TaoyuanA Pilgrimage to Old Streets and Nature
Daxi and Sanxia are situated at the border of Taoyuan and New Taipei City. Both of the towns have old streets which feature Baroque- and Fujian-style brick buildings. The favorable location and convenient waterways contributed much to the prosperous development of cloth dyeing and logging industries in early times. However, the two trades declined due to the downturn of traditional industries and river transportation. Now, the old streets are turned into new tourist attractions with their beautiful buildings.
