  • Inside the old streets of inner Taiwan, there is a stalls trafficking, a pair of elderly couples selling, a north use of the scale is hand scale, very special, pulling is very sweet and soft and very fragrant, pull the stalls next door of the roast sausage is also necessary to buy, that day when the couple bought 3000 pieces of raw sausage! The old street in Inner Bay is so big that it can eat delicious food every time.

  • Very nice place. Many shops selling toys, foods, games and accessories. Friendly staffs and many "testing" products. Has history and good scenery.
  • Lots of traditional Hakka cuisine such as Tofu Cheese, Peanut Mochi, Soaked Pickles, and more! I also love the black sugar cakes. Affordable and local!
  • Walk all the way to the southern end of Zhongzheng Road to catch the view on the Neiwan Bridge.
  • An old town that is a great place for food and shopping. The village has been transformed into a shopping area with many Taiwanese food and drinks try.
  • Touristic Spot - A bit like a night market, with lots of shops offering local souvenirs and packaged foods, as well as your typical street foods. Well preserved and not a bad place to bring the family on the weekend. Get there early (before noon) or else it gets crowded.
