The area
Neighborhood: Banqiao / Zhonghe / Yonghe District
Banqiao district is the center of administration, shopping and transportation of New Taipei City, encompassing shopping, tasting local snacks, and experiencing traditional and night markets. Here is also the first choice of Christmas celebration in Taiwan- Christmasland in New Taipei City. Within this modern complex, a garden architecture full of Chinese tradition “the Lin Family Mansion and Garden” is hidden, complete with attics, pavilions and artificial mountains and fountains. Zhonghe and Yonghe not only have world class soybean milk, but also have places with a rather artistic lifestyle. Near MRT Yongan Market Station, there is the only old document repair book hospital in Taiwan - the National Taiwan Library Book Hospital bookbinding room. It has been here since Taisho year 4 of the Japanese occupation, which is extremely rare! In addition, the tiny crisscrossing streets of these two cultural districts still holds many interesting bookstores waiting for your discovery.

Eclectic memorial to a Taiwanese “Impressionist”
Dec 2017 • Solo
Beautiful building and gardens, originally the painter’s home and studio, now a small museum lovingly maintained by the artist’s son.

It’s one of the oddest museum displays I’ve seen in a museum, with the paintings sorted by size: largest works on the first floor, getting gradually smaller as one ascends. All the paintings are behind velvet cordons and then framed behind glass, keeping a distinct air of inaccessibility about them.

Yang San Lang was a prolific painter who travelled the world, and the scenes depicted come from all over: from the slopes of Everest to Paris and Venice to rural North America. His brand of adapted Impressionism may or may not be to your taste. The museum is quite specific, and a recommendation only to certain kinds of painting devotees.

An Oasis in Yonghe
Mar 2015 • Couples
I've visited the Yang San Lang Art Museum during each of my two recent visits to Taipei. As its name suggests, it features the work of the important 20th century Taiwanese artist Yang Lan Sang, which has been very intelligently exhibited here. His wife was also an artist. One floor offers comparisons of their renderings of the same scenes, which I find particularly instructive and fascinating.

The grounds comprise a lovely garden and an outdoor eating area, all of which provide a remarkable haven of beauty and peace within bustling Yonghe just outside the walls.

Chris, the proprietor, is an American ex-pat who is also Yang San Lang's grandson. He is a knowledgeable person with interesting things to say on many subjects. He likes to crank up the grill on Sunday. He also hosts other events, such as movie events, from time to time.

Sunday is the main day to visit. It's probably best to call or to check the net to see what's happening before you come. If you're feeling harried, this is a great place to relax.
