Its length is about two hundred meters, and its architecture dates back to the early days when the Republic of China was newly established. Architecture buffs will enjoy this display of Japanese colonial architecture. Peruse historic relics and stores selling art and ceramics. Be sure to visit Zushi Temple, considered to be one of the most beautifully sculpted in Taiwan.

Small shops, some selling traditional clothing style, handmade calligraphy brushes, and many selling giant bullhorn pastries. A temple is there as well. During the afternoon is good to visit as most food stalls are open and it's not crowded.

It is easy to get there, if you would visit there, you can get there anyways except MRT. When you walk on this street, you'll be attracted by antique buildings as if to return to the past.There are many stores in it, I suggest Powder round tofu pudding! This place is bustling and hustling at Chinese New Year.By the way,... More

This was a fun street if you enjoy shopping and older buildings. Many buildings are over 100 years old. Try the bullhorns – good pastry!

Great alternative to the night markets. Worth a few hours... might seem like a outdoor mall to some. They say its "old".. but that appears to be cosmetic as the brickwork looks fairly new, maintained and repetitive in design. Not exactly my definition of OLD.

If you are nearby, this is also a great street to visit. Each of these old street has different characters. They all have a different feel. Go spend few hours and eat some snack!

TAke a local train from Taipei Main Station to Yingge station and first visit Yingge Ceramics and Old Street and museum. Then visit Sanxia by taxi from Yingge. We did not do this. Took a taxi from Taipei 101 , it took a very long time and was very expensive. I will never do that again, but that was not... More

I really like to visit the old streets of Taiwan instead of the night markets. Sangria Old Treet is a representative of Old Streets in Taiwan. The historical temple shows you the history and religious of local Taiwanese. The street is nicely decorated and maintained its original building architectures. It is not a long street but you may enjoy watching... More

靠近台北的老街.從捷運站出發只要30分鐘以內.您可以造訪百年的廟宇跟享受許多的傳統美食.甚至還可以坐在河岸邊觀賞美景.推薦在這邊停留半天 Nice old street near Taipei. Only takes 30 minutes from MRT station. You can visit 100+ years temple here and enjoy many type of traditional food here. You can also sit by river. Just hand around here for half day.
