The Basics

Most international visitors to Taipei never make it to Treasure Hill, which is a shame. Visitors are free to wander through the village and pop in to the open studios to see completed works and works in progress. From time to time, Treasure Hill also hosts exhibitions, workshops, and other educational programs. A centuries-old Buddhist temple dedicated to the goddess Guanyin stands on the hillside and is worth a visit for those in the neighborhood.
