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.

Must visit for those who are not familiar with TaiwanDihua Street is a traditional wholesale street that visitors can find a compressed version of Taiwan for its street food and culture. Good to spend a couple of hours. It will be fun!
Old shopping streetNowadays it's a mix of old and modern shops and places. We found it a convenient place to buy some dried fruits of good quality as there was a good selection of those. Not a must see place - some interesting 19th century architecture, but generally bit dissapointing.
Historical streetDihua Street sits at the heart of Taipei. It is an important historical street with lots of shops. The street has many medicinal shops. A great street for strolling down.

Nice strolling streetEven if one is not interested in oriental herbs and cures, this is a delightful street to stroll to experience the vendor's stalls filled with dried fruits, roots and herbs. Don't forget to look up and about to also appreciate the varied architectural features.
If you’re needing a change of pace and ambiance whilst in the cityMost of the shophouses along Dihua St. look newly renovated when I visited. Alot of unfamiliar dry ingredients and herbs being sold. It is a good place to wander around listlessly as there is not much of a crowd in the area.
