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.

    Reminder of times past


    Bopiliao Ancient Street dates from the first days of Chinese settlement in Taiwan. The architecture is quite beautiful, it reflects the prosperity of this area of Taipei, in days gone by. The charming Bopiliao Ancient Street is not far from the pictursque Lungshan Temple, Taipei's most visited temple. By thw way, don't leave your visit to Bopiliao Ancient to late or all you may find is closed doors.

    This street is completely different then any other one in Taipei


    I found the Bopiliao Street to be very interesting, mainly because the brick buildings are so much different then any other buildings in Taipei. The street is not far from the Longshan Temple and a few of the night markets, so it is worth a stop. I came here later in the evening, and there was not a whole lot going on. A few exhibits were open displaying art and the history of the area. The cobble stone streets and narrow paths reminded me a lot of European cities. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to come here, but if you are nearby then it is definitely worth a stop.

    Old and charming


    We went there after visiting Long Shan Temple, we just walked around and looking.. at outside since it was closed. The ancient street is one of the oldest preserved heritage sites in Taipei, the architectural is pretty good for photo-taking. The brick walls and wooden doors look so beautiful under the sun. It only took us 15 minutes to see it from outside.

    Turning back time


    One can imagine turning back time to the old days when you look at the buildings. Unfortunately, it is a very short stretch of buildings so don't expect too much.

    A Stroll Into the Past


    This isn't a complete review, since we went there on Monday when the front side was closed. It's a little confusing because it has two sides: one fronting on Guangzhou Street, the other a walking street unto itself. The Guangzhou street side is mostly notable for the old brick construction, with some signs explaining the history of the spot where you are standing. It is an authentic historical street, related to the coal trade, dating back to the Qing Dynasty, but also including the Japanese colonial period, with preserved places, including a schoolroom, and a museum--and it's free. Another plus is its location: it's a short walk to the Longshan Temple and the Guangzhou Street Night Market.
