Known as the major street of Longtan, Sankeng is an authentic Hakka village. In the past, Sankeng was the most prosperous harbor along the river with much hustle and bustle. Yet, after the water ditch was completed, the water level at Dahan River drastically dropped, and Sankeng’ commercial ascendency decreased as well.

三坑子老街以永福宮為核心
Sankeng Old Street is situated in Longtan District, Taoyuan City. It starts from Yongfu Temple as the center of the settlement and spreads out to “water streams for laundry.” With a narrow outer part and wider inner part, the street has quaint characteristics that attract many tourists. Sankeng Old Street has preserved the traditional Hakka cultural elements. Moreover, it was the shooting spot of film productions like David Loman and Love Together and is definitely worth visiting.

紅磚饒富懷舊味The origin of Sankeng can be traced back to the development of Longtan by Lu Xi Fan during the reign of Emperor Kangxi. Only after 1744 did the Han immigrants arrive. The place is a fluvial terrace with three incised surfaces formed by three rivers flowing into Dahan River, which is the origin of the name, Sankeng.
街巷格局是客家庄的特色之一
When you enter Sankeng Old Street, you will see the “water streams for laundry.” It used to be where women washed clothes. The narrow and meandering Sankeng Old Street is not suitable for cars. This type of street is one of the typical characteristics of a Hakka village. The snaky streets are made to prevent burglars and thieves. This short old street has kept the old traditional gallery style. The unique shops here sell various Hakka specialty foods, including Hakka Buns, Caozaiguo, Hakka Mochi with ginger and brown sugar, and Kumquat sauce.

三坑子老街保有舊式步廊
If you walk to the end of the old street, you will find Yongfu Temple at the center of the Sankeng settlement. The Temple was built in 1791, and the deities worshipped in the main hall now are Emperor Yao, Yu the Great, and Emperor Shun. It is also the religious center for local residents. Meanwhile, the tourism green corridor running from Yuemei, Daxi to Sankeng riverside has Daxi's Shimen Reservoir on the one side and Longtan’s Sankeng Old Street on the other side. You can enjoy the diverse views of the reservoir, farm fields and cultural old street in one attempt.

    老街的部份其實不大,主要是可以騎腳踏車進去山邊田野繞繞,或者多開一段路到三坑自然生態公園走走.假日最好能早上早點抵達才能充份享受老街及自然公園的靜謐美好.

    お寺の後ろは駐車できます。短い古い街ですが、たくさんの食べ物があります。お客さんの肉まん、紹興ソーセージ、古朝の豆花があります。お寺の左側に行くといいです。大きな花畑があります。写真を撮ってもいいです。

    傳統客家老街

    Traveler rating:4 2019-02

    老街很短,有小店賣客家傳統點心和小吃,也有賣當地種植的新鮮蔬菜和養殖的放山雞,也可以到附近的石門大圳騎腳踏車或健走,非常適合一日遊的地方。

    のどかな老街

    Traveler rating:4 2018-06

    ごく狭い老街で、脇には田んぼがあったり観光客もまばらとのどかな雰囲気だった。大渓老街とセットで行ったが三坑の方がはるかに静かだった。屋外の洗い場では住人が洗い物をしていた。
