Songshan Cultural and Creative Park

Songshan Cultural and Creative Park

The 6.6-hectares Songshan Cultural and Creative Park in Taipei’s Xinyi District was completed in 1937 as the Songshan Tobacco Factory, which was one of the seed companies of a monopoly system mandated by the Taiwan Governor-General Office. In 2001, the Taipei City Government named the tobacco factory the city’s 99th historic site and converted it into a park comprising city-designated historic sites, historic structures and architectural highlights. For more efficient reuse of space, the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park was built on the historic site as a production base for designers and cultural & creative businesses, as well as a venue for performances and exhibitions.

STOP 7
MRT : Xiangshan Station
Xiangshan Hiking Trail

Xiangshan Hiking Trail

Most tourists visiting Taiwan come to the capital, Taipei, even if only briefly, and most of these want a look at the country’s tallest – and currently the world’s 8th tallest – building (508m). A challenge for photographers without wide-angle lenses is how to get the whole structure into one frame when standing close to it. A solution is getting down on the ground and shooting upwards. You will also get a more interesting angle this way. A good spot to shoot the tower is right at its base. Another option is hiking up Elephant Mountain, to the tower’s immediate south, recommended especially in the late afternoon, when you’ll get breathtaking sunset shots.
