Sanhsia Old Street, Xinbei
(3.7/5 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.

  • So so convenient than cars + bus seems to have many different directions from the MRT Tucheng station went by bus. Tucheng station No.2 exit, there is a bus stop 20 meters left behind. 706 system bus ride from there, so it takes about 30 minutes. Bus is 15 minutes in place, out of the gate's Tucheng station on the ceiling of the exit direction after minutes in what system bus or billboard display, convenient. Velcro display Board at the bus stop. It's 3 gorges old city bus down. From there walk to Kiyomizu Temple tirthankar 10 minutes. From soshigaya mausoleum SideArm a little behind and continues to old town. Followed by the old brick building. Yingge town than the orderly. The building is almost everything is souvenir and food shops. Just by walking around and very fun. Cure-alls that beautiful feeling of a first-hand. Please please please try it. Buses a lot is coming from other MRT stations.

  • Quaint red-brick streets. Cow corner bakery and gift shop. Anything in particular but there it is. I think it is not a tourist destination into the schedule and went on tour, but not.

  • 三峽老街假日人爆多很難停車,不過,美食也很多,我強烈推薦,一定要在現場吃熱騰騰的牛香軒黃金牛角麵包,內餡多又酥脆真的很好吃喔!
