About 🔎

Hi, I am Eva Chen, I am a local guide in Taipei. Follow me to explore Dadaocheng, the most well-preserved old town of Taipei. It was the essential hub of trade and exchange. Walking on Dihua Street, the main artery of the old town, you are giong to experience the glory of the past Taipei, also the mix of old and new. Red-brick historical buildings, and hundreds of old shops, such as herbal medicine, dried goods, fabrics, and pastries. Meanwhile, many lovely cafes, elegant tea houses, souvenir shops, and trendy restaurants. The tour will last about 1.5h~2h, not including breaks or visits that you can do on your own. Suggest to plan at least 3 hours for the tour. The best time to visit Dadaocheng is AM10:00-PM6:00, Wednesday to Friday.
