Taipei Things to Do: 645 reviews and 1,452 photos

 
 

For more than 100 years, <b>Tihua Street</b> has been the site of Taipei's largest markets for canned goods and dried items such as mushrooms, tree fungus, fish and squid, as well as Chinese medicines and textiles. Many old businesses are still being run from here, including rice mills, bambooware stores, lantern shops and farm supply stores. The picture shows a typical Taiwanese shop that sells paints.
