Sanhsia Old Street, Xinbei

3.9
#12 of 90 in Sightseeing in Xinbei
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Starting at Yonging mrt stop on the blue line take bus 916 and it drops off at the sanxia old street. Another possible but longer ride is Ximen mrt bus 706 also dropping at the sanxia old streert. Walk down the street with the family mart about 5 or 10 minutes. On that road there are some delicious food stops my favorite is pictured they havea beef pancake roll up, hot and sour soup, and dumplings that are unparalleled and homemade. This area/street also has a huge bustling morning market similar to a farmers market. Sanxia old street is know for many things but I mostly love trying all the local treats so be sure to try the bull horn bread! Theres lots of flavors try getting one from each place to see what your favorite is!!!
  • A simple place to walk around. There are a few shop houses selling food and souvenirs
  • It's very well maintained , and some shops will allow you to walk all the way in.
  • Beautiful street with interesting architecture. Plenty of little shops and vendors. Touristy, but not too expensive. Bring your camera and take a few hours to explore on a nice day.
  • Beautiful old street with many good food. Together with YingGe it can be a wholesome 1 day trip. A must buy for both locals and foreigners are the taiwanese croissant! (牛角)they also sell the famous shenkeng stinky tofu there.

Where to stay in Xinbei

Far more accommodations lie in adjacent Taipei than in Xinbei. That said, if you're keen to stay in Xinbei, you won't have any problems finding a place to sleep. Banqiao district offers the largest collection of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels in the new city, particularly around Fuzhong station. A similar variety, but greater number, of accommodations can be found in Taipei's central district, with a vast array of hotels great and small, guesthouses, hostels, and boutiques available to the east of the Tamsui River.
