Monday:open 24 hours




Dihua Street Section 1 south of Taipei Bridge is the go-to place for all of your Lunar New Year shopping. This street is part of the historic Dadaocheng area, an early commercial and trading center of the city as far back as the late Qing period. In addition to New Year's supplies, there are a number of stores here selling tea, Chinese medicinal herbs, and wholesale cloth. The street has also lovingly preserved its old world charms over the years.

In the days leading up to the Lunar New Year Eve, Dihua Street is wall-wall people. To accommodate the crowd, the city government expanded the shopping area of the street in 2008, and linked it with Minsheng West Road, Nanjing West Road, Civic Boulevard, Ningxia Night Market and the rear train station area, giving people even more choices for their holiday shopping.

    Interesting antique buildings and nice walk


    A good place to go for a walk. Contains a market, shops housed in antique buildings and new buildings. While the street is mainly selling dried food, there are interesting shops selling Chinese new year decor, snacks, food and tea. If you are staying near Taipei Main Station, you can walk to Dihua Street from Taipei Main Station which is about a 30 mins walk from the station.

    A mix of old and new shops


    It is still the place to go for Chinese medicine, herbs, and sundry shopping before the Lunar New Year. But here and there, we find some new dessert shops, coffee shops, etc. And yes, there are plenty of preserved fruits and chinese tea too.
