If you happen to be around the area, it's nice to take a walk through the streets. The buildings were well preserved. Lots of variety of items on sale. Traditional foods made the traditional way; toys played by children in the old days; tea sets....More

Had a nice, quick stroll on this place. Was here for only about an hour, enough to complete the old street, strolling through the food stalls area and crossed the bridge. If you're a photographer and looking for best view and scenery, come only when...More

Sanxia Old Street surprised my wife and me. It is less famous than Tamsui Old Street or Pingxi Old Street, but it is definitely more photogenic, probably only second to Jiufen Old Street, in my opinion. The nearby Qingshui Zushi Temple 清水祖師廟 rivals Longshan Temple,...More

As with all the old streets, this one has its own flavor and specialties. It's easy to walk around and see the old buildings that have been partially refurbished. Take a walk in the old temple - the public toilet is in it anyway. Try...More
