Introducing to all a less tourist visited shopping center in Taipei. Miramar Entertainment Park or also known as Miramar Shopping Center is often one of the favourite locations for filming the taiwanese idol dramas. Coming here is easy as a breeze as there is a subway situated on the road across. So other than the places usually filled by tourist also included in my Taipei 11D10N itinerary, I decided to give this place a visit.
Yes! This is the ferris wheel where 吴尊 and his daughter Neinei sat with 辰亦儒 in 爸爸回来了, the chinese version of 슈퍼맨이 돌아왔다 – a hot variety programme that features some Korea’s celebrity and their children.

The ferris wheel is located on the 5F. The best time to come is during evening, where you can catch the view of Zhongshan Jingye area in Neihu in nice cool temperature. Basically no one else will take the ferris wheel in the mornings or afternoons because of the scorching hot weather so one way you can avoid the queue if you do not mind the sun at all. You can spot the Taipei 101 building lights afar from here as well.
Shopping here on a weekday is quite comfortable as there’s not much crowd compared to the central Taipei Station areas or Ximending. One great facility in Miramar is the addition of chairs for public almost anywhere inside the shopping center.
Spotted one of my favourite graphic tee brand in Miramar!
Take a break after a shopping madness and you can head for lunch at TGIFridays.
Look at how cool this bike is as a mascot of TGIFridays restaurant. Super eye-catching you won’t miss finding the restaurant!
I recommend catching the latest movie at the super comfortable and big cinema in Miramar after lunch before heading off to your next destination.
To reach here, take the subway to Jiannan Rd. Station and cross the traffic light towards the ferris wheel. (approx. 2 minutes walk)
