There is an old saying in Taiwan: “To know Taiwan, you must begin with Tainan.” Tainan was the old capital city of Taiwan and has many famous historical sites and ruins. Chihkan Tower and the ancient Anping Castle are both captivating architectural antiquities from the time of Koxinga that have become part of the city's wonderful character. Of course, some people will be drawn here to track down a taste of Tainan's idol dramas, go to the night market for a big dinner, or to experience a bit of the artistic and literary flavor. You could easily devote a day to exploring the area on your own on foot and experiencing the friendliness of the people. It's very easy to fall in love with Tainan.
Noel LauBuilt by the Dutch East India Company from 1624 to 1634, Anping Old Fort, a.k.a. Fort Zeelandia was the focal point of early settlements for both the Dutch and Chinese. There's a simple nice museum inside the fort today, displaying artifacts from the past, and relating stories of Formosa (Taiwan) and Anping. On weekends, there are free concert in the ground of the fort. It's also nice to sit in the quiet courtyard and garden to escape from the hustle and noise of the market street.

M38***13Taiwan's local diet is light, so they think good food, not necessarily for you. I bought two popular corn in Hualien's night market, equivalent to less than 20 yuan a piece, taste is very general, I honestly 5 yuan a cost. There is also the water that the aborigines soaked, the potholes are too bad and expensive. At the Tainan Garden Night Market, the steak noodles are really delicious, and they are very cheap, one Taiwanese dollar.
Stephen BugnoThis is Taiwan's oldest and most revered Confucian shrine. It was first built in 1666, but was rebuilt many times. The gorgeous architecture and colorful facades make for an atmospheric stroll on a quiet morning. One of the city's highlights.
Tainan is very unique place. You can see more traditional and local buildings and shops than Taipei. I would recommend here if you have a chance.

#k-pop Style Korean BBQ is located at the back of Mitsukoshi Mall, Tainan City. Foods are delicious and clean. The price is cheap and it’s unlimited. Feels like you were in Korea.😉
Qiguyan Mountain, or Qigu Salt Mountain, is a curious Taiwanese tourist attraction. The large mound of salt looks like snow at first. Basically the thing to do here is walk up and onto the massive salt pile and then pose for a bunch of photos. Be careful with delicate clothing though because the salt gets all over everything. #taiwan

In the small town of Tainan, the first stop of the history of Chikan Building
to Tainan, we went to Chikanlou.
In the past, the Dutch built the "Puman's City" here. The Han people referred to it as "Red House", "Panza House" or "Red House". (1655 AD) was roughly completed. This is the initial red-inlaid building.
At that time, the city tower, facing the mountains and the sea, and a few miles away from the hot blue city, facing each other, each other is the corner, the console Jiangnaihai.
Red Inlay Building For more than 300 years, after the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the Qing Dynasty, and even the changes in the Japanese occupation period, living is the epitome of a Taiwanese history, and the best witness to the historical changes in Tainan since the 17th century. And its architecture has changed from a Dutch-style castle to a silhouette of Chinese architecture. From the temples to the double buildings and standing together; there are filling the city base, but also standing on the forest; there are fans who open the entrance, but also the reality of the cave. After the recovery of Taiwan, the Red Inlay Building was used as the Tainan City Historical Museum.
It is said that there are more than three in Tainan: there are many ancient buildings, many foods, and many temples.
Chikan House is an ancient city with free explanations. The interpreter we met was not bad, not like the old-fashioned explanation.
Chikan Building is small, but there are many historical stories. The architecture inside is also very particular. When you come to the ancient city, you will have a deeper understanding of the city.
You can buy a ticket at the entrance of Chikanlou. You can also choose a ticket or a package. In addition to the Chikan Building, you can also include tickets for a total of six Tainan attractions, such as Anping Castle and Anping Tree House. For the price of three single tickets, if you want to go to three or more attractions, you can choose to buy a package. Keeping the ticket in the collection is also very good~
Address: at the intersection of Chikan Street and Minzu Road, Tainan City
