TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Toucheng Old Street (頭城老街) in Yilan County has regained its glamour with a number of Instagrammable spots thanks to a renaissance project by the local government.

Boasting a thriving past as an economic hub back in the Qing Dynasty, Toucheng Township in the northeastern municipality of Taiwan is undergoing a transformation involving the implementation of 3D wall murals on old buildings, installation of calligraphy inscription tablets featuring writings by renowned local calligraphers, and more.

The project, sponsored by the central government with a budget of NT$9 million, has been 70 percent implemented and is slated for completion in early December, according to Toucheng Township Office.
