展區地圖:Qing Dynasty Commercial Cities and Towns
The ports along the west coast of Taiwan were often bustling towns during the Qing Dynasty, where guilds, retail stores and merchant houses increasingly flourished. When commodities were shipped to the ports along the coast of China, the guilds coordinated the logistics and handed the goods over to wholesalers, retailers and peddlers to be sold to consumers. Four port cities from south to north Taiwan, including Fucheng (modern day Tainan), Lugang, Mengjia (modern day Wanhua, Taipei) and Dadaocheng represent different stages of commercial development in Taiwan during the Qing Dynasty.
