    Minquan St., Sanxia District, New Taipei City 237, Taiwan (R.O.C)

The 260-meter-long Sanxia Old Street is the longest and most well-preserved old street in northern Taiwan. This once-bustling commercial street is now home to myriads of ancient shophouses that were built during the Japanese Colonial Era and still retains a nostalgic ambience. Fully demonstrating the skillful craftsmanship back then, the quaint architecture on Sanxia Old Street is left with a lingering Western influence as a result from the Meiji Restoration. A wealth of Baroque red-brick buildings with an embellished facade is a perfect combination of tradition and innovation in the most elegant way possible.

Today, Sanxia Old Street is dominated by a significant number of traditional businesses such as teahouses, handicraft stores and indigo dye shops, allowing visitors to dive into the local culture and take the time to appreciate the heritage. Die-hard foodies will have a blast trying many different delicacies, including, sushi, pig blood cake, croissants, just to name a few. The croissants here are more like buttery rolls in the shape of a bull horn than the French version, and they are stuffed with a diverse variety of fillings to please all tastes. If you are looking for a lively cultural experience in Taipei, then welcome to Sanxia Old Street.
