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...more

An old Chinatown area with narrow lanes and old shops. There’s a street market close to the Xiahai city temple and another indoor market replete with food vendors and many Taiwanese sitting eating. Noisy and crowded but very interesting.
This market area is full of historical buildings. For shopping, 永楽市場 is for textiles and many small shops for Chinese medicine, botargo and teas. Very good place for souvenirs taking home. Young artistic people are having their boutique or cafes here. Dihua Street is well...More
我從小陪著父親逛迪化街，只賣早餐的民樂旗魚米粉湯是我的最愛。自從社區開始改造，爲迪化街帶入了活力，新的店家多會善用資源設計產品、烹調食物，新酒食物都各有特色，讓人著迷。請預留足夠的時間慢慢散步，如果需要購物，別忘了帶著可以拖著行走的購物袋。😊My father used to take me to do shopping in Dihua District when I was young. There are all kinds of Taiwanese street foods to eat, especially the breakfast. Even since some new business move it, it is more vital and a lot of new...More
Not the easiest find and a little underwhelming. Lots of traditional Chinese medicine shops interspersed with clothing, handcrafts, jewellery and small cafes. I found the architecture of the buildings more interesting.
Dihua St. commercial district is very famous for a lot of souvenirs shops.
Bitter tea and peppermint tea are both very nice! Fish eggs called KARASUMI are one of most famous souvenir foods.
Why don’t you go around Dihua St. commercial district!
The Dihua walk is something that the locals tour charges but we thought to just do the walk ourselves. It is a very long walk from the station. We go off the Shuanglian market and walk from there. The street is not exactly old town...More
Whilst I don’t think this is one of the top 10 attractions in Taipei, as per my guidebook. It was certainly an interesting street to stroll along. Lots of spices, herbs and dried goods being sold. Many of them completely unrecognisable! During lunchtime mid week...More
quite out the way of most other things so we were a bit underwhelmed when we found the street, and almost didn't notice we were on it. Shops all sell the same things and it's not as scenic as we'd hoped.
Old but not quaint (as in prettified). Lots of shops selling dried fruits, dried foods and some old medicine shops. Could get quite hot and busy at times. Walk further from the main street to get a better feel for the area. Museum 207 was...More
It seems only Dihua Street itself has the action. You can peek into the side streets to see what they have when you are there. Mostly some small eateries. Some were recommended by locals as must-eats, noodles with pork... More
It seems only Dihua Street itself has the action. You can peek into the side streets to see what they have when you are there. Mostly some small eateries. Some were recommended by locals as must-eats, noodles with pork intestine etc but we didn’t eat as we don’t like innards.
One of the must-buys I was told by a local is the “paper pork” from no.311 Dihua Street. It’s an old brand. We bought a carton for Chinese New Year! Mom also Chinese mushrooms, dried longan etc along the street for cooking.
