“Slow your pace and enjoy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

A very interesting place to learn about the history, arts and taste the traditional foods of Taiwan, focusing on Yilan foods. Highly recommend their 牛舌饼, 包心粉圆and肉干纸。Enter every street shop to get that significant gift for your love ones, learn about the culture, the story behind some of these gifts (eg the aboriginal culture of Taiwan) and try out the delicious foods from the street stalls to spice up your trip. Finally, end your unforgettable trip with a breezy boat ride from the harbour to nearby 清水公园.

“a flavor of history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

National Center for Traditional Arts is nice and suitable for families to visit.
You can see lots of stuff of folklore, and it's our past. Our grand parents' childhood!
It's really good that there is a place like here to memorize the old stuff
and try to prevent it from disappearing!

“Mix arts and local life~ great fun here..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

It takes 8 years and costs 2.2 billion to build a National Center of Traditional Arts. The National Center of Traditional Arts is located at Dongshan Scenic Area and across the river is the famous Water Park. Simulating to “Museum Menjimura” in Japan, it moved historical houses and gathered them in the center in order to conserve them. Moreover, it also invites traditional folk arts to the center to conserve vanishing folk arts. This is a good sample of blending a traditional culture with a modern one. The Folk Arts Street shopping area is the most popular area among visitors. This is because all buildings in the area are designed as “Ganzaidian”, traditional Taiwanese grocery stores.

“Just like a reconstructed Jiaofen Old Street”

Reconstructed Old Streets that offers food and crafts. This has been used a movie site. Nice, comfortable and saint. Just a little artifical.
