Recently CNNGo has dubbed Taipei, Taiwan as one of Asia's most sinful cities for indulging gluttony. I'd say it's probably because the city is a "street food mecca" where inexpensive and delectable food is available around the clock.

Nail salons are famous here. They have all these cute nail designs.

Most often you will see cute pets on the street.

Hello Kitty is everyone's favorite feline here and is found in a wide variety of consumer products.

Pretty little things.

The Taiwanese 7-Eleven convenience store is literally everywhere. If I'm not mistaken, in Ximending alone there are seven branches.

Numerous night markets are so bustling with all of the touristy craziness.

Ximending is known for a variety of lively entertainments and activities especially at night.
