With the arrival of Xiongxiong to Taiwan, Taipei Trends will be covering the bear and his entourage as we make the “Friendly” walk from Taipei 101 to Ximending. Follow us as the lovable and focused polar bear meets new people and makes new friends along the way. There will be lots of activities, fun, and friendly fellow walkers all in on the action.
