Madou Old Street(麻豆老街)
In addition to the ornate old buildings, the “Pickle Culture Park” tucked away in the back alleys of Madou Old Street is also worth a visit. Madou is famous for pomelo now but it used to be a major pickle producer. The cluster of pickle makers in the back streets became known as “Pickle Lane.” Large wooden barrels were used for making the pickles. The barrels were an impressive sight as they were two meters in height and each held 10,000 kg of pickles. The pickles industry is a dying trade in Madou. The distinctive wooden pickle barrels, however, were preserved and moved to Peiwen Elementary School and turned into the Pickle Cultural Park.
