This half-day walking tour offers a cultural visit to the history and main landmarks of Dadaocheng, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Taipei.
Dadaocheng was a thriving business district at the beginning of the last century that developed with the tea trade. The neighborhood maintains a large number of traditional shops and buildings, and one of the most popular temples in the city. A walk through its streets offers the traveler a ticket to the Taipei of the past.
The streets of Dadaocheng breathe tradition.
