If you have been to other "old street" in this part of Taiwan, it's not hard to notice the similarity in the design and layout of the such attraction. As what I was told, most of these old street traced their beginning during their Japanese rule that eventually see such replication taking place.

Another one of the many old streets of Taipei. Lots of shops selling everything under the sun. Go with empty stomach as there are lots and lots of eateries selling all types of Taiwanese food. This is the place mostly patronized by the locals. Thus the prices of goods and food are real cheap. The market at the end of... More

My friends and I had just arrived from the airport and were on our way to the Great Roots Forestry Resort & Spa, and had decided to break journey here, after a quick trip to the Yingge Ceramics Museum. It was turning dark, and the streets were lit up. It was very pretty, and a nice easy stroll on both... More

Charming, quaint street, with shops in a renovated block of very old shop fronts. One of the traditional snacks here is a pastry in the shape of a bulls horn, more like a croissant. Shops have a sign hanging in shapes of what they specialize in. Tea shops, clothes shops, antique shops and the typical tourist junk souvenirs.

We went thinking we would see a lot of cool things... it was fun but there were shops selling trinkets and food vendors. The buildings were cool to see but I wouldn't go out of my way just to see this attraction. Although I have heard that at dusk the lighting is pretty amazing. I might have to go back... More

Have to walk quite a distance (20 minutes) from the bus stop. So better take a cab. Nothing much except for the 200m street with ancient bulidings on both sides.Aall have been converted into shops selling food/souvenirs. Shops close around 6-7 pm.

As stated in the title, we liked this street for its diverse offering in a more quiet subtle way. No crowds and no sellers yelling to sell their products... F&B shops here seemed to be more generous in giving you samples, which we were happy to before making our many purchases. Good food, no rush, old architecture still intact and... More

Ask your hotel (or just grab a cab and ask them) and they'll help you get to the nearest night market! Food, carnival games, lots of clothes, shoes (for little feet), cell phone knick knacks, and jewelry.
