Taipei was originally split into two settlements: Dadaocheng to the north and Wanhua in the south. Wanhua is the less gentrified of the two and is a vibrant jumble of every era. We will visit one of the best preserved old streets in the city and some of the earliest temples. Meandering through the streets we'll also take in many of its less well-known sites and learn about the area's checkered and often insalubrious history. Tom, known for his amazing hand-drawn maps of Taiwan's cities and neighborhoods, has walked every inch of this area (and drawn it too). He will use his extensive collection of maps, photos, and drawings to help bring the past to life.
