The Red House

The museum (free admission) called “The Red Playhouse” or “Red Theater” (紅樓劇院). It was built in 1908. It’s known to be as the “market octagon” .

The first floor now was converted into a small café and shops with some revitalized relics of the island.

All those red lanterns on the outside make it so pretty. They almost look like pearls!
