If you like ceramics, you'll love this street
Jan 2020
The Yingge area has a long history of ceramics production. Pottery is still made in the area. Take a walk along the street, you are under no pressue to buy. Some of the ceramics are outstanding, some are a little tacky. You're almost sure to find something that interests you. Gettng there is no problem, Yingge is'about half an hour from Taipei on the Taiwan Railways West Coast Line.

If you like ceremics, it is heaven
Feb 2020
It is only a 30-minute train ride from Taipei railroad station. If you like pottery and ceramics, you can easily spend a few hours there. Only some stores take credit cards though, so ask in advance. I would suggest to go around once and make mental notes of what you like or not and try to compare prices (they are about the same). I personally do not like things that a mass-produced (i.e. things that you see in many stores). Rather, I found things that are unique and only available in one or two stores. But that's just me. If I could carry more, i would have bought a lot more stuff. Very happy there.

Nice ceramic shop
Jun 2019
We enjoyed strolling the streets and window shopping. They have lots of cool ceramic wares for sale and knick-knacks. There are some nice souvenirs to purchase. If you have 1/2 day to spare, then I would recommend visiting.

Ceramics Heaven
Jan 2020
I love ceramics so thoroughly enjoyed the place. There is quite the variety to satisfy all tastes. It's actually fun looking at some of the tacky stuff. The best part for me is finding the equivalent of the outlet shop (i.e. discounted) for Lin's Ceramics nearby. There is a proper shop along ceramics street but look for the other one with discounted items.

Potty !
Nov 2019 • Friends
A little out of Taipei by train !we got on the wrong train and had to double back ! But that all added to the fun lol lots to look at but a bit the same same in each shop! The walk from the station to the pottery street is interesting lots of you guessed it pottery shops but they felt more authentic and made by the potter ! We thought it would be a half day adventure but as most shops open after 11am and lots to see it was 4pm by the time we left ! If you like pottery tea pots etc the well worth the trip if you tracking and this is your first stop then carting heavy breakable items around Taiwan may be not the best option so may be at the end of your trip !!

A must visit if you’re in Taipei, even if you’re not into cermaics
Jun 2019 • Friends
So full disclosure, I am super into tea, ceramics and pottery, and I dragged my coworkers here because I wanted to go. However, by the end of our trip they were more excited about this place than they were about any other place we had visited in Taipei. There’s something for everyone here, miniature street markets, shops, teapots, garden decorations, whatever. There’s so many different things to look at and enjoy. I had made converts of both of them.

This is a must visit location for everyone visiting from the states. Highly recommend.

Clay and ceramics central
Jun 2019 • Family
If clay and ceramics are your thing, then this is the place to come for quality goods at reasonable prices. We spotted similar wares from where we came from, but with only a fraction of the cost. The streets twist and turn and branches off so be prepared to spend at least half a day here.

Good for strolling
Jun 2019 • Solo
If you are a collector of ceramics, you should absolutely visit this small town. If not, it is still interesting to have a half day excursion and to stroll these famous streets, where there are many ceramic shops.

Quality and Variety
Apr 2019 • Friends
Quite amazing variety of pottery and other handicrafts in a pleasant pedestrianised environment. Great prices for beautiful pieces. If you are after pottery dont buy anywhere else in Taipei. Couldn't help reflecting on the sad relative decline decline of the ceramics industry in Stoke-on-Trent, UK where I lived recently.
