One of Taiwan's best-preserved historical towns, Hengchun Old Town retains its original city gates and ramparts.

  • The remains of the city walls is very historical. Some repairs being so far established there, able to walk on the ramparts. Went to the gate is a narrow gate that was taking its toll both cars and people.

  • ... A wall. You can go around the old town on the largest part of the old city wall. Sometimes very elaborately restored. Also the city centre offers plenty of small restaurants and food stalls. Just drift away.

  • 就是一個保存蠻完整的城門,沒什麼太特別的,不過算是有紀念價值,整個恆春也因為這些城門很有古色古香的感覺,可以拍照  more »

  • 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.
  • A old structure stand with histories of Hengchun town. The must visit place for your Kenting Trip.
