Treasure Hill Arts Village is a historic cluster situated under the Fuhe Bridge, near the water supply plant. With winding alleys and stairs snaking up and down the gentle slopes, a special landscape is created where natural scenery and cultural clusters interweave along the surrounding hills. In recent years, many artists and creative studios have moved into the Village and opened themselves to the public through the policy of revitalization and conservation, forming unique scenery where cultural coexistence clusters are scattered along the hillside. In addition, a two- or three-hundred-year-old Buddhist temple worshipping Guanyin stands on the hillside; it is a place for people to worship or pray for blessings. To appreciate the river scenery, one can cycle along the river banks on the bikeway from Xindian all the way to Tamsui River, to enjoy the exhilaration of riding with the wind.

    Artists' colony emerges from squatter village


    In the late 1940s, Chiang Kai-shek and his loyal followers retreated to Taiwan. Treasure Hill was an anti-aircraft installation, which evolved into a squatter colony. The squatters stole power, took water from the nearby Xindian River and also caught fish. Inevitabbly, the authorities took contol, aiming to turn Treasure Hill into a sustainable urban community. It didn't quite work out that way, and more artists returned than old soldiers. These days, Treasure Hill is an artists village, Visitors are welcome, Treasure Hill is walking distance from the MRT Gongguan Station (Green Line).

    My favorite location in Taipei


    This hidden gem is a fascinating little village with an active artist community and is my absolute favorite location in all of Taipei. The odd shapes and arrangements of the buildings, an artifact of its origins as an illegal settlement, makes it fun to explore and lends the place a somewhat surreal atmosphere (respect the signs indicating where the permanent residents' private spaces begin, however). There are usually several indoor and outdoor art exhibits on display, often in an informal way, sometimes including videos and, more rarely, performance art at scheduled times. Cafes and shops may also be open: I highly recommend Tadpole Point. All in all, I recommend going with an open mind and heart and a desire to simply relax and take in whatever the experience provides (which will vary day to day, month to month, etc., based on what's going on and which artists are in residence). You can also walk down to the riverbank and go for a jog or bike ride along the river, or, in the other direction and under the overpass, discover fascinating street art.

    Lovely calming space


    We really enjoyed our trip to Treasure Hill. It felt very peaceful, perhaps more so because we went during heavy rain so there were no other tourists about, and we were able to poke in and out of the different shops and spaces and talk to some of the artists. A different side to the city really worth visiting - if you can find a time when it's quiet.

    Cute village


    Take a walk around from the nearby metro station. It’s nice to see how artists all over the world put they’re art and how they live in such communities. Monday’s closed for tours...but just pass by the security and be quiet.

    No treasure here


    I am not sure what the attraction here is. Mostly closed stores without anyone around. Almost nothing was open and hardly anyone around. It is also not that easy to get to. Give it a skip and don’t waste your time.
