Tainan

3.6

Phoenix City

The oldest city in the country, Tainan stood as the island's capital during feudal times. Relics and reminders of its previous centrality to Taiwanese life remain well-preserved, with a number of temples and historic buildings representing some of the main places to visit in Tainan. Many traditions still hold their ground here against the modernizing aspects of the city, with marriage and coming-of-age ceremonies, days of worship, and festivities still observed as they have been for centuries. The retaining of its cultural heritage has been matched by the spread of its cuisine throughout the land and further afield, with many well-known Taiwanese dishes--including shrimp crackers and oyster omelettes--originating here. Tainan is in Taiwan. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Tainan trip itinerary using our Taiwan route maker site .
