Liuxi cultural city

I like this place very much. The Taiwanese old movie-like streets are the places, the older generation remembers still very well. It carries the local lifestyle of various decades starting from 30's to the 60's surrounded with houses built following the ancient construction techniques.

I like this place very much. The Taiwanese old movie-like streets are the places, the older generation remembers still very well. It carries the local lifestyle of various decades starting from 30’s to the 60’s surrounded with houses built following the ancient construction techniques.

The main construction materials for those buildings are red bricks and wood, however those two are not used throughout the whole buildings. The area doesn’t have any big modern buildings to make people feel pressured. The old street has a Chinese medicine shop, a booth for a person who is foretelling, a hotel, a foreign-style clothing shop, a disc shop and so much more. You can also find simple wooden advertisements.

The street has maintained its typical Taiwanese traditional way constructing and the cultural environment. The plan is that the type of the street will expand further, since it makes more people know their cultural background. Ride your bicycle through the ancient street to relax and feel comfortable. Welcome to Taiwan to have a part of the local culture.
