Hwashi Street and Wanhua
My son takes in a motorcycle accident near Longshan Temple and Huashi Street
We had decided to stay on Huashi Street (華西街) in Wanhua and toss the bikes on the Longshan Metro in the morning. Huashi Street in Taipei is one of the most famous tourist areas in the city, a step away from the Longshan Temple. Formerly a red-light district -- plenty of that still goes on -- the area is being remade as a "tourist attraction" with a "tourist night market." Ugh. But there are lots of good photo-ops in the markets around the area.
sameness equates to orderliness.
