For adventurous eaters, this is the premiere spot to buy dried delicacies like longyan fruits, scallops, mushrooms and abalone. Before Chinese New Year is when this street is at its busiest, when Taiwanese flock to the market to stock up for Lunar New Year's feasts.

Not the easiest find and a little underwhelming. Lots of traditional Chinese medicine shops interspersed with clothing, handcrafts, jewellery and small cafes. I found the architecture of the buildings more interesting.

宿泊先のロイヤル台北から、中山駅方面に歩いて行き、駅を超えてさらに直進すると、乾物屋、生地屋さんなど、いわゆる問屋街が広がってきます。以前は地下鉄を利用していましたが、歩けない距離ではありません。運動を兼ねて散策しました。苦茶、青草茶のお店では、新鮮なお茶をいただけて、とても爽快です。カラスミ、カラスミ醬、ドンコしいたけ、プーアール茶、などなど、見るだけでもとても楽しいです。 Dihua St. commercial district is very famous for a lot of souvenirs shops. Bitter tea and peppermint tea are both very nice! Fish eggs called KARASUMI are one of most famous souvenir foods. Why don’t you go around Dihua St. commercial district!

The Dihua walk is something that the locals tour charges but we thought to just do the walk ourselves. It is a very long walk from the station. We go off the Shuanglian market and walk from there. The street is not exactly old town...More

quite out the way of most other things so we were a bit underwhelmed when we found the street, and almost didn't notice we were on it. Shops all sell the same things and it's not as scenic as we'd hoped.

Old but not quaint (as in prettified). Lots of shops selling dried fruits, dried foods and some old medicine shops. Could get quite hot and busy at times. Walk further from the main street to get a better feel for the area. Museum 207 was...More

Dihua Street is this small alley in the Dadaocheng area. It doesn't seem much when you're there but I was surprised with how pretty it looks on photos. We had lunch at this small noodle shop by the sidewalk near the station. Ok, this is...More

Dihua Street was on my must do list and it did not disappoint. Went Sunday, February 11, and started at the "northern" end of Dihua Street. Took MRT to Daqiaotou station and walked at most 10 minutes to Dihua Street. From there we walked south....More

Close walking distance from Beimen MRT. 10-15 min. Many restored old architecture buildings there. Quite interesting. Wish we had more time to slowly understand the history. Many medicinal halls here with Chinese herbs & dried goods. Reasonably priced. Do try to bargain a little if...More

With its narrow cobbled streets and old shops, the area harkens back to a bygone era. It’s not large, but the compact area is buzzing with activity from traditional shopkeepers selling their wares to street vendors competing for space literally spilling out into the streets....More

It seems only Dihua Street itself has the action. You can peek into the side streets to see what they have when you are there. Mostly some small eateries. Some were recommended by locals as must-eats, noodles with pork... More
