Sanxia Old Street, Xinbei

(3.7/5 based on 50+ 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.

  • Because the luggage had from Taoyuan airport in a bus with NWFB bus stop the first one "favor primary public medical Academy" at the walked from there. I thought that the red-brick streets are very nice and in Taipei city came all the way to the tourist. Featured area is city of ceramics "Nightingale song" staying on the bus.

  • 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
