After restoration and repurposing efforts, this historic site has been revitalized into a versatile space featuring contemporary exhibitions, seamlessly blending urban surroundings with historical significance. The North Gate (Cheng’en Gate) and Taipei Info Hub located nearby the Taipei Railway Station, on the other hand, provide insights into the history, culture, and commercial trade development of old Taipei City. During lunchtime, you can explore Taipei City Mall, known for its convenient transportation and extensive offerings, to discover delicious cuisines, and snacks, and shop for souvenirs.
