Reminder of times past
Aug 2021
Bopiliao Ancient Street dates from the first days of Chinese settlement in Taiwan. The architecture is quite beautiful, it reflects the prosperity of this area of Taipei, in days gone by. The charming Bopiliao Ancient Street is not far from the pictursque Lungshan Temple, Taipei's most visited temple. By thw way, don't leave your visit to Bopiliao Ancient to late or all you may find is closed doors.

This street is completely different then any other one in Taipei
Feb 2020
I found the Bopiliao Street to be very interesting, mainly because the brick buildings are so much different then any other buildings in Taipei. The street is not far from the Longshan Temple and a few of the night markets, so it is worth a stop. I came here later in the evening, and there was not a whole lot going on. A few exhibits were open displaying art and the history of the area. The cobble stone streets and narrow paths reminded me a lot of European cities. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to come here, but if you are nearby then it is definitely worth a stop.

Old and charming
Jan 2020
We went there after visiting Long Shan Temple, we just walked around and looking.. at outside since it was closed. The ancient street is one of the oldest preserved heritage sites in Taipei, the architectural is pretty good for photo-taking. The brick walls and wooden doors look so beautiful under the sun. It only took us 15 minutes to see it from outside.

Turning back time

One can imagine turning back time to the old days when you look at the buildings. Unfortunately, it is a very short stretch of buildings so don't expect too much.

A Stroll Into the Past
Oct 2019
This isn't a complete review, since we went there on Monday when the front side was closed. It's a little confusing because it has two sides: one fronting on Guangzhou Street, the other a walking street unto itself. The Guangzhou street side is mostly notable for the old brick construction, with some signs explaining the history of the spot where you are standing. It is an authentic historical street, related to the coal trade, dating back to the Qing Dynasty, but also including the Japanese colonial period, with preserved places, including a schoolroom, and a museum--and it's free. Another plus is its location: it's a short walk to the Longshan Temple and the Guangzhou Street Night Market.

We came here 2 years ago and thought it was ok... nothing has changed. We stumbled upon it again and thought the same.

Interesting enough if you are in the area
Oct 2019
We enjoyed some time wandering around the streets near the temple. and this had some good information, and some different architecture for the area. We also enjoyed the herbalist stalls in the nearby streets.
I wouldn't come here just for this.

Informative exhibits
Oct 2019 • Couples
Bopiliao Old Street is an easy walk from the Longshan Temple MRT station. We spent a leisurely two hours strolling among the buildings and viewing the exhibits which were well done and interesting. Perhaps more explanations in English could have been given though. Although the street opens at 9 am, the exhibits in the airconditioned rooms only open around 11 am.

Interesting place
Aug 2019
Once you find the street, ensure you go through one of the buildings to the small street between the brick buildings. Very scenic, a few interesting things in some of the buildings.
