In recent years, the number of retailers in the eastern district of Taipei has continued to decrease, but the traffic volume is still large. This is an important transportation hub and an important route to HSR Nankang Station.


Taipei, Taiwan (Merxwire) – Many retailers in the eastern district of Taipei are no longer open. The Eastern District used to be very prosperous, but now the crowds have almost been reduced by more than half. Some people think that the shop rent is too expensive, and some people think that the retailer’s price is too high and consumers leave. In any case, the traffic flow in the eastern district of Taipei is still very large.

Whether it is a working day or a holiday, the traffic flow in Taipei East District has not decreased, and there are many cars and locomotives. Even if it is cloudy and rainy, you will see motorcycle riders in raincoats moving on here, especially workers who ride motorcycles to help deliver and deliver meals.

The interviewee, Ms. Chen, said, “The traffic flow in the eastern district of Taipei has always been high. This is where Taipei City Hall and HSR Nankang Station are located. Of course, the traffic flow will not be small.” “When residents or office workers in eastern Taipei have long-distance transportation needs. Most of them choose to take a taxi to HSR Nankang Station, so there are many taxis on the road.”

Another interviewee, Mr. Huang, believes that “Although retailers have been declining, there are SOGO Department Stores and Taipei 101 around Taipei East District. These are places that attract people and are one of the reasons why the traffic volume is still large.” “I often come to Taipei East District to go shopping, but the lack of parking spaces is a disadvantage.”

There is also the Huandong Expressway in the eastern district of Taipei, which is a fast road from Neihu, Nangang, Xizhi and other areas to and from the eastern district of Taipei City. It is also a shortcut for Taipei City to enter National Highway No. 3 and National Highway No. 5. The special feature of Taipei East District is that you will often see the towering landmarks of Taipei 101.

Although the number of retailers in the eastern district of Taipei has decreased, the traffic volume is still very large. If you want to visit Taipei 101 or department stores in the east of Taipei, you can choose to take the MRT, so you don’t have to worry about traffic flow and parking spaces. Take the Bannan Line and get off at Zhongxiao Fuxing Station to visit SOGO Department Stores; take the Tamsui-Xinyi Line and get off at Taipei 101 Station to see the landmarks of Taipei!
