Is the dull rain of Taipei, Taiwan getting you down? Looking for some creative inspiration off the beaten path? Take a short walk (even if it’s drizzling) through the Treasure Hill Artist Village: explore the modernly concrete alleyways, sketch the street bunny graffiti art, and create whimsical photo-op scenes in an open air room with human size fortune cookie sculptures.
