For adventurous eaters, this is the premiere spot to buy dried delicacies like longyan fruits, scallops, mushrooms and abalone. Before Chinese New Year is when this street is at its busiest, when Taiwanese flock to the market to stock up for Lunar New Year's feasts.

Walking around in Dihua street gives a other view of Taipei. It's just great to walk here and watch the small stores, working shop owners and public.
