Daxi Old Street

【Daxi Walking Tour:https://www.likeitformosa.com/daxi】

Daxi was the earliest developed area in Taoyuan. Thanks to small sailboats sailing between Dahan Creek and Tamsui River, Daxi had a thriving trade with China, and its prosperity brought success to many stores and businessmen. During the Japanese occupation period of the Taisho era, Baroque architecture was the popular building style and therefore many stores along Heping Road and Zhongshan Road were built in the Baroque style, but decorated with both Baroque ornamentation and characteristic totems of Min-nan in Southern China. On the facade of some old houses, auspicious Chinese fish and bat totems appear on Greek lintels or Roman columns, constituting a unique feature of Daxi. Because Heping Old Street was developed relatively later, the buildings in this area are better preserved. Specialty shops and food stands on the street always attract many tourists.
