Taiwan Obsessed

A Travel Guide to Tainan, Taiwan’s Original Capital

A traveler's guide to Tainan city in Taiwan

Tainan City (臺南 or “Taiwan South”) is in many ways the best major city in Taiwan for experiencing Taiwanese history and culture.

For over 200 years, Tainan was the capital of Taiwan. To this day, it retains a traditional vibe , with some of the country’s most important historical attractions and temples. Many locals also consider it the food capital of Taiwan. Outside of the city center, there are some quirkier attractions, like Cigu Salt Mountain , Guanziling Mud Hot Springs , and Sicao Green Tunnel .

In this article, I’ll cover everything you need to know for visiting Tainan, including the most famous and lesser-known sights, how to reach them, where to stay, how to plan your itinerary, and most important, what to eat in Tainan.

If you prefer a listicle, see these 70+ things to do in Tainan .

Tainan History

Red tablets with Chinese characters inside the Confucius Temple in Tainan

Tainan’s history is so rich that it has been dubbed the Phoenix City (鳳凰城), after the mythological bird known to kill itself and rise from the ashes time and time again.

Tainan is the part of Taiwan where both Chinese and European settlers first arrived . The name Taiwan may come from the Taivoan aboriginal people who lived there at the time, or it may have come from the name “Tayouan” used by another local tribe, the Siraya.

Whichever theory is true , the word Taiwan eventually came to be used for the whole island, and the variation “Tainan” came to be used for that area. The Chinese chose the characters 臺南 or “Taiwan South”, which differentiates it from Taipei (Taiwan North), Taichung (Taiwan Middle), and Taitung (Taiwan East).

In 1622, the Dutch established Fort Zeelandia in today’s Anping District of Tainan. Dutch presence only lasted until Koxinga , a half-Chinese, half-Japanese pirate and Ming Dynasty loyalist, showed up and kicked them out.

While Koxinga’s Kingtom of Tungning based in Tainan only lasted 22 years, it would have long-lasting impact. Even today Koxinga is revered in Tainan and there are several temples dedicated to him. (As a fun side note, my wife’s family has the same surname as Koxinga (鄭), and they come from the Chiayi -Tainan area, so my father-in-law often jokes that he is a descendent of the pirate king.)

Koxinga’s rule ended dramatically when the Qing Dynasty took over – one Ming prince and his five concubines famously committed suicide in what is now the Grand Matsu temple in Tainan.

An abandoned warehouse filled with tree roots and vines

The following centuries saw waves of Chinese migration to Tainan and Taiwan. In 1858, the Qing rulers opened up Anping Port to foreign trade. Opium flowed in, while tea, sugar, and camphor flowed out. Today’s hot attraction, Anping Treehouse , is in one of those trading houses.

Tainan also became known for its salt production , with several salt-related attractions remaining today. This would last until 2002, when cheap salt flooded in after Taiwan joined the WTO.

When Taiwan was opened for trade, Taipei developed as the preferred port, thus the capital was moved from Tainan to Taichung (briefly) then to Taipei in 1887.

The Japanese kept Taipei as the capital during their colonial rule of Taiwan (1895 to 1945), but they also transformed Tainan. Several great examples remain and are tourist attractions, including Hayashi Department Store .

After the Japanese left and KMT arrived, Kaohsiung overtook Tainan as the main financial center in Southern Taiwan. Tainan of today is a medium-sized city with refreshingly few skyrises.

In 2010, Tainan City was merged with Tainan County (just like Taoyuan , Taichung, and Kaohsiung), so the whole area is now called Tainan City.

Tainan’s City Center is rich in historic temples and buildings. Anping District in the city’s northwest is known for Anping Fort (Fort Zeelandia), Aping Treehouse, and Anping Old Street.

Getting to Tainan

A Tainan (台南) sign on the train station platform

Tainan is well connected to other major cities on the west coast of Taiwan. The closest international airport is in Kaohsiung – Tainan Airport only has domestic flights. Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) is 1.5 hours away by High Speed Rail.

If you come to Tainan by regular (TRA) train , you’ll fin Tainan Station is conveniently located in the city center, where many old temples and sights are. If you want to visit Anping District, you’ll need to take a bus from there (45 minutes). Travel time from Taipei to Tainan by TRA is 3 to 4.5 hours. Find out how to buy tickets for these trains here .

Tainan’s High Speed Rail (HSR) station is located here , southeast of the city center. If you come by HSR , the travel time from Taipei will be faster (1 hr 45 min). Here’s how to book HSR tickets .

But then you’ll need to take a taxi (20 min) or local train (20 min) from Shalun Station on the TRA (regular train) line to the city center. Shalun station is connected to the HSR station. Buy discount HSR tickets here .

Kaohsiung is even closer, at only 30 min to 1 hr (TRA) or 15 minutes (HSR). Just keep in mind that Kaohsiung’s HSR station is also not in the city center of Kaohsiung but in Zuoying district.

There’s no MRT in Tainan. Make use of bicycles (Tainan has YouBike but also their own local T Bike system), taxis, or local buses to get around, as the city’s main attractions are rather spread out. You can see quite a bit on foot, but the occasional bus or taxi will help. GoogleMaps is fairly reliable for bus times and stop locations.

To visit places outside of the city center, you’re going to need more time. Buses tend to be slow. Consider hiring a driver for a day if you want to visit multiple places outside the city. Guanziling Mud Hot Spring is easier to reach from Chiayi city than from Tainan’s city center, even though it”s technically in Tainan.

Where to Stay in Tainan

For the Tainan city center, Huzi Room Guesthouse (see on Booking / Agoda ) is conveniently located near Tainan Station. For a hostel, U.I.J. Hostel (see on Booking / Agoda ) is one of the nicest ones I’ve ever seen.

For visitors with kids, Hotel Cozzi (see on Booking / Agoda ) is excellent, with family-themed rooms plus indoor and outdoor play areas.

If you decide to spend a night in Anping District , for visiting the many attractions there, I highly recommend Anping Inn Here (see on Booking / Agoda ).

If you want to spend a night in a hot spring hotel, the best one at Guanziling Mud Hot Spring is King’s Garden Villa (景大渡假莊園) (see on Klook / Agoda ). Read more about it in the “Things to Do” section below.

Top Things to Do in Tainan

I’ll separate the below into the top attractions in Tainan City Center, Anping District, and Outside the City Center. You can see even more pictures and details about each of these places in my guide to the best things to do in Tainan .

Tainan City Center

The Tainan city center, especially the area west of Tainan train station, is rich in historical attractions. There’s a long list of temples in Tainan , several of which are the oldest or most important of their kind in Taiwan.

A very detailed and intricate altar inside a temple in tainan

The Confucius Temple stands out as the most popular, but others worth visiting are Koxinga’s Shrine (延平郡王祠), Lady Linshui’s Temple (臨水夫人媽廟), Wufei (五妃廟 or Five Concubines Temple), Grand Matsu Temple (臺南祀典大天后宮), and God of War Temple (臺灣祀典武廟).

Hayashi Department Store (台南林百貨) is a really cool Japanese-era art deco department store where the elite used to go shopping. Today its shops still sell luxury teas, crafts, jewelry, souvenirs, and so on. Don’t miss the original Shinto shrine on the roof!

Other interesting attractions in the Tainan city center include Chikhan Tower (赤崁樓), Tainan Park (臺南公園), Tainan Wu Garden (吳園藝文中心), Blueprint Culture & Creative Park (藍晒圖文創園區), Tainan Art Museum 1 & 2 (臺南市美術館1館/2館) and Black Bridge Sausage Museum (黑橋牌香腸博物館).

For atmospheric streets, check out Snail Alley (蝸牛巷) and Shennong Street (神農街). You can even rent a qipao to take photos on Shennong Street at night, when the lanterns are lit (see more places to rent qipaos in Taiwan here ).

A narrow lane with red lanterns in Tainan

For visitors with kids, or anyone who feels too hot, cool off in The Spring (河樂廣場), when it has water in it, that is! It’s closed on Tuesdays, during water shortages, or when they decide it isn’t hot enough out.

321 Art Alley Settlement (321巷 藝術聚落), once a very cool attraction, is unfortunately closed for at least a few years.

Anping District

Anping is the area originally settled by the Dutch. Although it may not feel like it, it’s actually an island formed by Anping Canal (read about other fascinating Taiwanese islands here ).

Anping can be reached in about 45 minutes by bus from Tainan city center. It is a very traditional area with some fascinating attractions.

Looking up at the stairs of an old Dutch fort in Tainan with trees on the sides

Anping Fort (安平古堡 or Fort Zeelandia) is the top attraction. Right next to it, Anping Old Street (安平老街, see my guide) is a very traditional street specializing in prawn crackers and dried fruits.

Also right next to the fort, Anping Matsu Temple (安平開台天后宮 or Anping Kaitai Tianhou Temple) is truly impressive, especially the roof details.

A short walk from Anping Fort, Anping Treehouse (安平樹屋) is a unique attraction. There, banyan tree roots have been left to take over a former trading company’s warehouse.

A giant white statue of Matsu, the goddess of the sea

Besides the above must-sees, some smaller attractions in Anping District include Eternal Golden Castle (二鯤鯓砲臺), Deyang Ship Destroyer (安平定情碼頭德陽艦園區), a parked US Navy Ship, Lin Mo-niang Park (林默娘公園臺) with its giant Matsu Statue, Anping Salt Beach White God (安平鹽神白沙灘公園), and Big Fish’s Blessing (大魚的祝福, a whale art installation).

For beautiful sunsets, head to Sunset Platform (觀夕平臺) or Yuguang Beach (漁光島沙灘) on Yuguang Island.

Outside the City Center

Outside the Tainan City Center, but still technically in “Tainan City” the attractions become less about history and more varied.

A large museum that looks like the White House, with a pond in front

South of the Tainan City Center, Chimei Museum (奇美博物館) is one of the most interesting, if unexpected, museums in Taiwan. The museum looks like the White House in Washington D.C. with the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica, complete with the Fountain of Apollo from Versailles in front.

The museum houses the extensive private collection of a local billionaire, include an amazing display of violins and ancient weapons. Buy your tickets online here .

A green tunnel or canopy of trees over a canal

Right next to Chimei, Ten Drum Cultural Village (十鼓文創園區) occupies a former sugar refinery. You could spend a whole day exploring its skywalk, rides, art installations, cafés, second-hand bookstore, and more. It was created by the 10 Drum Percussion Group. Get your tickets here or visit it as a part of this tour .

Just north of Anping District in Annan District, Sicao Green Tunnel (四草綠色隧道) is the best way to experience the coastal wetlands of Taijiang National Park (台江國家公園). Although the green canopy of trees over canal is a little artificial, it’s undeniably beautiful.

Looking up from the courtyard of a huge red temple, with temple halls on every side

Also in Annan, Luerhmen Mazu Temple (正統鹿耳門聖母廟) is the world’s largest temple dedicated to Matsu, goddess of fishermen and the sea. National Museum of Taiwan History (國立臺灣歷史博物館) is excellent but out-of-the-way.

Continuing north from Anan District will bring you to a few salt-related attractions on the coast. Cigu Salt Mountain (七股鹽山 or Qigu Yanshan ) is a literal mountain of salt that you can climb. You can also taste salt ice cream, salt douhua , and other snacks. Learn more about Tainan’s salt history at the Salt Museum (七股遊客中心) nearby.

A staircase leading up a mountain of salt, with a blown up deer head statue at the top

Further up the coast, almost in Chiayi, Jingzijiao Wapan Salt Fields (井仔腳瓦盤鹽田) is an extremely photogenic collection of salt fields on the coast. You can even try raking some salt or climb the tower for an especially good view. It’s free to visit and included on this tour .

If you’re in the area, might as well add Beimen Crystal Church (水晶教堂), reminiscent of the High Heeled Shoe Church in neighborhing Chiayi .

Some pyramid-shaped mounds of salt in water water fields

In the north, Laohutang Art Village (老塘湖藝術村) is an atmospheric art village, although not super easy to get to.

Guanziling (關子嶺溫泉) in the northeast is where you’ll find Taiwan’s best mud hot spring. There you can soak in silty hot spring water or even rub the mud on your body, which is good for the skin. King’s Garden Villa (景大渡假莊園) is the best place to try it.

A girl floating in a small pink tube in a muddy hot spring

Also in the hills of northeastern Tainan, Dongshan Coffee Road (175咖啡公路) is a great place to coffee plantations and cafés with beautiful surroundings. Just a few examples are here , here , and here . It’s a popular road for cycling. If you’re interested in Taiwanese coffee regions, also don’t miss Gukeng area in Yunlin .

Find a way to remote Erliao Sunrise Pavilion (台南二寮觀日亭) for sunrise. Head to Caoshan Moon World Grand Canyon (草山月世界大峽谷) for cool landscapes. Last but not least, families will enjoy Zhuozhen Fossil Museum (臺南左鎮化石園區).

Best Tainan Tours and Deals

The Klook Tainan Pass can save you a little money. It lets you choose 2-4 attractions in the city and you have 30 days to use it.

You can visit Tainan’s top attractions on this day tour from Kaohsiung . To see the salt attractions plus Ten Drum Cultural Village , try this tour . You can also hire a private driver to make a custom schedule for your Tainan trip.

Discounted tickets for Sicao Green Tunnel , Ten Drum Cultural Village , Chimei Museum , and more are available on Klook.

How to Plan Your Tainan Itinerary

An old building in Tainan with red lanterns hanging in the street

When checking travelers’ Taiwan itinerary in my Taiwan Travel Planning group , I usually recommend that they spend one night in the Tainan city center and one night in Anping District to best enjoy this city.

For Chimei Museum and/or Ten Drum Village , it makes sense to visit them either on the way to or from the Tainan HSR station, which they are close to. Otherwise, you could visit these two attractions together as a day trip from Tainan city center .

If you are want to visit off-the-beaten track spots like the salt attractions north of the city, you’ll need to the better part of a day to reach them by bus – consider to hire a driver for the day to speed things up.

If you want to visit Guanziling Hot Spring , it’s easiest to do it as a day trip or overnight trip from Chiayi City, perhaps before of after going to Alishan.

What to Eat in Tainan

Tainan has its own distinctive cuisine, which has earned it a reputation as the culinary capital of Taiwan. Some classic Taiwanese dishes started in Tainan and spread around the island, but others are still largely only found in Tainan and neighboring areas like Chiayi and Kaohsiung.

Tainan has a reputation for putting sugar in everything. Sugar was a hot commodity and status symbol in the early days of colonial Tainan. To this day, you will find that most dishes have some sweetness to them.

Looking down at a bowl of noodles with slices of eel

Some classic and modern Tainan dishes to watch out for include eel noodles (鱔魚意麵), fried shrimp/oyster rolls (蝦 / 蚵捲), danzai noodles (擔仔麵), coffin bread (棺材板), rice pudding (碗粿), milkfish soup (虱目魚湯), milkfish congee (虱目粥), and Spanish mackerel stew (土魠魚羹).

To find any of the above while exploring Tainan, I suggest that you copy-paste their Mandarin name to GoogleMaps to find vendors near you.

If you’re vegetarian or vegan, here’s my guide to finding vegetarian foods .

A busy, crowded night market in Tainan

Tainan’s night markets are a great place to try the above, and the full gamut of Taiwanese street foods. But there’s something important to know: unlike most night markets in Taiwan , each night market is open on a different night of the week.

Go to Ta-Tung Night Market on Mon/Tues/Fri, Wusheng Night Market on Wed and Garden Night Market on Thus/Sat/Sun. All are a little outside the city center. See my guide to Tainan’s night markets for all the details.

In the daytime, check out the traditional Shuixian Gong Market (水仙宮市場) in the morning and the connected Yongle Market (永樂市場), which has lots of food stalls on its east side, and excellent sushi shop right next to the temple inside Shuixian Market.

For amazing ice cream, don’t miss these two shops on the same street. Tai Cheng Fruit Shop (泰成水果店) does amazing ice cream and fruit combinations. Quan Wei Jia Ice Cream (蜷尾家甘味處散步甜食) has interesting Japanese flavors of soft serve, like oolong tea and genmaicha (brown rice green tea).

Near Tainan Station, Xu Feng Hao (旭峯號) does ice cream and fruit juices in a very Instagrammable and iconic old building. For something more peculiar, there’s even a capybara café in Tainan, called Mogu Kabi – here are other places to see capybaras in Taiwan .

At night, check out Speakeasy Bar (赤崁中藥行), which is set up to look like a traditional Chinese medicine shop, and is housed in what used to actually be one.

On Anping Old Street, try the oyster rolls here and buy some prawn crackers and dried fruits to take home.

If you visit Cigu Salt Mountain, you can try salty douhua (豆花 or dessert tofu) and ice cream, while the Salt Museum has salty coffee in its café.

When traveling to Guanziling, no local visitor would miss stopping for a whole urn-roasted chicken (甕缸雞) on the way. Just a few possible ones are here and here . They’ll give you plastic gloves to rip the chicken apart yourself.

Tainan Events

An elaborate lantern shaped like a boy doing a lion dance

In 2024, Tainan is hosting the 400-year anniversary of the arrival of the Dutch and founding of the city.

This will start with the 2024 Lantern Festival National Event , with festivities taking place in Anping district and around Tainan HSR station. See my Lantern Festival guide for all the details.

In other years, when it isn’t hosting the national event, Tainan will still have several lantern displays throughout the city, including the Yuejin Harbor Lantern Festival .

Fireworks being shot at a crowd of people who are wearing helmets and other protective gear

On the same day as the Lantern Festival, the annual Yanshui Beehive Fireworks Festival also takes place in Yanshui District of Tainan city. It is considered one of the most dangerous festivals in the world, with fireworks and bottle rocks being shot directly at crowds of people.

The Tainan Arts Festival usually falls in spring (March, April, May). Music lovers can watch for the Tainan May Jam and Tainan Summer Music Festival. For Dragon Boat Festival, Tainan’s races are usually help in Anping Canal. On Confucius’ birthday (September 28), expect festivities at the Confucius Temple in Tainan.

Winter is the best time to visit Sicao Green Tunnel and Taijiang National Park, where the rare migratory black faced spoonbill and other birds are best seen.

Last but not least, there are countless small temple fairs and parades throughout the year in Tainan, often in celebration of various gods’ birthdays. Don’t be surprised if you happen to stumble upon one. Follow the sound of firecrackers!

1-Day Private Tour of Tainan, Taiwan Itinerary

Pickup from your hotel in Tainan or Kaohsiung, Tainan railway stations or Tainan airport. Includes lunch, mineral water and insurance.

  • Tainan is where Han Chinese culture in Taiwan began, and a good part of the day will be spent in Anping, the oldest part of the city.
  • The main attraction in this seaside community is Fort Zeelandia, a stronghold built by the Dutch East India Company in the the early 1630s. It’s perhaps the best place to learn about the Netherlands’ brief but historically critical occupation of the Tainan area.
  • Nearby stands Anping Tree House, a 19th-century warehouse invaded by huge banyan trees and dubbed ‘Tainan’s Angkor Wat’.
  • Next up we’ll show you around central Tainan, where the density of historical curiosities is stupendous. Within Taiwan, Tainan is regarded as a foodie’s paradise, and our lunch will include some of the city’s most famous dishes.
  • Then we’ll head to the Confucius Temple, an austerely beautiful academy-cum-house of worship. It and several other places of interest are open until late in the evening, and especially atmospheric after dark, so extending the tour until quite late in the evening is possible if arranged in advance.
  • A craft beer on atmospheric Shennong Street or a coffee in the garden of Chihkan Tower (the other fort built by the Dutch in the 17th century) are delightful ways to end the excursion before transferring to your hotel or the transport hub of your choice.

10 Best Things To Do In Tainan (3 Day Tainan Itinerary)

By: Author Lotte

Tainan was the 2nd city we visited in Taiwan and I liked it even more than Kaohsiung. Tainan is Taiwan’s oldest and the former capital (from 1683 until 1887).

That's why there are many interesting things to see and lots of historic sites to explore. Most of the things to do in Tainan are located in the very walkable city center.

Or, do as we did and cycle your way around town!

3 day Tainan itinerary: map and highlights

We traveled to Tainan from Kenting National Park and spent 3 days in this lovely city.

Tainan was a particularly interesting city for us to visit, because of the Dutch history. I'm Dutch myself, so it's always interesting to visit places with a bit of Dutch history, though sadly, our history isn't always something to be proud of…

The city of Tainan is also famous for its many ancient temples, but there are many other worthwhile places to visit as well in this relatively small city. Check out the map below to see what to do in Tainan.

What to do in Tainan: itinerary day 1

After our excellent biking experience in Kaohsiung, we decided to continue our explorations by bike in Tainan as well (read more about the bike rental system in Tainan in the transport section below).

City God Temple

Taiwan Fu City God Temple Tainan

We cycled past the colorful City God Temple but didn't go inside as it was very busy with local people. I never want to intrude too much when people are worshiping, whichever religion it may be.

Koxinga's Shrine

Peaceful Koxinga Shrine in Tainan

Up next was Koxinga's Shrine, I particularly liked the beautiful garden.

An interesting piece of history: Koxinga conquered the Dutch who had established several outposts in Taiwan and subsequently founded his own dynasty (the Kingdom of Tungning).

Great South Gate

We continued to the Great South Gate. While the gate itself was quite nice, I loved the tree (pictured on the right) which is slowly but surely taking over the wall!

Great South Gate Tainan

Confucius Temple

Our last stop of the day was the Confucius Temple, we strolled around the gardens and admired the beautifully decorated buildings, don't you love those doors!

The complex was built in 1665 and it's impressive how well-preserved the buildings and intricate carvings are.

Confucius Temple in Tainan

Things to see in Tainan: itinerary day 2

Hayashi department store.

Tainan has a reasonably walkable historical centre so we started our second day on foot. It was just a short walk from our hotel  to the famous Hayashi Department Store, built during the Japanese rule of Taiwan.

When the store had just opened, people used to queue up to ride the elevator, a novelty for that time (1932)!

Red doors at the Confucius Temple in Tainan

Across Hayashi Department Store is the Land Bank, an impressive-looking building that's modeled after a Greek temple.

Land Bank Tainan Taiwan

Grand Mazu Temple

From the Land Bank, we walked to the Grand Matsu Temple (also known as Datianhou or Grand Mazu Temple).

This beautiful and colorful temple was built in 1684 for Mazu, Goddess of the Sea. The Mazu Temple is a very popular attraction in Tainan and a national monument.

Colorful MaZu temple Tainan

Chikan Tower

Across the temple is the Chikan Tower, another interesting tourist attraction and rumored to have a secret tunnel leading all the way to Fort Zeelandia…

The Chihkan Tower is a historic site in Tainan

Next to the Chikan tower was a bike rental station and we hopped on a bike and cycled to the Anping area, the other district in Tainan you can't miss!

We cycled along the channel which offered some great city views.

View over Tainan from the river

It's around 5 kilometers from the Chikan Towers to Fort Zeelandia, you could walk as well but we preferred our bikes.

Fort Zeelandia (also known as Anping Fort)

Fort Zeelandia is a historic sight to visit in Tainan

For me, Fort Zeelandia was the highlight of our Tainan itinerary because I find it fascinating to imagine how people explored the world centuries ago.

Long before the arrival of planes, TV, and social media… Sailing into the unknown, not knowing if you would ever return to your home country…

It takes real courage and an adventurous spirit to sign up for such a journey!

Anyway, I digress. Fort Zeelandia was built by the V.O.C. (Dutch East India Company) on the shores of Southwest Taiwan in the early 17th century.

The fort was used as a trading outpost for several years, but eventually the Dutch were defeated and left Taiwan.

The fort was our final stop of the day, from the Anping district we cycled back to our hotel.

If you plan to visit multiple historical sites in Tainan, such as Anping Old Fort, Anping Tree House, Chihkan Tower, and the Eternal Golden Castle, you can save money with the Tainan Historic Sites Pass .

Places to visit in Tainan: itinerary day 3

National museum of taiwan history.

National Museum of Taiwan in Tainan

On our third day in Tainan, we visited the National Museum of Taiwan History. We cycled there (about 8 kilometers) in the early morning and spent the majority of the day learning about the history of Taiwan.

Did you know this little island has been occupied by the Portuguese, the Dutch, the Chinese, and the Japanese?! I did not, I learned that and much more in the museum, a day well spent.

Get the excellent audio guide! We bought a combination ticket for 2 people including entrance fee and 2 audio guides for just 250NT.

National Museum of Taiwan in Tainan

The best time to visit Tainan

We visited Tainan in mid-May and had nice weather. It was quite humid and hot, but we didn't have any rain.

Monsoon season starts at the end of May and continues until September. During monsoon season it's very humid and rainy so these months are not the best for a trip to Tainan.

Keep in mind that the winter months (December – February) can get relatively cold (around 10 degrees Celsius).

Altogether, the best months to visit Tainan are March/April and October/November . During these months temperatures are comfortable (around 25 degrees) and the chances of rain are the lowest.

Tainan travel budget

Average daily travel budget Tainan Taiwan

As you can see in the itinerary above, we did a lot of sightseeing in Tainan. However, this doesn't mean a visit to Tainan will break the bank.

In fact, it's very easy to visit Tainan on a budget, during our 3 days in Tainan we spent approximately €50 per day (for us as a couple, so just €25 per person!).

We ate delicious local food, drank bubble tea, and tried stinky tofu (not my favorite). Below you can find more information about our accommodation and how to get around Tainan city.

Street art in Tainan

Where to stay in Tainan – Tie Dao Hotel

We felt Tie Dao Hotel was excellent value for money: we only paid €17 per night for a small, but newly renovated, room.

The location of the hotel is great, across Tainan train station and next to a T-bike station (Tainan's public bike rental).

We stayed in a spotless room with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was modern and the shower had good water pressure and a constant temperature.

Towels and toiletries were provided, and there were hot and cold water dispensers in the hallway. WiFi wasn't great but overall it was much more than we expected for the price we paid.

Tainan Tie Dao Hotel

Important note: we first got room 1319 on the 13th floor, which was being renovated at the time of our stay. However, I asked for a different room because the room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. We got a renovated room on the 2nd floor (219) instead, which was very clean and didn't smell at all.

How to get around Tainan: transportation

Street with lanterns in Tainan

Cycling is very popular in Taiwan, there are great public bike rental systems in place in Kaohsiung, Taipei , Taichung , and, to our delight, in Tainan as well.

Since we're from the Netherlands, we're used to cycling everywhere.

So for us, this was the perfect way to explore these Taiwanese cities while getting some (much-needed) exercise in the process (because of all the delicious food we ate in Taiwan).

In Tainan the public bike rental service is called T-Bike, you can find more information on this website . There is an app available (in Chinese) that you can use to locate a bike rental station.

You can use an EasyCard to register ( read more about the EasyCard here and in my Kaohsiung post ) or pay with a credit card.

In order to register your EasyCard at a T-bike station, you'll need a Taiwanese number.

Unfortunately, you can only register one EasyCard per Taiwanese phone number in Tainan. We wanted to rent two bikes, so we used one EasyCard to rent a bike and our credit card for the second one.

Top Things to Do in Tainan Taiwan

Tainan things to do: in conclusion

That’s everything about our 3-day trip to Tainan, the old capital! It ended up being one of our favorite places in Taiwan and I hope this article has given you an idea of which places to visit in Tainan.

If you've got more time to spend in Tainan, here are some other popular places to add to your itinerary:

  • Anping Treehouse: this is a former warehouse that's been covered by a huge banyan tree.
  • Tainan Park: this is a lovely green park and a very pleasant space to relax or have a picnic.
  • Tainan Art Museum: situated in the West Central District, this interesting museum features local artwork.

Will be heading to Tainan in December! Thanks for sharing this wonderful guide Lotte.

Very welcome! Enjoy Tainan and don't forget to eat lots of delicious food while you are there;-)

Wednesday 28th of June 2017

Excellent, informative post. So interesting to hear about the Dutch history in Taiwan, I wonder if any influence on the language or culture was left behind. I also had a curious experience exploring Hong Kong, which is an old British colony - its a wonderful, fascinating culture but I still stumbled across a traditional British afternoon tea, which was an offer I couldn't refuse.

Thursday 29th of June 2017

Thank you Mark! I don't think much of the Dutch culture was left behind, but definitely some architecture and Dutch names. Haha, British afternoon teas are the best:-). Do you have the name of the place? Would love to check it out next time I'm in Hong Kong!

Hi Lotte, I never knew Taiwan had any Dutch influence? Fascinating. Your countrymen were great explorers though. I did know of the Dutch influence in Bali for many years before the Balinese became independent. Loving the pics. Tainan looks like a fun place to visit. Thanks for sharing :) Ryan

Monday 26th of June 2017

Thank you Ryan! Haha, yes the Dutch love to explore... Indonesia was a colony back in the days, as was Suriname (which we traded for New York, in hindsight that wasn't the smartest decision;-).

Day 1 / Taipei - Hualien

After leaving Taipei City, we’ll head down the picturesque east coast of Taiwan, past beautiful beaches and towering cliffs before reaching Taroko Gorge National Park. We’ll spend the afternoon hiking through canyons, past raging rivers and cascading waterfalls before calling it a day and heading to our hotel in seaside Hualien City. That evening you’ll have the option to venture out on your own to dine at of Hualien’s relaxed night markets.

Day 2 / Hualien - Taitung

On the second day, we’ll continue our southward journey, only with a slight twist. Whereas yesterday was all about the coast, after leaving Hualien we’ll head inland and drive through the bucolic East Rift Valley, a wide expanse of greenery with towering mountains on both sides. After lunch, we’ll take a few hours to cycle on exclusive bike paths that pass through, rice paddies & the flower filled fields of local farmers. That evening, we’ll reach the city of Taitung, a laid back town with a definite tribal vibe.

Day 3 / Taitung - Kaohsiung - Tainan

It's the middle day of the tour, so it makes sense that today we'll be curving through Taiwan's southern banana belt region before turning northward up the western coast. We'll spend much of the day exploring the grounds, pavilions and statues of Taiwan's Fo Guang Shan Buddhist monastery, the largest of its kind in Taiwan. Afterward, we'll head to Tainan and explore Taiwan's spiritual capital (and oldest city), stopping to experience some of the city's famous culinary delights.

Day 4 / Tainan - Chiayi

On Day four we'll dive in for a deep exploration of Tainan, Taiwan's oldest and arguably most culturally significant city. We'll walk along cobblestone streets built during the Qing dynasty, visiting ancient temples and fortresses once belonging to various colonial powers looking for a toehold in Formosa. In the afternoon we'll visit the Guanziling Mud Spring for a healing soak before heading north to spend the evening at the tour's next port of call, the town of Chiayi.

Day 5 / Chayi - Lugang - Taichung

After breakfast in Chiayi, we'll head out to the old town of Lugang, which boasts 200+ temples dedicated to a variety of folk deities. We'll wander the old streets stopping to explore some of the town's most important temples (including the Longshan and Matsu temples) before delving further into the towns craft and culinary traditions. After spending the day immersed in history, we'll head out to the art filled city of Taichung.

Day 6 / Taichung - Sun Moon Lake - Taipei

On the tour's final day, we'll head to one of the most beautiful spots in Taiwan, majestic Sun Moon Lake, whose azure water and picture-perfect shoreline have inspired poets for centuries. Enjoy the scenery by taking a leisure boat and visiting the top attractions around the lake. We’ll visit the beautiful Antique Assam Tea Farm and experience the nostalgia vibe. If you are charmed by the Taiwan tea, bring some with you before heading back to Taipei.

  • Description

Taipei – Sun Moon Lake

On the first morning of your Taiwan round-the-island tour, you will depart from central Taipei and travel to the heart of the island, Sun Moon Lake National Scenic Area .

Sun Moon Lake, the largest freshwater lake on the island, is divided by Lalu Island. The eastern side of the lake resembles the sun, while the western side resembles the crescent moon, giving the lake its unique name. This picturesque area is also the ancestral home of the Thao people, one of Taiwan’s indigenous groups. With its rich indigenous culture and abundant natural beauty, Sun Moon Lake has earned its place as one of Taiwan’s premier destinations.

Sun Moon Lake View from the Top of Ci'en Pagoda

After lunch, your journey continues with a scenic bus tour around Sun Moon Lake, where you’ll explore the most renowned attractions in this area. Begin with a visit to Ita Thao , an indigenous village that offers insights into the culture and lifestyle of the Thao people. Then, marvel at the grandeur of Ci’en Pagoda , an iconic Sun Moon Lake landmark constructed by the late President Chiang Kai-shek in memory of his mother.

Following your visit to Ci’en Pagoda, your exploration of Sun Moon Lake continues with stops at two significant temples. First, you’ll arrive at Xuanzang Temple , a serene Buddhist sanctuary dedicated to the esteemed monk Xuanzang. Then, your journey takes you to Wenwu Temple , an imposing Taoist temple featuring three halls devoted to the Martial God and the God of Literature. With the expert commentary of your tour guide, you’ll gain deeper insights into Sun Moon Lake, enriching your appreciation of the area’s history and significance.

Overnight: Fleur de Chine Hotel – Mountain View Room,  Sun Moon Lake (5-star) / Le Méridien Taichung, Taichung (5-star) / a similar hotel

Sun Moon Lake – Tainan - Kaohsiung

Kick off the second day of your 5-day Taiwan adventure with a delightful breakfast, setting the tone for another day of exploration. Hop on the bus and make your way to Tainan, the oldest city in Taiwan, celebrated for its abundance of historic buildings and profound historical heritage.

Your adventure proceeds with a visit to Fort Zeelandia , constructed by the Dutch East India Company during their 38-year administration of western Taiwan. The original fortress faced near destruction by the British army in the 19th century but was subsequently rebuilt by the Japanese. 

Fort Zeelandia

After exploring Fort Zeelandia, take a leisurely walk along Anping Old Street . Situated on the east side of Fort Zeelandia, this historic street was established by the Dutch over 300 years ago and holds the distinction of being the first officially named street in Taiwan.

Originally constructed by the Dutch in 1653, the fortress underwent destruction and subsequent reconstruction during the Qing Dynasty. Throughout the Japanese colonization period, it was rebuilt multiple times. Today, Fort Provintia stands as one of the most iconic landmarks in the city of Tainan.

Fort Provintia

The Sacrificial Rites Martial Temple, among the earliest Guan Di Temples, stands as a testament to ancient government sacrificial rites. It holds the esteemed status of a first-class national historic site, drawing countless worshippers. Among its revered deities is Yue Lao, the God of Marriage. Devotees flock to pray for marriages guided by destiny, with some even sending express mail directly to Yue Lao through a special mailbox within the temple grounds. 

The Sacrificial Rites Martial Temple (

Finally, you will visit that Grand Mazu Temple, is commonly known as Taiwan’s inaugural government-built Mazu Temple.

Upon crossing the temple threshold, your eyes will be drawn to a magnificent golden statue of Mazu. Flanking her are the embodiments of Clairvoyance (eyes that see a thousand miles) and Clairaudience (ears tuned to whispers on the wind), formerly malevolent spirits redeemed by Mazu’s compassionate guidance. They now harness their powers to aid Mazu in her benevolent endeavors. Similar to the traditions at the Sacrificial Rites Martial Temple, worshippers, both men and women, gather at the Grand Mazu Temple to pay homage to Yue Lao, the God of Marriage. Seeking his blessings, they hope to expedite the journey towards finding their life partners.

Grand Mazu Temple

When it comes to preserving cultural artifacts within the Confucius Temple, the inscriptions documenting each period of repair, the horizontally inscribed boards bestowed by rulers of various dynasties, and ceremonial and musical instruments spanning from the early Manchu Dynasty to the present day are carefully maintained. These priceless artifacts from history and culture warrant careful appreciation for their profound significance and lasting impact.
