  • 已經存在很久的迪化街,過年前尤其熱鬧,每年幾乎都會跑一趟,去感受一下過年的氣氛,不過東西其實賣的不便宜,最近有經過整理,增加不少文創要素,不過老實講,文創就是那種調調,台北市裡到處都在搞文創,看多了也覺得挺膩的。

  • 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.
  • Very interesting place to buy some Chinese medicine, dried snacks (I love dried okra!) and textiles. Specific atmosphere and a lot of hidden interesting shops.
  • Good Taiwanese transitional area with reserved architecture and culture. You can learn a lot here
  • A classic and historic hotspot area in Taipei City, Taiwan.
