  • I go there every year, but every time I go, a new shop opens. There are stylish cafes and general stores in the old-fashioned dry goods shop, so you won't get bored.

  • I liked the red brick building and the retro townscape. It is a place that cannot be removed in Taipei because there is a dry goods shop, a tea shop, a souvenir, sweets, a stylish cafes, and anything.

  • 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.
