There is no castle, golden or eternal! If they didn’t charge 50$ for entrance would be kinda ok for sitting on the bench... You can do nothing somewhere closer to town instead!

It is really just brick wals with a surrounding moat. Even the cannons are replicas as the originals were sold or disappeared. Not worth the trip unless you are close by.

There’s quite a no of museum at Tainan. Visited this 3rd museum on the same day. Tickets at TWD50 for adults and TWD25 for students. So pls bring along your student ID for verification purpose. Happy museum hopping!

This attraction is far from others. There really is nothing to see apart from the gate and open former grounds. Do not waste your time coming here.

As the Tainan City Bus to Anping district stops here, I thought I should not give this place a miss. The adult ticket costs only 50 NTD (students and elderly get 50% off at 25 NTD!) and you can take pictures at the grand entrance...More

The name of this place may sounds exotic, but in reality it's just a fancy name for an old fortress built in the late Qing Dynasty (c. 1870's). The castle gate is an arched opening accessed by a bridge which in those days, could be...More

Its an old fort that is surrounded with a moat. We saw some paddle boats for rent, but the scenery around was not that exciting. I was hoping for a museum inside the fort that housed items related to the fort but there was none....More
