Treasure Hill 寶藏巖, Taipei….

Only 5 minutes walk from Taiwan’s most famous university, NTU (National Taiwan University), and its busy student shopping area and night markets, is this rather amazing village stuck on the side of a hill, Treasure Hill in fact….

After the war, lots of KMT soldiers were released from the Chinese military and settled here, building their own homes with rocks from the river, many still live here, plus artists in an artist village…

This month, the village is hosting an art festival, hence lots of weird, wacky and wonderful objects!

Fascinating place, well worth a visit!
