Yongle Fabric Market

This looks like DIY heaven for somebody!
DIY heaven, DIY heaven, DIY heaven, DIY heaven, DIY heaven, DIY heaven, aaaaah!
Wow, this really is a DIY heaven. Now I wonder why you didn・t bring me here before?
Um yeah, so this is the Yongle Fabric Market of Dadaocheng, Taipei.
You are not answering my question.
There are just so many places to visit in Taiwan, I wanted to save the best for, well maybe not last, but I wanted to surprise you.
And surprise me you have.
I・ll make it up to you, I promise.
You better.
This is one of the most interesting markets I・ve ever been in. On the first floor is a traditional food market with both fresh and processed food.
On the second floor, there is a huge fabric market, and on the third floor are rows after rows of professional tailors to help you put together what you buy here on the second floor.
Wow, look at all this fabric and all these stores. How many stores are there here?
112.
When did this market start?
More than 100 years ago.
Ah here it is! Cedric, these are especially popular with tourists: Hakka prints.
I understand why they・re popular. Look at that - bright, colorful, who doesn't like flowers?
I think these are peonies. Anyway so you take these home to DIY.
At home?
But for people like you who must do the DIY here and now and get it out of their system, then we go across the street.
Let・s go!
To tell you the truth, before last week, I didn・t know that Taiwan・s largest fabric market was here in Taipei, right under our noses and that it was open to the public to just walk around and to peek and to even buy things.
I've been to the theatre before and this cafe is very nice, the whole building, this is such a nice place to come and rest after you've walked so much in the fabric market.
Yeah you・re going to need to come here. You should come.
