The area around Kaifeng Street is riddled with the scars of old Taipei. Head just past Zhongxiao Bridge and you'll see the "North Gate" built in the Qing Dynasty standing amongst traffic, telling past glories. Around Bo'ai Road, stroll through the "photography street" and join hobbyists while witnessing the history of photography equipment. Not too far away you'll reach the hustle and bustle of "Chengzhong Market" where you'll sneak a peek at the daily life of locals. Visit the many bookstores on Chongqing S. Road where you can unleash your inner bookworm and enjoy the scent of ink on paper.
