Even bags buy is different than other packaging shops, often seen in other colors, such as found. Bamboo basket products available including cheap, looks good for a souvenir.

    This is a must go once when I went to buy fabric in the Yongle market in Taipei City. Streets lined with beautiful baroque buildings in the retro you want to take photos. There are plenty of more fashionable goods, such as mark karaku shops lined with old fashioned dry, herbal medicine shops, cafés and shops, and you want to go.

    This is where Taipei city started the development, lots of historical buildings are still well preserved. The atmosphere on this street and surrounding neighborhood bring back the early 1900s .

    Another old street in Taipei!!! So many very local (and traditional) food like dried snacks and cookies. Maybe not for everyone but still interesting to see.

    An old street which came to life few weeks to Chinese New Year. The locals will come here to replanish the goods for the festive season.

    One of the oldest areas in Taipei is now a mix of the old and the new. The government has started an initiative to create art spaces. There are plenty of hidden shops in each alley. Perfect for an afternoon stroll. During the Chinese New Year holidays, the street transforms into a huge markeg selling traditional snacks, candies, and gifts. Be ready to hustle your way through jostling crowds. Highly recommend you check it out!
