Tainan, Taiwan (台南台灣) is a beautiful city in southern Taiwan. It one of Taiwan’s favorites as it has a nice climate and warm people. It’s also full of historical sites.
It’s the only one of Taiwan’s big cities that I’ve never visited so I thought I make a visit during the Chinese New Year break. I only spent about a day there but got to see most of the major sites and thought I’d share a few of the pictures:
Taiwan was once governed by the Dutch. They built several forts in Tainan to help control the occasional uprisings. Chihkan Tower 赤崁樓 (Fort Provintia) was built in 1653 and traded rulers hands several times over the centuries before being recently restored.
