I visited this street at night according to the advise from trip advisor. It was a disapoitment. There are not much and nothing special about this street excepting the old houses. This street has a lot of restaurant and drinking bar. Should it be still considered as old street?!

I went to this street a couple times and each time it feels different. During the day time, there was rarely any people, and the shops were not opened. However, it is only during the morning, you could actually take a clear photo of the street with no crowd. And during the night, is when all the shops at this... More

I have Shennong Street on my list of things to do again if I go back to Tainan, but if I do it again it will 100% be at night. We walked down the street around 1 PM, looking for food since it was near our hotel. Big mistake. There really isn't anything to do until night time. We did... More

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.
