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.

我從小陪著父親逛迪化街,只賣早餐的民樂旗魚米粉湯是我的最愛。自從社區開始改造,爲迪化街帶入了活力,新的店家多會善用資源設計產品、烹調食物,新酒食物都各有特色,讓人著迷。請預留足夠的時間慢慢散步,如果需要購物,別忘了帶著可以拖著行走的購物袋。😊My father used to take me to do shopping in Dihua District when I was young. There are all kinds of Taiwanese street foods to eat, especially the breakfast. Even since some new business move it, it is more vital and a lot of new...More

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

Whilst I don’t think this is one of the top 10 attractions in Taipei, as per my guidebook. It was certainly an interesting street to stroll along. Lots of spices, herbs and dried goods being sold. Many of them completely unrecognisable! During lunchtime mid week...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

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
