoy art&design, high end,luxuries goods.
There were lots of warehouses holding their own individual attraction (e.g. my melody themed, anteater character themed etc). It was cool to just explore these attractions as they were housed in old warehouses. Songshan cultural park also features a cool multicoloured TAIPEI sign which is a nice photo spot! There were also a couple of museums in the park, however, since we had arrived after 5:30/6pm, many of them were already closed. There was also a mall that sold a variety of jewellery, clothing, shoes etc from independent designers.
plenty of things to do here, if you're not rushed. there are the seasonal exhibitions in the warehouses - interest level varies depending on what's showing, obviously. there's the old tobacco factory (now housing little design office spaces) with its beautiful industrial concrete walls and wooden window frames. great place to take photographs and there's a quiet little cafe in there somewhere too. and then there's an eslite store (AND HOTEL) which is always a winner. seriously. you're in taiwan to take it easy. spend a couple of hours in this place just wandering around
