Visiting Tainan City and Tainan Country? If you have some time to explore, there are quite a few interesting things for you to see. Following is a list of suggested things to do with an outline for a visit itinerary.
A word of caution before I begin – while there’s alot to do I would say Tainan is not for everyone and not your typical world-class tourist destination. I remember an American professor who summarized his Tainan City visit saying "they took me to the best Tainan City historic attractions and it took exactly 10 minutes for me to go through the whole thing". But, if you’re passionate about Taiwan’s history and local temple culture – then you’ll enjoy Tainan alot, as I have.
Walking tour – Southern Gate, Wufei Temple, Koxinga Cheng Gong Shrine, Chikan Towers (more about Koxinga Shrine)
- Eternal Golden Castle, Old Merchant’s House, Tree House.
- Dutch Fort Zeelnadia, Golden Beach, Anping beach, weekend market
- (More about Eternal Golden Castle, Anping Beach and Anping Tree House)
Tainan City Temple celebrations
If you’re into temple celebrations, Tainan’s definitely a crazy place during the summer. Try to visit around the local Daoist holidays, you won’t believe your eyes.
