Anping tree house (安平樹屋) is actually an abandoned building being "conquered" vastly by roots of living banyan trees. It is a typical example of nature overpowering human creation. A great spectacle indeed for this historical building which was erected by Tait & Company in 1867...More

It is quite a surprise to see these old house walls totally engulfed by the roots of the banyan tree. Visitors can also walk out in a raised walkway to see the river, the mangroves and the distant view of Tainan.

Really interesting to see how much the tree has taken over the house. Walking among the branches gives amazing views. If you are in Tainan this is a must see.

It is what the title says. It is an interesting scene to see but less attractive than the Zeelandia fort and the street market behind it. If you are in Anping, it is worthwhile to spend half an hour in it.

Eternal Golden Castle leave behind them the traces of
