Where to stay in Tainan

The long established city of Tainan offers plentiful accommodations for the range of visitors it receives each year. Primarily located to the west of the main train station, hotels range from the luxurious to the basic, and everywhere in between. Overlooking green areas or the canals, the most glamorous among the options here come in old and new buildings, while the more budget-friendly--including youth hostels, guesthouses, and simple hotels--occupy side streets close to the main transport hubs and historic buildings.

  • We've been visiting this museum since it was housed in a building on the Chimei factory campus. The new building is a big upgrade in the museum's presentation. If you're fond of museums, it is worth a...  more »

  • I suppose there are better museums out there, but this one was very nice. There are exhibits on a little bit of everything. I really liked the origami exhibit, but that was only temporary.  more »

  • This Museum offers variety of subjects all Under One Roof. It has a nice mix of everything including natural history, art, music and civilization. It may not have as many things as the New York Natural History Museum or the Metropolitan Museum of Art but I think you will have a very satisfying vist and and maybe learn a few things..
  • Great place to visit😆 specially those who like museum and history.U can see and learn about histories of painting, weapon, animals, music, etc.Don't miss the Origami Center, it very interesting part. Excellent service from their Guides👍. Camera not allow in here.
  • Amazing museum. A must visit POI, you will never regret for coming here. Pay attention to every sculpture's story, especially Rodin's gallery.
  • This is the most impressive private museum I have ever been to. Aside from the huge animal collection, I especially enjoy the weapons collection. The set up for the orchestra/musical instruments exhibit is brilliant so definitely check it out. At every hour there is a 5-minute recorded performance (different song each time) so I would recommend checking the time table. The site is gorgeous. I saw a lot of couples taking their wedding photos outside.
  • Is unbelieable that they keep millions years back history & art works so beautiful where you can find another piece in the world..
