Hakka Cultural Center
Located near the Xindian River community at the intersection of Dingzhou Road and Shida Road, the Hakka Cultural Center also happens to be centrally located between Taipei City and New Taipei City. A red brick building with white, layered stone walls, the structure is representative of Hakka frugality. The four-story building contains a lobby, interactive multimedia facilities, gift shop, exhibitions, Hakka language certification station, and multi-function classrooms. The center is a joint collaboration between industry, government, academia, civic groups, and art and culture troupes. With a foundation of culture, education, technology, industry, and art, there is no other Hakka center like this anywhere else.

As the Hakka population lacks a definitive hometown, every individual Hakka community is like its own Hakka village. As communities appear and disappear, this center is a constant place where people can gather and socialize.
