Located at the southwest corner of the west park of Beijing International Sculpture Park, Taiwan Street in Beijing is open to the public today.
It is the first street in Beijing with the theme of Taiwan culture and will become the sister street of Taipei's famous Shihlin Street in Taiwan.
Covering an area of 43,562 square meters, the street is L-shaped and has a length of 500 meters. It is made of 12 buildings and is built in accordance with Taiwan style.
At the street, you can find a native Taiwanese high-end dinning room, a music restaurant, a sporting restaurant and other theme halls. More than 100 Taiwan entrepreneurs will sell Taiwan’s snacks, native products and art work.
The idea for Taiwan Street was first conceived of in 1993 and with more economic and cultural communication between the mainland and Taiwan, commercial streets with theme of Taiwan culture began to be built in Fuzhou, Xiamen, Nanning, Guangzhou and other cities.
