Living in Xiuchuan, one can experience the nostalgic atmosphere and savor the slow-paced daily life of the Sanxia old town.

Xiuchuan Street was a bustling commercial street during the Qing Dynasty over a hundred years ago. The old dock of Sanxia River was located here, attracting numerous merchant ships and offering breathtaking scenery. The Zaisu Temple, situated along the riverbank, served as the earliest religious center in Sanxia. The street was the hub for the residents' daily needs, gradually giving rise to a cluster of traditional buildings. During the Japanese colonial period, commercial activities shifted to the current Sanxia Old Street, but Xiuchuan Street and its surroundings still exude a strong sense of ordinary life, making it one of Taiwan's most historically significant old streets.

To recreate the charm of the old houses, Gan Le Cultural and Creative uses a minimalist and gentle approach to reinterpret a heritage building into a standalone vacation rental called "Xiuchuan Residence." The interior design preserves the flavor of the old house, with nostalgic floor tiles and warm yellow pendant lights that naturally exude an indescribable sense of familial intimacy. We hope that during your short stay here, you can experience the nostalgia of the past in this modern setting and create delightful memories with your family, friends, colleagues, or classmates.



#Open Living Room

The space is expansive and open, with a wooden dining table in a natural wood tone and modern-style window frames. The interplay between vintage green brick walls of different shades and leather-accented wooden dining chairs creates a distinctive atmosphere, blending the old and the new. The large TV on the wall, paired with a TV box, provides a leisurely setting for dining, chatting, and watching TV together. If there's a sports game broadcast happening, let's cheer passionately and raise our glasses in celebration!


#Open Kitchen

Within a 1-minute walk, you'll reach the nearby traditional morning market. Amidst the lively and welcoming roadside stalls, you can buy fresh produce, fish, and other ingredients. In the spacious kitchen, you can chat while picking vegetables and prepare a meal together, followed by a relaxed dining experience. It's amazing!

*Instead of using an open flame, an induction cooker is used, featuring a child safety lock design for added safety and peace of mind during cooking.

*An air fryer oven is available for heating up the baked goods we prepared or the food you bought.

*The large-capacity refrigerator is well-suited for accommodating the cooking needs of multiple people, ensuring that there is no concern about running out of space for storing ample food or ingredients.

#The Leisurely Daily Life in the Town

Walking along the winding and narrow Shuichuan Street, you can get close to the Sanxia River with just a few steps. Feeling the gentle breeze, you can imagine the bustling scenes of the past during the Qing Dynasty or the Japanese colonial period, where there were crowded voices by the wharf, bustling with the transportation and trade of local products such as tea leaves, indigo-dyed fabrics, camphor oil, and more.

Did you know that the nighttime version of Sanxia Old Street carries a mysterious sense of transcending time and space? The continuous red brick arches connect one street house to another, with each beam, pillar, and tile representing the prosperity of that era. After dinner, just a 2-minute walk away, you can experience the beautifully illuminated old street with a great atmosphere. You will also pass by the well-known landmark of Sanxia, the "Qingshui Ancestral Temple," and walk on Changfu Bridge in front of the temple square to enjoy the expansive night view of the riverbank. Count how many fish-viewing pavilions there are on the bridge. If you're lucky enough to catch the period when the ladies are dancing in the square, why not join in and move to the rhythm together?

Although the former glory of Shuichuan Street has faded, back in the day, the main modes of transportation for residents were sedan chairs or walking. Considering the need for home insulation, the streets are not spacious and still maintain the width from the Qing Dynasty. If you observe carefully, you will notice that the red brick pavement on the ground is composed of three horizontal bricks forming the character "三" (San) and three vertical bricks forming the character "川" (Xiu Chuan), indicating that this place is Sanxia Shuichuan—a truly rustic and understated presence!

On the curving red brick path, there are a few shops that stubbornly maintain their traditional style, such as noodle shops, barbershops, herbal medicine stores, and goldsmith shops. After breakfast, personally visit these small shops that may gradually disappear in the future and leave behind precious records for them.
