Hukou is an interesting little town full of stories. These old buildings contain the history of the town and its old glory days , when the place was lively with people. A walk through Hukou Old Street immediately brings up old nostalgic memories. The elegant townhouses from the old era lining the street makes the place feel like a time capsule. Back then, as the majority of the elongated shophouses, have a depth of several courtyards, this design was meant to separate shops and living spaces.

There aren't too many of these traditional elongated shops left in Taiwan. Hukou Old Street is one of the most well preserved places, but as industries grow, the few streets that contain these types of shops may one day be taken down.

Aside from these few streets, on the outskirts there are San Yuan Gong, Old Hukou Church, and Golden Lion Trails. These are all great destinations to visit, and every little trip can take you closer to Hukou's history.
