Nanzhuang Visitor Center, adjacent to Nanzhuang Old Street, is the first visitor center affiliated to the Tourism Bureau to be labeled as a green building. The design of this visitor center also incorporates Hakka and aboriginal elements. It provides travel information and brochures, answers visitors’ queries, introduces tourist attractions, provides multi-media video guides, and showcases traditional Hakka and indigenous clothes and implements.
The path next to the visitor center and Nanzhuang market leads you to the renowned “Kangji Suspension Bridge” in Nanzhuang. The 154-meter long suspension bridge connects Nanzhuang Old Street and Nanjiang Old Street. Standing on the middle of the bridge, the broad and magnificent mountains unfold in front of you and it refreshes your spirits along with wind among the mountain. Shisanjian Old Street, on the other side of the bridge, was once the busiest area in the 1940s and 1950s. However, with the decline of mining industry, fewer people came to this area. Recently, with the government’s promotion, more young people come back to start their own business incorporating cultural and creative elements.
