North Gate, Taipei

3.4
Check out North Gate, the remaining part of the once-planned city walls of Taipei. Originating from the Qing dynasty, the wall had five gates, but only the north one still stands to this day in its original form. The picturesque structure--made from stone, with red-painted external walls--stands out from its modern surroundings, creating a great photo opportunity. A visit to North Gate represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Taipei trip maker tool to plot your vacation.

  • Simple gate near the river. There isn’t much around here & it seems quite bare so I wouldn’t come here especially  more »
  • Take a look at it had five gates to Taipei, but its five-star on the map, and how small Taipei, well you know. Although the heritage left by the renovation of the Taipei train station the road gate is, on the contrary, disappeared around but nothing is feeling lonely. It is near the Metro station.

  • Also known as North Gate. Many years ago I climbed up into the tower. Cannot do that now. They have done this old gate up very nicely and have set up nice explanations about the 'Old City". They even explain why it does not actually face true north. Found the explanation quite interesting.
  • The only gate of the ancient Taipei City is preserved as it was till now with modest restoration. The Cheng-En Gate was established in 1884. Several government-styled buildings built around the beginning of 20th century are located nearby. The very famous "Camera Street" can also be found just around the gate. lt is possible to buy almost every kind of digital cameras there.
  • Real historical site. Sometimes combined with modern events. Cool.
  • local told us the story. i forgot. read down there. the structure was magnificent. be there to feel.
  • I love the history of this gate. Sad I couldn't walk thru it today. I'll be back!
