  • Just noises, so watching is fun. And didn't you people loudly. Buy the dude was like a sponge, has a large and varied types, said that milk is recommended, best-before date is three days and put in the refrigerator, put in the fridge in the hotel. Among the ones I bought in Taiwan the most delicious.

  • As a wholesale district crowded with old cure-alls. Is famous as a place to buy dried mullet roe, such as in recent years, retro buildings intact in fashionable grocery stores, cafés and shops open. Especially obsessed with MIT (made in Taiwan) Taiwan sundries "feel to shop as often, is even more attractive. Convenient access by bus can use also the easycard is kinda small but far from MRT station.

  • 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.
  • Great old building street and there's a 150years old house with weekend free guided tour. Worth a visit
  • 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!
