Taipei: Bopiliao Old Street

Taipei: Bopiliao Old Street – The day before leaving Taipei was a free-and-easy day which that day itself has nothing to do, or place to go. The itinerary of that day was just random walk, shopping, eat and rest before heading to the next destination – Macau. So, I went to ask the hotel receptionist is there is any places to see around Ximending, and she recommended me to go to this Bopiliao Old Street for a little walk.
Bopiliao Old Street is located along Lane 173, Kangding Road, south of Laosong Elementary School in Taipei’s Wanhua District. At this Bopiliao Historic District, visitors can see well-preserved streets and traditional shop homes from the Qing period, as well as buildings from the Japanese occupation and early post-war periods.
Well, it’s very history, well-preserved, but it’s quite empty as well and nothing much to do. This place is more like a film setup, or a place for portraiture photography. But hey, if you have nothing to do, so a visit to here can kill time too.

Just a street, very clean, and very well-restored and preserved.
