The area
Address
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.

A lovely small train station
Nov 2020
An 117 years old small train station, has been approved as a City Heritage site.
“Shanjia” derived from the Taiwanese “Sua-ka (山仔腳/ 山腳下)”, which means "the foot of hill".

In 2011, a new station was built alongside. Then the old one was refurbished just for exhibition. Admission free to everyone.

It is a Western-Japanese eclectic architecture with a coarse grindstone exterior (built in Japanese colonial period). So surprised to find that the building has elegant Tuscan columns.
