Sanhsia Old Street, Xinbei

(3.9/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • 牛角好吃,外帶也好吃,外帶隔兩天吃一樣好吃,不知道是選對家好吃,還是每一家都好吃,只能您自己去吃吃,有一攤豬血糕也好吃,逛逛真不錯  more »
  • 經常來三峽老街走走,特別是春夏的時候,假日人潮很多,偶爾平常休假來走走,反而更能感受老街的風情,唯一的缺點是假日停車不易,或是需要停較遠。  more »
  • 古色古香的建築配上傳統又有現代的店家,很棒的平日觀光景點。假日人潮很多,相對店家更多。喜歡小吃可以假日來;想欣賞老街的傳統特色平日就可以,很悠閒,很愜意,很美⋯⋯  more »

  • 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.
  • One of the most beautiful temples in the country. Various vendors selling food, clothes, and toys on the Old Street. A good half-day trip from Taipei accessible by MRT + bus or TRA + bus.
  • Cute little place just wish i had longer there to explore. Magnificent temple the detail in the building is amazing.
  • A one of good place for sightseeing. Many gift shop and snack shop in here.
