  • Look to the Ximen MRT station (exit 1) left. Age of the Taiwan rule by Japan, juro Kondo design. A typical Tatsuno style of architecture. It was completed in 1908. In 1997, designated no. 3 grade ruins (the ruins of the city). Landmark in Taipei.

  • A historical building had renovates into small independent shops inside. A very small but adorable place. 16 workshops selling their own products which quality are all great. You can get some unique items though they are somewhat expensive.
  • I might have missed it but I don't think there was enough information displayed on the history and significance of this place. Nonetheless it's a good place to go to for some unique items - we were particularly intrigued by the skincare products from 陈爸 (the first shop at the entrance). And he's quite a character!
  • A historical build restored and repurposed for displaying and selling local art and crafts. And by night it is surrounded by a bunch of nice restaurants and bars. Very cool place to visit in Taipei.
  • This is a great outdoor environment to enjoy drinks with friends. Although the places are dominated by a certain community, you won’t be bothered a tiny, everyone minds their own businesses. Enjoy..
  • Super trendy arts and crafts. Music venues out one side, LGBT areas out the other. Lots of unique artisans.
