Sanxia (三峽) Old Street is a nice stretch of street with old buildings to meander and munch local snack (local version of croissant, interesting with ice-cream). Less touristy compare with other places such as Jiufen (九份). Be adventurous with food because that is what we love about travelling. Great place to do some photo shooting on architecture especially at dust when the lights are turned on.
Tip: find any temple and you will find washroom.
It is best visit after you have done with Yingge (鶯歌). Just hop onto a bus (there is a free shuttle bus on weekends) but we opt for the other buses since those which you have to pay are more frequent. Make sure you ask any bus driver for the destination before you hop on. Plus, local people are very friendly and helpful. Sanxia is just across the river from Yingge. About 5 to 10 minutes bus ride.
The bus stop for bus going to nearest Taipei MRT station is toward the end of the Sanxia Old Street. Do stand across the road from the nearby small temple. Make sure you have the Taipei MRT Map so you are familiar with which MRT line you are at.
