Anping Fort (Anping gubao), Anping

3.8
Brush up on your local history with an excursion to Anping Fort (Anping gubao), a 17th-century fort constructed by the Dutch East India Company. Developed over a 10-year period between 1624 and 1634, the fort became a central hub for trade in East Asia throughout Dutch and Japanese occupations of Tainan. Follow well-kept paths to some of the few surviving remnants of the original fort, including the red brick city walls and oyster kiln. Much of the site is newly built, housing a collection of museums for you to wander through, learning the fort’s extensive history. Climb the steps of the observation tower for some of the town’s best views, and make the most of the predominantly English displays.

  • With the growth of the years, the age of the month, from the previous very do not like to visit the ancient miracles, how few times, but also enjoy the preservation of the ancient miracles in a quiet, this really can come to walk, let the mood Shen.

  • It's full of green plants, and the eyeballs look comfortable. I also met a lot of teachers with students to take classes, talk about Scuting, very interesting place.

  • You should definitely go. The Tainan station ticket gate at is a little bit confusing. You must not go through the underpass. Out of the gate and look far beyond to the left a little better. Buses may seem far away. Take the return you get on the bus No. 99, 88, was at Chihkan Tower. Also when riding down the CardTech IC. Can I attach a bus stop on the way back. Post (Post Office) is a landmark. FamilyMart also marked?

  • A cool piece of Taiwanese history just outside Central Tainan. The exhibits usually have English translations (though the quality varies) and there is enough to see to take up a few hours. Just outside the fort is a temple dedicated to one of the Chinese sea gods which is worth checking out while you're in the area.
  • Pretty interesting place. I was able to learn a lot about the history of Taiwan and take pictures with many of the pieces of the old fort left behind. It's definitely a cool experience and theres a light house kind of building where you can see some nice views at the top. Took around 1 to 1.5 hours to read everything and walk around.
  • Spacious place, well kept gardens and surrounds, exhibits have both Japanese and English translations (always a welcome thing). Great to bring family and children. Outside the fort is like a mini market where you can buy snacks and souvenirs.
  • This is a really cool place to check out for a short time. See the old buildings, newer restorarions and wonderful trees and gardens. Right outside is a bustling market full souvenirs and street food. This place is great to bring kids to.
  • Must see area in Tainan. Lots of nice looking buildings (although recently restored) and good explanation of it's history on-site. Also a lively neighborhood around the site.
