Taiwan Travel: The Red House, Ximending

I and my friends usually just go directly into the middle of Ximending after exiting from Exit 6 of Ximen MRT Station. But this time, we decided to look at the other side of Ximen, to be exact, the other side of the exit 6. =P

If you don't know which side to go, it's the side where the police station is located.

And our location for the day is the Red House (西門紅樓), which is located just beside the police station.

The Red House is one of the cultural place preserved by Taipei Government. Now it also serves as an independent tea house, featuring exhibitions of those old-school decoration and tools in the dining area for a tea-tasting experience.
