Sanhsia Old Street, Xinbei

3.9
#19 of 193 in Things to do in Xinbei
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.

    From the Nightingale song galbi went by taxi. Brick store, located on both sides of the road, nice retro atmosphere. Landscape of the city more compact feeling like one is not so wide.

    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!!!

    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.
