Shifen Old Street

Shifen Old Street in Taipei is a charming and nostalgic location that has become a favorite photo spot due to its unique blend of history, lantern lighting activities, and picturesque waterfall. Here are five reasons why it’s a popular choice for photoshoots:

1.) Lantern Lighting Activities: One of the main attractions of Shifen Old Street is the opportunity to participate in lantern lighting activities. Visitors can write their wishes or messages on colorful lanterns and release them into the sky, creating a magical and ethereal scene that’s perfect for capturing in photos.

2.) Historical Ambiance: Shifen Old Street retains its historical ambiance with its narrow lanes, wooden storefronts, and traditional architecture. This vintage backdrop adds a sense of nostalgia and authenticity to your photos.

3.) Waterfall Scenery: Shifen Waterfall, also known as the “Little Niagara of Taiwan,” is in close proximity to the old street. The waterfall’s grandeur and the surrounding natural beauty provide a stunning setting for both landscape and portrait photography.

4.) Railway Tracks and Trains: The old street is intersected by active railway tracks, adding an element of visual interest and uniqueness to your photos. The iconic scene of the Shifen Railway Station and visitors releasing lanterns on the tracks is a favorite subject for many photographers.

5.) Local Market and Street Vendors: Shifen Old Street features a lively market atmosphere with street vendors selling a variety of snacks, souvenirs, and traditional goods. The bustling scenes and vibrant colors make for engaging and candid photography.
