Anping Gubao Ancient Street, Tainan

3.0
#5 of 19 in Shopping in Tainan
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.
