I am a sucker for history, and this was probably one of the highlights of my day in Tainan. This old pair of towers is home to gorgeous structures that have great views of the city. The best part? Your ticket gives you access to...More
Chihkan Tower is certainly the most famous touristic site in Tainan. This fort was originally built by Dutch, but the in the course of time it was transformed to Chinese pavilions as we can see today. The surrounding is a very pleasant park. The 50...More
There isn't much to explore here really but the information is there and detailed to see. They have quite a few exhibits inside the temple and the pavilion. I got the tourist pass to see 4 sights for a lower price so the cost wasn't...More
I very much enjoyed visiting here. I appreciated that it was open in the evening. While the structure is not especially impressive, it features a garden with koi pond, and is different than other temples. There are also a few remains of the older Fort...More
Although we found it quite interesting,i would say that I would love to see more informations about the hystory of the temple.
I admired the art and how colorful and how well kept it is .

The West Central District is the most populous and the busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the district, and the long-standing history results in a variety of street food. In addition to that, this district also has the highest number of temples. This is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example, Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan
Literature, Confucius Temple, Chihkan Tower (formerly Fort Provintia), Sacrificial Rites Martial Temple, Tainan Grand Mazu (name of a goddess) Temple, etc. Recently, the tourism in Tainan has laid emphasis on alleys and lanes. Examples include Fujhong Street specialising in creative handicrafts, as-you-stroll desserts on Jhengsing Street, Shennong Street lined with hundred-year-old ancient houses, Sinyi Street on which the old city gate stands, Sinmei Street where old and new cultures fuse together, and Guohua Street and Baoan Raod famous for all the savoury food. All the traditional and delicious food and flavours are about to burst in your mouth. The North District, on the other hand, is a quiet secret hideaway. Lane 321 on Gongyuan Road used to be a Japanese soldiers’ dormitory. Now a few artists have set up their studios here. There are diversified art styles in each old Japanese-style house. The Garden Night Market on Haian Road is one of the famous night markets in both Tainan and Taiwan, and was the top 12 Facebook check-in location worldwide in 2013.
