Old Lugang with its winding narrow lanes, little shops, little eateries and the many small shrines. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and it was so crowded, but it was still nice. Photography is possible!

We took a day trip to Lukang when we were staying in Taichung. Arranged for taxi transport thru Tripool Taxi ($23 USD one way, 40-minute ride) that was very easy and convenient (even for us English-only speakers). Even in the bustling streets, we easily saw...More

Lugang Old Street, or Lao Jie, is certainly the most popular destination of tourists beside Tianhou Gong temple. There are many shops, which are not necessarily souvenir shops, on the both sides of this narrow path. As I went in the morning, there were few...More

The old streets have nicely preserved houses - now offering all sorts of (touristy) items. It is a very popular area with locals strolling, nibbling and taking photographs. Well worth a visit.

Walking this old street is very interesting. You can tell that this place is very old because of the types of shops and how the streets are made from bricks. The small shops seem to be dedicated to tourists as I did not see very...More

If you want the best experience in Lukang, then I recommend you go on the weekend (Saturday especially) late morning through about 4pm. Shops will begin to close then. Lukang is one of the few places in Taiwan that closes up... More

There is not much choice in Lugang, the nearest town to stay would be Taichung or ChangHua. Both are around 30min by taxi to Lugang. Lugang is mostly closed in the evening, it is good for a day trip only.
