In the old days, the Tamsui River was navigable all the way inland to Daxi. The dock was where the old Heping Road runs today, and from Ching Dynasty times this has been the town's business commercial area. In addition to the traditional wooden furniture shops, on the Old Street today you can still see the old professions: the making of Daxi's famous dried bean curd, iron mongering, and stone working. The street was formed during the period of Japanese occupation (1895-1945.) The shops are faced in Japanese baroque style with washed stone and are beautifully decorated with intricate carvings of birds, animals, flowers, and plants. The name of the establishment is written above the entrance.
