According to historical materials, the area used to house over 100 craft stores for carving, bamboo ware making, painting mounting, paper binding, wine making, iron striking, tofu making and more.

There were also barber shops, tailor shops, traditional Chinese medicine clinics and pharmacies.

Nowadays, traditional craft and cultural shops can still be found on the street, harkening back to the old days.

For people interested in Hakka culture, Diantou Street is a must-visit, with well-preserved Hakka residential houses from the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911) dotting the area.
