44 South Village a relic of yesteryear
Aug 2020
The Xinyi Public Assemble Hall is part of the 44 South Village. The assembly hall is not all that big, it is mainly a venue for selling souvenirs. The village is a relic of the days when mainland soldiers and their families had to make do with this shoddy accommodation. It's worth a walk around.

Assembly Hall is really a museum
Jan 2020
The Assembly Hall is a museum for the Four Four South Village, a former military encampment. It is fascinating to see how primitive the facilities were in the old days when Chiang Kai-shek and his followers first landed in Taiwan from mainland China. There are lots of illustrations and artifacts -- even a picture of the Generalissimo visiting the facility. Chiang never did retake the mainland, so the soldiers and their descendants are still here in Taiwan.

Taipei Then and Now
Oct 2015 • Family
Xinyi Public Assembly Hall, or more favourably known as Si Si Nan Cun (Four-four South Village in Mandarin), is really a cool hidden attraction to supplement Taipei 101. It's conveniently located close enough to the high rise (only 10-15 min walk), but you get to experience a totally different Taipei back in the old days. The complex was built as a weapon factory at the time of Japanese rule, and later converted to soldier housing after the current government relocated to Taiwan following the defeat to communist forces on China. The site is now used as a public/community hall, but hosts sizable permanent exhibitions showing what the old days were like when the military families settled down in Taiwan, and how they have struggled accepting this new homeland while homesicking mainland.

It's also a great place to capture Taipei 101, either alone or with the housing complex to present a combo of both the old and new of Taipei. Definitely a cool place for anyone to visit!

Nice chill out place away from all the shopping.

Established since 1948, This place is quite a chill-out place right smack in the city. It's a small place that used to house some workers for the Taiwanese army if I have not misunderstood. Today, this place is one for art, education, cafe and some occasional markets.

If you are around Taipei 101, it is just a stroll over to this place which in mandarin is also called 四四南村 .

There's an ice cream shop inside the building and I had a kumquat chocolate ice cream which was rather refreshing. Pop over!

Tuck behind Adidas basketball court next to Taipei 101 is a preserved neighborhood that is worth walking by to check it out. Houses in historical architecture.

Nothing was in English but I got the concept of the history it tries to tell but it would have helped to understand it if any signs were in English besides the entrance sign lol

A village in the city!
Mar 2014 • Friends
Another more popular name for this place is called the Four Four South Village or Si Si Nan Cun (四四南村)in Mandarin.
Strangely, it is not covered much here in Tripadvisor. Perhaps its a place for locals?
This quaint village is a preserved military village, one part houses a museum on military village life in Taipei and the public assembly hall. Another part of the village houses a very cool cafe/restaurant that is pretty popular with the locals. There is also a small shop selling local products too.
Its location is just a short 10 mins walk from Taipei 101. Here, you get the perfect picture combining the old and new in Taipei, with Taipei 101 sitting right in the background of this beautiful village.
Check it out!
