Walking into Qiaonan Old Street (橋南老街), tourists will be met with the familiar sounds of the Quanli Blacksmith Shop (泉利打鐵舖), a sound that has rung out consistently for over a century. Once the main street in Yanshui(鹽水) and a gathering place for merchants, Qiaonan Old Street gradually declined after the Yuejin Harbor (月津港) silted up, and the clamor of the bustling port is no longer heard. All that remains to tell the story of Qiaonan is a row of old buildings; tourists can search for hidden treasures in the Qiaonan Historical Relic Store (橋南歷史文物館), or sit and reminisce in the Qiaonan Coffee House (橋南咖啡屋).
In the Old Street's early days, people would come from far and wide to visit the Beidi Temple (北帝殿) and make offerings to Xuan Tian Shang Di (玄天上帝), the Dark Warrior God, and the Temple still attracts many worshippers to this day. Tourists may explore the surrounding area, and eat their fill at a range of eateries serving local delicacies such as Yanshui noodles, pork rice, and bean strip soup. After the meal, having a red bean milk ice or watermelon lemonade at the Yin Feng Ice and Fruit Shop (銀鋒冰菓室) would make the perfect dessert.
