Memoirs on Taipei
Not too long ago, the valley of the Danshui River was home to rice and vegetable farmers. Today it's the site of Taipei, the bustling centre of Taiwan's commerce, government and culture. The capital is frenetic, energetic and busy, busy, busy. Most of the city is barely a century old, but oh how it's made up for lost time!
Let us follow the National Taiwan University’s digital archives collections. Share their photo memoirs on Taipei. Explore the unrevealed side of Taipei and the rich natural/cultural resources.
