Built from containers and log garners, the creative market which opens in the afternoon is the best place for treasure hunting. The quality handwork booths, well-designed and irregular performances make the market an urban park for amusement.

After that, we will ride an Ubike to Lin An Tai Historical House & Museum, the oldest yet best-preserved southern Fujian-style building in Taipei. It was set up by LIN Qinming and his family in 1785 as they garnered a lot of money from doing business. The house was named after LIN’s place of origin Quanzhous Anxi and his store. It was then relocated to the current site due to the development of the city. The government of Taipei has built the museum and opened it to the public. As a traditional southern Fujian-style building, the house features a natural design. Ancestors’wisdom can be manifested from each part of the building. Therefore, it is an important tourist spot in Taipei.

Visitors can appreciate the beautiful sceneries, renowned fountains and enjoy the most casual afternoon by bike on the green grass near the river. In addition to natural sceneries, there are also lots of sports facilities in the park. So, it is a good place for residents to relax and take exercises.
