To begin with: the Red House.
Once built as Taipei’s first public market (1908), nowadays a well-preserved historical site, managed by the Taipei Culture Foundation.
We had our lunch at the Red House Teahouse, after which we visited the area with all the small artisinal, artistic shops.
The shops were cute, often selling quirky, fun stuff.
Overall the building inside had a quirky, creative vibe. Not spectacular, but nice for an hour and for a lunch.
|I liked the banana series.|
|Would love to have this little banana-man myself. The cool guy would look great in my house!|
|Some of the display cases showed stamps. Always nice for the stamp lover in me!|
|Two floors with each about 8 to 10 small shops.|
There was some street art around the Red House as well:
Talking about street art, let me show you some of Taipei’s street art in my next post.
