Escape the city and see some of Taipei’s best natural and historical attractions during a small-group tour of Jiufen Village, Yehliu Geopark, and Shifen Waterfall. Included round-trip transfers mean that you won’t have to worry about car hire or navigating, while letting someone else drive gives you more time to enjoy the scenery.

A very large tobacco factory complex converted into a modern art and design center with multiple buildings in a lovely landscaped setting and ecology pond. Interesting shops ranging from pottery to crafts to fine arts illustrating the past present and highlighting the potential future. With the gift store and a bookstore, this place is a one-stop shopping for souvenirs. Ecology pond is a large lotus pond with the goal where children can enjoy the sounds of frogs and insects and experience the beauty of ecology. It makes this place ideal for relaxation and mediation. If you like to wander in and out of shops and explore what is the next idea or concept around the next corner or building, you should allow more than one hour for an INTERESTING and FASCINATING ADVENTURE ... at the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park.

During the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945) this tobacco factory was an important part of the colonial administration, as the tobacco tax raised revenue to keep the government functioning. When Taiwan was returned to the Republic of China, the same thing applied, and the tobacco factory produced revenue for the government. It was shut down only in 1998, when it ceased producing cigarettes, mainly due to declining demand. It has many interesting features, including the Baroque Garden, with a fountain with naked ladies emerging from their baths.

We walked here after visiting Dr Sun Yat Sen memorial hall. The park has lots of green and scattered around the various buildings were many sculptures, unique stores, cafes and creative arts. When we were there, there were various events and a flea market.

Lots of designer shops, expensive. Also saw a few workshops, leather bag making, flass blowing, etc. Nice to walk around. There's a giant bookstore as well kf you're looking for a new book to read!

Some things take a while to catch on, so it seems to be with the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park. Some areas of the Creative Park are well worth a look. Taiwan is aiming to upgrade its design function, to become a leader in fashion and design rather than a follower. This is called ascending the value chain. The Creative Park is a good idea, but you can't mass produce art like computer chips.
