Was introduced to Bopiliao by the Meander Hostel. DIY it as part of a walking tour from Ximending. Just a 15 min walk. It's an ancient street with very rich history and architecture. It's now used as an exhibition stage n we saw many young upcoming artists at work. There's also a museum at the start of the street. There... More

A road with a collection of small shops including things such as tailors and things you would not typically make purchases from unless it was part of a plan. The thumbnail picture is nice at night but it is not worth doing as an attraction in its own right although if you are in the area visiting the nearby museums... More

The place is full of rich history and culture. It is the district where the gangsters of the past hang out so the traditional buildings showcase the lives of typical gangsters. The architectural element is pretty cool for photo-taking. The brick walls and wooden doors work really well under good lighting. The place is a good to visit during the... More

We stopped by on our walking tour from TourMeAway and got some local perspective on this project. It's an interesting site, but still under development.

The place was finishing up renovations and restorations when I visited, but it was clear to see that it's a place frozen in time. From the old malls and galleries that once marked a busy marketplace in early Taiwan, to WW2 "souvenirs" in the form of war-damaged walls and pillars, Bopiliao is a good walk for appreciating Taiwan's history.

This is a nice place to understand and appreciate the life of the ancestors of Taiwan. It is a walk from the past. Will be good to join historic tour with this included. It will make you appreciate Taiwan and its friendly people more :)

We stumbled on this by chance and if you want to get an impression what old Taipei was like then this is a good insight. The day we were there a film crew was recording what my friends said was a TV series. It's easy to wander about and there is sufficient information about the architecture.

All China once looked like Bopiliao Ancient Street. It's a place to step back in time and see what life was like in the old days. Not many relics like this remain in Taiswan.
