Anping Gubao Ancient Street, Tainan
(3/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
A road steeped in history, the paved thoroughfare of Anping Gubao Ancient Street bustles with shops and stalls selling a plethora of food, knicknacks, and souvenirs. The street was established by Dutch settlers over 300 years ago, and although much of the architecture has disappeared since those days, it remains one of the oldest roads in Taiwan, and still serves as a commercial hub for the city. Sample some of the traditional cuisines on offer, including "coffin toast" and other unusual dishes, and keep your eyes peeled for a strange shop on the street that sells nothing but ornamental owls. Work out when and for how long to visit Anping Gubao Ancient Street and other Tainan attractions using our handy Tainan vacation generator.

  •  The atmosphere is good, but shops alike. Was a famous prawn crackers. Driver - star for going into the most popular shops went into the shop, but different. In Taiwan, is that whether or not fit in the mouth tasting is "no!" And so it was said. Though lots bought 1 bag 50 so that I think fits the mouth... and thought.

  • 孔廟老街.安平古堡老街.這次來逛老街逛的很過癮.近年來和老公走中和出發近郊的老街,外出渡假時附近的老街,感受古老街道的美和風味.老街中的餐飲很可口.炸蛋麵是一次新嚐試.來到台南還去白河白影文化城.讚. 
  • 老街上除了蚵卷跟蝦卷要排長隊外,有一樣東西排更長,就是蜜餞了,這間老店真的排很久的! 不想排隊的我們也只能老街上找小吃了,但是走著走著覺得還是以前的老街比較好逛,現在都是重覆性的東西,好多間蜜餞!對於不愛蜜餞的我就真的興趣不大,之後應該只會在平日來走走散散步,假日人實在太多了!
