  • Afternoon spent in the old streets of Beipu in back of Lion's Head Mountain. How to go there? Zhubei/HSR of Hsinchu station, take the bus to Shijoushan (Lion's Head Mountain, the platform take the HSR station otherwise 6a Zhubei station exit down the escalators). Small town very approachable and really sweet. We walk in the market of the after noon and miles small flat sales/sugars, fruits, dried fruits make me want to be tasted. Everything is fresh, beautiful, and the people are incredibly friendly and helpful. Behind the market stalls, one enters ' sees the old shops, tea shops that are still witnesses to the old town. Magical ride to me. I advise sample preparation of the Hakka (green drink a base of green tea, peanuts and sesame) on-site, and why not to try to prepare (after 100-150 NTD/pers for the activity). It is proposed in several places of the city, and seems to be a moment appreciated by all small like people more elderly. Note that in the streets of Beipu we feel the only European. Thank you for this warm place, these flavours and smells.

  • 充滿各式客家小吃,菜,和客家擋茶,北埔在小街内有很多家很有古味的客家擋茶的店,北埔内也有几幢清朝時的老房子,北埔老街基本就是一亇夜市食街,但週末值得一逛,但也是人山人海,甚至有南部遊覽車來到! 
  • 最近去了但是覺得已經沒有以前棒了 失去老街該有的味道 有種落寞的感覺 會去也是去買一口菜包吃而已 就會想離開了 如果多點特色會更好
