  • You can buy China bamboo and tea at one-third of the folk art shops that are taken to travel agencies. The streets are as if they were just walking in brick. It was wonderful. You can enjoy just looking at chinese medicine!

  • The best place to travel to Taipei is The City of Yihua. It was a city that blended the old streets with the modern ness. You can buy it cheaply when I purchase it here. There is also a shop that appeared in the gourmet of solitude, i was able to enjoy.

  • Gorgeous courtyards between many buildings on this historic street. Everything has a cinematic quality to it and most have been so well- preserved. In my opinion, this oldest street of Taipei is a must visit spot. It was a very long street and we decided to have a rest in one of its many cafes. Though coffee/tea prices were on the higher side but for such romantic spots it was well worth it. We managed to find a cafe that has courtyard seating.. hmm..'In the mood for love' anyone?
  • A gorgeous street with lots of medical stores! There’s really lots of amazing goodies to be found in this area. I recommend those who are looking for medical stuff, cafes, food to come here. There’s a visitor center that can recommend how to walk around this place and the history.
