  • Great place to visit. When there, the "100 year old oily rice" is a must try. Also do visit the Daxi birdge about 15 mins walk downhill.
  • Interesting and beautiful place to see old mix culture building. The Da Xi Bridge is amazing at night with the different color of light shining at it.
  • The structure of Daxi Old Street is amazing, it's all well preserved and organized. Unlike many old street in Taiwan, Daxi old street owns different kinds of foods and store. From coffee shop, handmade dessert, traditional local cuisines to handicrafts shops, you will definitely have a good time here.
  • Nice old street with a lot of small shops that sell anything and it's possible to bargain!
  • Not a lot of things happening when we visited on a weekday during daytime, however, you can tell that they do try to make it a tourist site and have some facilities to preserve the historic assets.
