Description

Today’s Zhongzheng Road was formerly known as Shuif Fanjiao Street, which was an important shipping transit stop along the Keelung River. It was also the starting point of Xizhi’s development and is known as “Xizhi’s first street.” There are many remnants of the area’s past glory, such as Niuchoutou Harbor and markets, barns, churches, and fortifying walls. There are also stores that go back many generations, selling goods such as rice, cloth, prescription drugs, and incense. Construction has allowed the street to maintain its long corridor feel, keeping tradition alive and letting Xizhi preserve this cultural treasure.
