Yingge – New Taipei City


Life in Taiwan / Monday, August 13th, 2018

My wife and I visited the Yingge District¬†over the weekend. It’s on the outskirts of Taipei City, and is well-known for it’s beautiful ceramics.

There’s row after row of shops selling hundreds of clay teapots and cups. When it comes to buying an exquisite teapot or tea set, this is the place to come.

Unfortunately, like many small towns in Taiwan, it’s slowly but surely losing its identity as they replace the character-full old with the monotonous new. I hope they manage to save it.

This photo I took sums it up pretty nicely, I feel.
