Hengchun Old Town, Pingtung

(3.5/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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 holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Hengchun Old Town and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 沿著恆春古城牆漫步,感受南國悠閒風情。登上古城門眺望恆春市區,別有一番風味。來到恆春不妨來欣賞與這小鎮共同存在的城門,城門已成為恆春風光的一部份。  more »
  • 如果專程為古城而來,那麼是會有點失望的,雖然是可以走上城牆,但城內城外都已是新的建築,而且城牆不高,景色也不十分吸引,不過若是住宿在恒春古城內,那麼就值得一去  more »
  • 城牆保存得很好,有一大段可以讓小孩跑跑、爬上爬下,所以天氣好的時候,很適合帶小孩來跑跑。但是如果太陽太大就不適合,因為沒甚麼遮陽的地方。  more »

  • Busy old place. Bus from Kaohsiung stops here while going to kenting. Beautiful beaches very near to this place. Many hotels and minsu's around, but have to book them much earlier, otherwise very difficult to find one on the spot. Also near to the national marine biology museum.
  • Western gate. A signature historical building of the Heng Chun Old Town, visit the remaining three of you are interested!
  • Characterful old town, bustling and full of life. Opted to stay here instead of Kenting proper, and glad we did! Lots of hostels, tons of food options 😋
  • Good for a night walk along the wall surrounding the town.
  • Cute beautiful gate from the old day.
