        Sanxia - Traditional Aesthetics
        Time experience cultural aesthetics to the fullest! The “Daliao Historical Tea House” is imbued with Japanese ambiance and features exhibits about its owner Taiwan Tea Corporation. Drinking tea in the rustic building offers a very restorative experience. “Baiji Xingxiu Temple” is located half-way up Baiji Mountain and is the Sanxia branch of Xingtian Temple. It is dedicated to Martial Emperor Guan Di, and the serene surroundings puts worshippers at ease. No visit to Sanxia could possibly be completed without walking along “Sanxia Old Street,” the longest old street in northern Taipei. The merchant or family names inscribed over the doorways hark back to the old days. Local food such as the Golden Croissant (金牛角), Hand-made Tofu Pudding (手工豆花), and Banyan Tree Noodles (榕樹下古早麵) are what the local people grew up eating! “Sanxia Blue Dye Park” is dedicated to the promotion of indigo dyeing culture and you can try this traditional craft for yourself here. As the blue color gradually appears on the cloth it takes on captivating patterns that make handicrafts all the more fun. A renovated old house is the home of CAN Culture, Art & Nature. Inside are the works of many artists that show off the beauty of Sanxia. The last stop of the day is “New Taipei City Hakka Museum” with its distinctive Hakka round house. The exhibitions on Hakka culture provide a fitting finale to a day filled with art and culture.
