Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I came across this attraction while walking towards the Longshan Temple. It is a neighborhood or alleys where artisans, craftsmen and business people used to live and conduct business. Renovated buildings are now used as galleries, small museums, etc.

I enjoyed my visit here. My favorite is the room where reccorded voices of the locals can be heard.

Note that there are benches for visitors to sit down here as well as toilet facilities. Located near it is a small public market selling fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, cooked foods, clothings, etc.

The historic street in Wanhua area of Taipei was one of the earliest commercial districts in the city. There’s lots of red brick style buildings. Nowadays, it's a cultural hub with art exhibitions and museums. There’s also boutique and designer shops with some very trendy clothes and items for sale.

It was a friend of mine who brought me here as it is a must visit place if you love to see ancient streets. It's well preserved and there is no entrance fee plus you'll learn some history.

Bopiliao Ancient Street dates from the first days of Chinese settlement in Taiwan. The architecture is quite beautiful, it reflects the prosperity of this area of Taipei, in days gone by. The charming Bopiliao Ancient Street is not far from the pictursque Lungshan Temple, Taipei's most visited temple. By thw way, don't leave your visit to Bopiliao Ancient to late or all you may find is closed doors.

I found the Bopiliao Street to be very interesting, mainly because the brick buildings are so much different then any other buildings in Taipei. The street is not far from the Longshan Temple and a few of the night markets, so it is worth a stop. I came here later in the evening, and there was not a whole lot going on. A few exhibits were open displaying art and the history of the area. The cobble stone streets and narrow paths reminded me a lot of European cities. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to come here, but if you are nearby then it is definitely worth a stop.

We went there after visiting Long Shan Temple, we just walked around and looking.. at outside since it was closed. The ancient street is one of the oldest preserved heritage sites in Taipei, the architectural is pretty good for photo-taking. The brick walls and wooden doors look so beautiful under the sun. It only took us 15 minutes to see it from outside.

One can imagine turning back time to the old days when you look at the buildings. Unfortunately, it is a very short stretch of buildings so don't expect too much.

This isn't a complete review, since we went there on Monday when the front side was closed. It's a little confusing because it has two sides: one fronting on Guangzhou Street, the other a walking street unto itself. The Guangzhou street side is mostly notable for the old brick construction, with some signs explaining the history of the spot where you are standing. It is an authentic historical street, related to the coal trade, dating back to the Qing Dynasty, but also including the Japanese colonial period, with preserved places, including a schoolroom, and a museum--and it's free. Another plus is its location: it's a short walk to the Longshan Temple and the Guangzhou Street Night Market.

We came here 2 years ago and thought it was ok... nothing has changed. We stumbled upon it again and thought the same.

We enjoyed some time wandering around the streets near the temple. and this had some good information, and some different architecture for the area. We also enjoyed the herbalist stalls in the nearby streets.
I wouldn't come here just for this.
