Sanxia Old Street, Xinbei
(3.7/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Sanxia Old Street, once an important commercial center, serves as one of the longest old streets in northern Taiwan. The 200-m (656 ft) pedestrian zone features early 20th century Baroque-style buildings, which were restored to their former glory in 2007. Red brick archways adorned with traditional Chinese-style carvings stretch down the street that was once home to numerous merchant houses. Today you can come here to grab a bite to eat, sip on a nice hot cup of traditional tea, or pick up some local handicrafts.

  • 在台灣老街當中,三峽老街算是很好逛、具特色的,從精緻的三峽祖師廟開始,除了古玩店、童玩演出、手工藝品、各類傳統小吃外,還有獨一無二的金牛角,是假日出遊的好選擇。 
  • 國外的朋友們,如果你來台灣玩,可以到便利店買這碗《肉羹麵》來吃,一碗臺幣才23元,便利店都有提供熱水給你泡麵吃,這碗在台灣陪伴我長大的,半夜肚子餓的時候,最佳良伴,永吃不膩,在我心中算是台灣名產之一。但是如果你是第一次嘗試,千萬一定要問一下店員如何泡麵,不然會後悔 
  • Very far from the Taipei centre by bus 702, 705 or 812. Only visit if you wish to see the nearby Zushi Temple since this is a shopping street as any other. It takes at least half a day to get there an...  more »

  • Nice old street with interesting stores selling traditional food and many stuffs.
  • Average old street, some food is good but trafic is always chaotic on the weekends, very hard to find a parking spot.
  • Nice for family and friends, foodie and interesting with ancient design
  • Lovely a lot of food
  • A little boring, the specialist is the temple there.
