Kaohsiung¡¦s Old Bamboo Street

WuFu 4th Road, YenCheng

ADD YOUR RATING & REVIEW | VIEW VISITOR RATINGS & REVIEWS

       At the western end of WuFu 4th Road, between DaAn Street and the railroad tracks, eight bamboo stores are all that remains of a dwindling trade. Skills formerly passed down from father to son are being forgotten, but it is still possible to see people making traditional items, such as large bamboo disks used during marriage rites to shade the bride¡¦s head. Grass hats and raincoats, used by Taiwanese farmers until the 1950s, are sold here. These obsolete garments are now popular household decorations. But they don't come cheap--one store asks NT$350 for a hat, and NT$1200 for a raincoat.
