  • 比起台北的松山文創園區,駁二的商業化明顯淡了許多。 圓區內有許多有趣的裝置藝術... 手作品攤位可觀覽許多可愛的小物... 服務中心也有有趣的裝置藝術... 在還未更商業化前,趕緊去看看....  more »
  • I went to the front of the hotel. China holidays the buses were coming every day. It seems like a very small Yamashita Park in Yokohama. There were flea market. Close to the tourist factories.

  • Cheese factory converted "design" stores. The government need to up it's policy to encourage real art and design activity. Not renting it to renters who pays the most rent, such as fake italian food.
  • Very relaxing place where you can see lots of art installation. Also a very good place to get some unique souvenir.
  • A very nice public space to visit and walk around with a historic feel. An old warehouse became an open space with arts and crafts.
  • Now that the godowns are used for a different purpose, it is an interesting visit for anyone wanting to learn a little of the past history and to enjoy the quaint atmosphere and environment.
  • Absolute must. Relaxing and lots of art. Good for jogging as well
