Hengchun Old Town, Pingtung County

(140+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
One of Taiwan's best-preserved historical towns, Hengchun Old Town retains its original city gates and ramparts. Stroll along parts of the original 2,500 m (8,202 ft) long, 13 m (42 ft) high city wall that once completely surrounded the city. When passing through, make sure to visit each of the gates and take in views over the entire city from the watchtowers above. Throngs of tourists give the old quarter a distinct buzz, which carries over in its vibrant nightlife and pristine beaches. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Pingtung County holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Hengchun Old Town and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • An old wall with 4 gates on 4 different direction, east, west, north, south. It was very quiet, no tourist around. We just drove around the walls.  more »
  • Not touristy like Kenting town, but still some good places to eat and get your bubble tea fix. The onion ice cream is a must-have.  more »

  • More important than the other three gates since most of the traffic goes past it everyday. Looks like the Hengchun's modern gate entrance. Majestic look, lots of people take pictures under it everyday.
  • An Heng chun ancient Gate buiding .. so great
  • Just to be clear, it's an old gate. Which is cool as a piece of history, but don't plan too much time here.
  • A signature historical building of the Heng Chun Old Town, visit the remaining three of you are interested!
  • If you like the historical buildings, visit all four gates.
