Taiwan Old Street - Sanxia, Taipei Trip 2011

My husband and I love Sanxia.  Probably because of the new township which is well planned compared to the other areas in Taiwan.  The place looks serene with new apartment blocks and the roads are not as congested.  Some pictures of our road journery to Sanxia.
Transportation wise is well linked.  You can travel to Sanxia from Taipei by MRT.  Take MRT [Blue Line] to Yongning station, then take Shuttle Bus No. 30 to Sanxia Old Street.  From there you can explore the place by foot.
Sanxia Morning Market is around the vicinity of Sanxia Old Street.  Market scenes in pictures.

All about Sanxia Old Street [Minquan Road] in pictures.  Sanxia Old Street - the southern section of Minquan Street in Sanxia - consists of a row of old western-style buildings with a baroque archway gallery of red brick.  Decorations on the buildings consist of intricate wood cravings as well as bronze and stone sculptures, giving the street the sobriquet "Oriental Art Palace".
