Directions to Four Four South Village
A popular attraction for locals nearby the 101 tower, Four Four South Village (四四南村)is a landmark reminder of Taiwan's not-so-distant military past. The site - and several others much like it - was developed after the Chinese Civil War as a residential area for members of the Nationalist military and their families and dependents.
As of today it is not very mainstream for international tourists, but it is a must do for history lovers. In modern times the village has been repurposed and fully converted into one part museum, one part cafe. From the outside, the old buildings collide with brightly coloured doors. Inside, find old photographs and relics from the site's original inhabitants.
The nostalgic architecture of a bygone era offers visitors a more intimate understanding of the enigmatic mistress that is Taipei city.
Visitors that stop by here on weekends will note that Four Four South is a multipurpose space that also transforms into a market. On Saturdays and Sundays, vendors stream into Four Four South Village to set up stalls of handicrafts and edibles. Overall, the theme of this 'simple market' is to promote slow living. The experience of this market seems a total contrast to the manic movements of the big city. A visit to this market reminds us of the delicious natural foods and remarkable local talent that are being cultivated in and around Taipei city. Four Four South Village is multifarious tourist spot, worth visiting.
