TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—Taipei’s City Office of Commerce (TCOOC) is organizing a mini travel program consisting of 10 sessions on weekend afternoons for those who wish to savor the old atmosphere as well as the new flavors of Datong District.

The program was designed to familiarize the public with the eight commercial districts and Iron Street, Wood Street, as well as Zhongshan Book Street in Datong District. The program will take place between May 20 and October 28. The eight commercial districts are Dalongdong, Yuanshan, Daqiaotou Yansan, Dadaocheng, Ningxia, Chaoyang Garment Accessories Street, Station Rear, and Huayin.

The program will feature a total of five itineraries, each consisting of two sessions.
