Though the shops are limited, the price offered are reasonable and cheap. Not too crowded and huge walkway for customers.

For a true Taiwanese experience Shenkeng street is a must see. Filled with beautiful architecture of a bygone era. Beautiful restaurants and street food with retail therapy this is an enjoyable excursion. Well worth doing when in Taipei

The street is famous for its tofu, and the street is filled with the smell of it. There are wide range of shops along the street and also temples and architectural buildings. It is very relaxing to walk along the street.
