The Heritage and Culture Education Center of Taipei is located in the historic Bopiliao area of Wanhua District near Longshan Temple. This area has preserved much of its Qing period roots, with arched brick arcades, carved pattern window lattices, and other traces of the city’s early elegance. Old-style shop-houses (with stores in front and living areas in back) also remain from that period, opening a window to the early development of the Bangka (Wanhua) area, lending a unique historical and architectural flavor to the area.

Visitors can learn more about the history of the area at the Heritage and Culture Education Center. The center has different theme displays and hosts special exhibits on Bopiliao as well as educational activities.

    Sunday surprise


    As we were wandering the narrow streets we heard very catchy music, and happened upon a street party with a band and the band members and observers singing and dancing together -- and all of this in 91-F heat and high humidity! What a fun, lively area . . . at least when the band is in action.

    Quite a small area with few blocks of ancient buildings. We took about 20 mins to finish walking around and taking pictures. Not bad!

    Historical roots of Taipei


    If you love history, then you must visit this place. It's actually just one lane flanked today by shops and art galleries. However, its roots date back to the Qing dynastic period (early 17th century onwards). The place was abandoned during the Japanese occupation of the city in the 1940s. Today it has been restored and walking along it gives you a feel of travelling back in time. Recommended for history buffs! :D

    Once one of the busiest and most prosperous commercial areas of Taipei


    Known today as Lane 173 Kangding Road, Bopiliao is a well-preserved Qing Dynasty (late 1800s) street that used to be a major passage between Mangka District and Guting District. At its peak, it was one of the busiest and most prosperous commercial areas of Taipei. During the Japanese Colonial Period, Bipoliao was displaced by the current Guangzhou Street. Begun in the early 2000s, renovation continues to restore the street to its former historic glory. Kudos to Taipei for wanting to preserve a part of their past! Although not as interesting as Dihua Street, this place is worthy of a visit.

    Interesting old building but not much to see, we happened to walked by and discover the building. Spend about 5 mins in there.
