Chihkan Tower (Fort Provintia), Tainan

(3.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1653, Chihkan Tower (Fort Provintia) represents a Dutch outpost that has been preserved since the days of colonization. This attraction was named by the Dutch after a nearby indigenous village, which is now called Tainan. Though this site was surrendered to the Koxinga and then demolished by an earthquake in the 1800s, it has since been rebuilt. This new structure served at the capital of the island and later opened to the public for tours. Take note of the site's architectural value as well as its library.

  • Around 11 pm when we had a very lively atmosphere. If you visit at this time, facility tours, as well as around the food and beverage outlets are open. Together with southern gourmet, tourism can be.

  • 很可惜,一個對台灣歷史這麼重要的古跡,卻只留下個空瞉子. 三十幾年前曾來看過,記憶中對鄭成功收復台灣著墨甚多,現在對過往的歷史好像沒什麼用心,可能還有倒退. 個人覺得相當可惜,至少應將鄭成功復台的史跡,及赤崁樓相關史跡好好擴充,讓大家來此可以有更多收獲. 
  • 赤嵌樓的建築修建良好,也保存相關歷史文物,雖有導覽解說員,館內介紹也很詳盡,適合成人及學生前往參觀了解台南早期歷史及殖民時期介紹。
