Zhongshan District

Landmarks · Gift & Specialty Shops · Scenic Walking Areas
Zhongshan District is an administrative district of Taipei City, named after Sun Yat-sen, better known in Chinese as "Sun Zhongshan".EconomyIn the 1970s, the district was recognised as the centre of the city's tourist industry with large hotels and international restaurants. The interest from tourists allowed the district to develop as a centre of international business.In recent decades, the district's economy and its population have both contracted, due in part to the decentralisation of industrial and manufacturing activities. Parts of Taipei's "financial core" (that once centred on the Zhongshan District) have been moved to other districts.Between 1991 and 1996, the district lost 2,600 jobs while the rest of Taipei experienced increased jobs growth (120,000 jobs in the same period). Between 1991 and 1999, the district's population decreased by more than 21,000, accounting for 27.6% of Taipei's total population decrease during that period. According to some economists, the decrease in population and jobs allowed an informal sex industry to thrive in the district leading to an increased crime rate.Tatung Company and Uni Air have their headquarters in the district.RecreationThe district features many recreational areas which include Rongxing Garden Park, Xinsheng Park, Yingfeng Riverside Park, Meiti Riverside Park, Zhongshan Fine Arts Park, Dajia Riverside Park and Taipei Municipal Children's Recreation Area.
