Located in Taoyuan County, Daxi Old Street is one of the famous Taiwan old streets that used to be a bustling hub for camphor and tea trades. Daxi Old Street is filled with diverse stores with the façade designed in a Baroque style that is a perfect blend of the East and West. In the past, the architect would cover and hide their work before completing as they were afraid that their original design would be plagiarized by others.
Daxi Old Street is crowded by both local and oversea visitors each day for the rich cultural and traditional style architectures, as well as a wide array of Daxi specialties, such as firm tofu that are made into many flavors, old-time flavor tofu pudding that can dry one's thirst, and peanut caramel candy that are handmade. There are also a number of stores selling traditional folklore toys and goods that children may learn the life of people back in old days and for the adults to refresh their childhood memories.
