Sanhsia Old Street, Xinbei
(3.8/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
With striking architecture distinct from the rest of the island, Sanhsia Old Street allows visitors to soak up a truly Taiwanese atmosphere, through sampling food and window-shopping. Historically the area was an important center for the distribution of goods in northern Taiwan, with many shops selling dyes and teas. Most of the buildings here were built during the Japanese occupation of the early 20th century, and the preserved shops and temples make for interesting architectural sightseeing. Look out for the street's famous cow-horn croissants and candy-makers. Plan your visit to Sanhsia Old Street and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Xinbei vacation route planner.

  • 1. 欣賞祖師廟的古蹟建築; 2. 老街有許多的特色小吃, 古玩, 尤其當地著名的黃金牛角麵包; 3. 鄰近的國立台北大學校園也是適合散步健身運動; 
  • 三峽老街一點也不長,短短一條,但保存的十分完好,可以慢慢散步其中,感受那古老的氣氛,但兩旁的店家感覺就普通,賣的東西大同小異,有名的金牛角其實還好,只是比較有咬勁、濃郁的麵包罷了,另外雖然這裡依照時段是禁行車輛,依舊不時有機車呼嘯而過,這就是台灣風範,在逛街時請注意安全。 
  • 以三峽祖師廟為起點的老街,假日總有人會在入口的橋上表演打陀螺等民俗技藝,讓小朋友看了感到新奇。金牛角是必買的名產,尤其剛出爐時,香酥的口感,搭配茶飲,吃起來很讓人感到滿足。
