Take Photos at Dadaocheng Tourist Info Center to Win Prizes Feb. 26-29

In a campaign to promote the historical block, The Department of Information and Tourism (TPEDOIT) invites travelers in Taipei to have their photos taken at Dadaocheng Tourist Information Center—URS 44--between February 26 and 29.

According to TPEDOIT, URS 44 is designed with the inspiration of Chinese medicine stores. A retro Taiwanese-style living room dominates the space, offering tourists a place to rest while feeling the vibes of old Dihua Street.

As Taipei’s commercial hub in the early 20th century, Dadaocheng boasts the island’s largest textile retailer Yongle Market, tourist attraction Taipei Xia Hai City God Temple, Fujian and Baroque architecture, Urban Regeneration Centers, as well as burgeoning shops selling cultural and creative products.

Visitors arriving at the Dadaocheng Tourist Information Center will find decorations and furniture reminiscent of herbs stores, be it the mortar and pestle, medicine cabinet, or herb scale. Information brochures can be found by pulling out the drawers of the medicine cabinet.

To take part in the photo-shoot activity, individuals will need to wear “hipster” style accessories (available at the venue) and pose for a picture. They will then receive a free postcard and a raffle chance to win a free Dadaocheng tour. The first 50 participants each day will receive an additional souvenir at Wang Tea Shop.
