  • 保有原來建築加上內部翻新,整個令人耳目一新,價位是有些偏高,可能比較適合觀光遊客,整體的古色古香讓人不禁會回想起那個年代,樸實又熱情的日常生活  more »
  • Unfortunately when I visited the 11/2016 were still under construction. Five menstruation because now finished construction of I-with the post with thoughts. In construction, the large piece of cloth? I covered one part of the construction of the Red Tower to print large scale equivalent to the correct location. Thanks to Morrow is the whole atmosphere. Looking much better cover was so touched that I couldn't try to. That would be trying to emphasize safety and Japan's so covered with bland wall.

  • This building is still under renovation. But there are many pubs and bar beside it is still busking with noisy activity and is very vibrant with young people gathering there with friends for drinks.  more »

  • Used to be the first public market back in Japanese colonization, now the ground floor held some small exhibition and tells a little history of the building. Also there's a CREATIVE INDUSTRY FAIR beside it during the weekend. Not it still holds some events, or even have party around it during Halloween. "TourMeAway" has a free walking tour taking you here, join them if you want to learn more.
  • Next to ximen. Enjoy some hand craft stall in morning and decent bar at night
  • Cheap drinks. Decent fried food platters. Enjoyable every day of the week
  • Fun place. Lots of people. Lots of stuff to do and eat.
  • A historical site for culture. Yet avoid for drinks and meals if possible.
