Nicely restored
Jun 2019
The city walls are well preserved and have been nicely restored. It is historic as it is from the Qing dynasty. It is not a very big area but worth a quick stop and a few pictures.

Just remnants of old structures, not much more
Dec 2019
There are remnants of the old Hengchun Town but you don’t really get the atmosphere of an old town (unlike Takayama in Japan); there are many nice food outlets and cafe though.

HENGCHUN OLD TOWN, HENCHUN, TAIWAN
Sep 2019
This is again being touted as one of the MUST see sights in South TAIWAN. Lots of publicity and write up on this OLD TOWN, and most tourists took the trouble to visit this highly Recommended Sight !!! There are many public transports going through this Old Town, The Main Bus Depot takes tourists farther down the South to KENTING and even further. The town is quite a disappointment ' probably too much expectations in duced by the PROMOTINAL LITERATURES !!! The Old Street houses many RENOVATED Buildings, with lots of restaurants and shops as can be found in many other parts of TAIWAN. nothing exceptional !!! Visit it for the sake of have been !!!

Interesting Ancient Town
Nov 2019
Passed by Hengchun on my way to Kenting Main Street by bus 9188. Town is the main centre for Kenting National Park with lots of shops and eating places. Dropped by the Visitors Centre located next to the Bus Terminal. Had maps in English and Ms Hsu Si-Han was very helpful & spoke English well. She recommended I walk to the four old gates(east, north, west & south) of the town which was all about 10mins away. They were all well preserved & you could even climb up the gates to have a nice view of the town.

Cool to walk around
Jul 2019 • Couples
The old town is certainly worth walking around. The city has an historic city gate in the centre of a roundabout and also other city gates and ruins reflective of their heritage. Grab a map and walk around because you can find plenty of interesting sites, shops and eateries.

Hengchun old town is very underrated - there are some great little restaurants here, some cool sites and a real relaxed atmosphere. You can spend a nice afternoon strolling around here

Quiet Place in Winter
Dec 2018 • Family
If you like a place for less people during winter, this is a good place to go. Not many people around when I traveled there.

Charming area
Oct 2018 • Solo
It’s nice to walk around and either shop or drop in to one of the many eateries there. There are quite a few duck restaurants, apparently the town is famous for it’s duck!
A very charming place to visit, you can see the old walls and gates from the old times. Interesting aborigine art is everywhere, and quite nice to buy!
