Tourist destinations along Provincial Highway 3

Li Teng-fang Mansion
Established in around 1864, this is the residence of the prestigious Li family of Daxi. Now a national historic site, it is open to the public.

The Li family came from Zhao’an of Fujian, China. This Hakka family acquired wealth through trade, and built this classic Zhao’an Hakka house. The mansion is refined and elegant, and its architectural layout and décor are truly unique. The well-preserved house is ideal for people to learn about traditional Hakka architecture and feel the charm of the past.
Daxi Old Street
Daxi used to take pride in its highly-developed waterway transport system. Boats could go all the way to Taipei. Thus, other than local camphor and tea manufacturers, many foreign companies also opened branches in Daxi. Trade was highly prosperous for some time. Starting in the 1910s, as roads were expanded, local business owners invested much into refurbishing their stores. The street became half Baroque, half Minnan, and this grew into a fashion. However, as the waterways got seriously silted, trade in Daxi subsided. In recent years, Daxi Old Street has become popular again, for it retains the beautiful architecture and aura of the past.
