Heritage and Culture Education Center of Taipei (the historic Bopiliao area ) 臺北市鄉土教育中心(剝皮寮歷史街區)

Anchor point

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.

    Brought back in time


    I found this ancient street from a tour guide book and ventured out with the family by following the map and instructions. The ancient street is very nearby the Longshan Temple and Longshan MRT Station and about a quick 10 minute walk around the old neighbourhood takes us to the Bopiliao ancient street. The ancient street was preserved by the Taipei Mayor in 2009 to preserve its more than hundreds years of history maintained from the Qing Dynasty and one of the earliest establishment of the Old Taipei City that connects DanShui River that helped with the vibrancy of the city. The city has done a wonderful job preserving the ancient street with many free activities by artists and fun games for children to participate. I even think this could be a perfect venue for some wedding photo shooting.

    Not much to do


    Not much to do here. You can find here a museum which describes the old days of Taipei, we didn’t find it interesting. The place is very closed to Longshun temple.

    traditional quarter of Taipei


    bustling commercial district with more traditional buildings; Close to the night market area is the quarter with the most ancient buildings in Taipei

    nice street


    there is very little in it, just an art gallery and a shop or two, but nice and quirky so glad i went back when it was open because they actually close the whole street when the shops are closed (including Monday)!

    Accidental find


    Stumbled onto this place after a short visit to LungShan temple. I was walking aimlessly nearby when I saw a group of students running about and filling up work sheets. So as I turned about and entered from a side entrance and found this ancient street. Nearest subway station is LongShan station, blue line in the direction of DingPu. Imagine you are facing LungShan temple, this ancient street is a few blocks to the right of the temple. At its peak during the late 1800, Bopiliao was one of the busiest and most prosperous commercial areas in Taipei, home to various merchants and was one of the major areas for the coal trade. It is now preserved by the city government as a historical and cultural district where visitors can admire many different architectural styles. It’s quite deserted and there is a customer service counter and washroom. A few of the shop houses is a place for exhibitions and educational center.
