Industrial sites gone hip

Taiwan Highlight Industrial sites gone hip

Huashan 1914 Creative Park used to be the grounds of Taipei Winery. The site with a factory building and huge warehouses is now home to hip concept stores, exhibition spaces, and trendy cafes. Have a coffee at VVG Thinking, it reminded me of Europe ☺

Don’t forget to visit these!

The Red House, a former opera and film house. Head over here for charming little one man/woman artsy shops. Near the Ximending area. 10 Chengdu Rd.
Songshan Cultural & Creative Park, Taipei’s old tabacco factory. It’s Taipei’s design hot spot! I loved the design museums (Red Dot Design Museum and the Taiwan Design Museum) on site. PS Indulge yourself with award winning pastries from Wu Pao Chun at the basement of the Design Center.
