In early years, the main business activity in Ximenting (Ximending) was the cinema theater. At that time, most cinema theaters are on the Emei Street, Chengdu Road and Xining S. Road. After the central government of R.O.C. was reinstated in Taiwan in 1949, a large fund was poured into Ximenting (Ximending). Other than cinema theaters, there were department stores and other entertainment attractions. After the completion of Zhonghua Business Buildings, Ximenting (Ximending) became the largest business and entertainment center in the country.

In 1990s, the business and entertainment activities of Taipei gradually shifted to the East District. Later, Zhonghua Business Buildings were torn down for the road construction. Ximenting (Ximending) became less popular for a while. Then, MRT Bannan Line was completed. Zhonghua Road since then has been converted to be a prosperous main street under the planning of Taipei City Government. Furthermore, there are many emerging squares and activity locations. People gather here for art, culture events or sports, music performances during weekends or holidays. The business opportunities and people are coming back to Ximenting (Ximending).

The Sanduo area has gained its popularity as a top shopping destination in Kaohsiung in the recent years. Anchor stores here include the Shin Kong (Xinguang) Mitsukoshi Department Store, SOGO, and Mega'21 Far Eastern Shopping Complex. There are also a number of clothing boutiques and small shops, including Japanese merchandise retailers Poya and A+1, and other shops selling discount cosmetics, handbags, and daily goods. Items at these shops are generally 20% to 50% cheaper than similar items at department store boutiques, making them a magnet for young shoppers. Sanduo has also benefited from its proximity to the traditional market on Linsen Road.

Sanduo Shopping District is adjacent to the Sanduo and Zhongshan Road traffic circles near the high-rise core in Kaohsiung. To the south it links with the Asia-Pacific Financial Plaza, the 85-floor Tuntex Sky Tower, and a multifunctional economic and trade area being promoted by the Kaohsiung City Government. An MRT station will soon open in this area making it even easier to reach.
