PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE A CHANGE IN THE TOUR LEADER.
We start this walking tour at Longshan Temple, which was built in 1738 during the Qing dynasty in honor of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy. As with many Taiwanese temples, there are many other gods enshrined there. Traditional old streets, antique shops, and Chinese medicine shops surround the temple making the area great to visit due to its richness in folk art. From an old neighborhood to a newer one, we will then stroll over to the Ximending Pedestrian Area, the rst such shopping district of its kind in Taipei. It is often described by locals as the Harajuku or Shibuya of Taipei (two famous Tokyo fashion and entertainment districts). Back in the 1930's, Ximending became a well-known theater street and there are some famous historical sites to visit including the Red House Theater. We will end this tour at a famous old co ee shop located near the Ximen MRT Station.
