I am not too sure if it was worth visiting as all the buildings have been restored but most were empty. This used to be a busy commercial area 200 years ago but now all you can see are some Qing Dynasty and Japanese era shops made from red brick.

Just 10 minutes walking towards the left of Lungshan Temple or towards the right from the Lungshan Exit 1 is the Bopiliao Old Street Historic Block or Lane 173 Kang-Ding Road. The red building block here are of red bricks and combinations of timber for the doors and windows and mostly has gone through restoration by maintaining its original architectures... More

When you visit the Longshan Temple, don't forget to visit Bopilao street. This street is not far from this temple. Exit from the temple from the main gate, just walk to the left about 100 meters and you will found the Bopiliao street. It is nice to take pictures at this location.

It's just a renovated street, actually it looked like it was just consumed by fire, no offence but for graffiti artists and art enthusiasts this is worth visiting. Another instagram memory. If you're close to Longshan temple, then it makes sense to visit this place.

There is a lot of potential here, but not yet realised. Hopefully will be developed, hopefully not as just another shopping market. Worth a look nevertheless.

At least it felt like a Movie Set. It was restored to a certain degree. Although I'd check again to see if the buildings are structurally sound, especially in earthquake-country. Many of the pillars are listing. Also that some of the bricks are turning to dust.

The streets are only now undergoing reconstruction so there isn't that much to see yet. Perhaps when more is done it will be more attractive.

After reading my guidebook I had the impression that this street is a must-see. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. Of course it's a historic place and they did a lot to recontruct the street and the buildings. But it was a kind of lifeless. Not all stores were in use and I had the impression that they try to...
