很適合牽著一個人散步的地方。建議黃昏/入夜以後過去。兩旁大都是台南傳統的老建築。很適合拍照。街尾有一兩家賣飲料/輕食的店。不適合太多人聚集,但是要談心與沈澱,再好不過。 A good place for holding someone dear. After sun set or after dinner is advised. Most biuldings on this street are belongs to old Tainan era. A good place for one or two friends, not that good for lareg group gathering.

Just a short street hided in Central Tainan fulls of old style life. Some bars and interesting events make tourists surprised as walking along. Recommended TAIKOO 101 cafe shop is a must visited spot to have a wonderful afternoon tea. Sure to relax and have fun there.

I think we were there at the wrong time of the day because there wasn't really anything open... We couldn't see any place to eat or even buy something to drink. There's plenty of better things to do in Tainan.

If you have a lot of spare time or really want to soak into the old Tainan city feeling, it's worth to be visited. Better at night and nowadays, they put the lanterns for more decorations. It's beautiful though.

A quaint little side street that retains how old Tainan looks like. It has some F&B outlets, a clan association etc. Worth going twice, once in the day and at night to soak in the different atmosphere. Part of the street seems restored with lights installed specifically to enhance the night experience, kind of 'touriisty fake', But nevertheless worth a... More

Very nice walk. Good views of architecture. The Wind God temple is also nearby and worth a look. Says I need to add more. Hmmmmm. There are also some nice eateries on the main street in front of this location.

Love the art flavours of the street, the F&B experience was amazing, i wished i had more nights to try more things there. I would revisit in a heartbeat. Love the yakitori with Taiwan Beer

Come and see what Tainan used to look like on this preserved street. It is just a small street but there are lots of vendors and cafes. I recommend having a drink on the second floor of Taikoo, near the end of the street, next to Joes.

夕食後、散歩がてら歩いていくと、そこは神農街。古い雰囲気を残しつつ、若手の芸術家の方のアトリエを取り入れるなど、すてきな街です。台南に行ったら一度訪れあれ。忘れかけていた何かを思い出させてくれた気がします。 When you walk given the opportunity of the walk after supper, it is the 神農街 town there. It is a great town, such as taking in young artists' atelier, leaving an old atmosphere. When you go to Tainan, visit once and be. I feel that something that is being forgotten was made to remember.

Maybe this street is hopping at night but during the day it was simply a boring little lane of closed doors and scooter traffic. The nearby Water Fairy Temple Market was simply a nice market but not worth an extra effort, and the Medicine Lord Temple at the end of Shennong St was equally ordinary, although it had a decent...
