  • Big choice of traditional Chinese medicine and spices. Also cool to just walk and enjoy the exotic smells.
  • Snacks, tea, art, for culture, Chinese herbs, nice coffee shops. I always love to come here for shopping and sightseeing.

  • A classic and historic hotspot area in Taipei City, Taiwan.
