Daxi DistrictTaoyuan City

An enchanting old street, an awe-inspiring dam and a mausoleum and sculpture park devoted to a former president create a memorable visit in this district.

Daxi is a quaint area showcasing the old-fashioned traditions and quirks of northern Taiwan. It has an exceptional uniform architectural style, with baroque buildings dating back to the Japanese occupation of the island at the end of the 19th century. While visiting Daxi, try the dried tofu in the various delicious dishes from the region.

Running through the heart of the district is Daxi Old Street. Watch the ironmongers and blacksmiths among the locals hard at work in old-world trades. Get information on the latest events and activities at the Tourist Information Center and admire the ornate façades of the wooden furniture shops and restaurants. The fronts of the buildings are adorned with carvings of flowers and animals.

Outside Daxi is a world of picturesque natural wonders. Head south to the Shihmen Reservoir, a stunning lake crowned by green mountains. Enjoy spectacular views of the water and the rolling terrain from the raised road along the top of the Shihmen Dam.

A little east, the extraordinary Cihu Mausoleum holds the remains of President Chiang Kai-shek entombed in a black marble sarcophagus. Explore the grounds and learn about the president in the Cihu Visitor Center. Amble along the slopes of the Cihu Memorial Sculpture Park near the mausoleum and study the impressive sculptures of the president that were relocated here from other places around the island.

Between Cihu and Daxi stands the Ta Shee Golf and Country Club. Practice your swing on its 27 holes, where major championships have been held.

Daxi is located at the southern end of Taoyuan City in northern Taiwan. Drive southwest from the center of Taipei for 30 miles (50 kilometers) to get here in 1 to 2 hours. Travel through the region for surrounding sights such as the Dongyanshan National Forest Recreation Area, Jiaoban Mt. Park and the Xiaowulai Skywalk.
