Taipei Lunar New Year Festival (臺北年貨大街)
-Dihua Street(迪化街) Celebrating its 20th year this year!

The traditional Chinese Spring Festival of 2015 (February 19th) is coming.
Chinese people go shopping before and during the Lunar New Year Festival.
People shop for holiday food, decorations, clothes, gifts… etc.

Dihua Street is the most famous New Year shopping avenue in Taipei. It’s a part of 大稻埕 (Dadaocheng).
“During the mid-1800s, goods from China would arrive by ship at the Dadaocheng port in Taiwan. Imported silk, medicine and artwork would be traded for local rice, sugar and produce. Dihua Street’s proximity to the port made it the sensible location to sell the imported goods, so it became the busiest market in Taiwan.” –  Taipei Times

You can really have fun and enjoy from those historical buildings and streets.
