Sanxia Old Street, New Taipei

3.8
Sanxia Old Street, once an important commercial center, serves as one of the longest old streets in northern Taiwan. The 200-m (656 ft) pedestrian zone features early 20th century Baroque-style buildings, which were restored to their former glory in 2007. Red brick archways adorned with traditional Chinese-style carvings stretch down the street that was once home to numerous merchant houses. Today you can come here to grab a bite to eat, sip on a nice hot cup of traditional tea, or pick up some local handicrafts.

  • Lovely old street with new shops. There are many souvenirs,like horn bread, porcelain wares and others  more »
  • The old street is worth a trip, and the food and the grocery sold are not expensive, chopsticks quality is not wrong, a few shoe store standard Taiwan's shoes are also good, eat food in addition to a lot of Golden Horn shop, most of them are more popular Taiwanese snacks, many choices. There are three clear water ancestors who can go to the shrine.

  • A nice historic place to take a walk and browse the gift shops. The streets are lined with tea shops, handmade wooden gifts, shoes and toy shops. The buildings are historic/restored brick. There’s not an awful lot to do but it’s a nice trip from Taipei for a change. Be sure to try the traditional Bullhorn shape croissants from the bakeries.
  • Nice old street architecture. Things abit commercialised, but locals do come here and shop as well. Try the bull horn pastry, there are a few stalls so just pick your liking. The longest original stall only sells one flavour. There is a stall that makes hand made candy. You can try the stretch candy.
  • One of the most beautiful temples in the country. Various vendors selling food, clothes, and toys on the Old Street. A good half-day trip from Taipei accessible by MRT & bus or TRA & bus.
  • Great place for one-day trip!
  • xu ma ma has tasty fermented tofu.(dofulu)
