  • There are a lot of Tibetan books in the children's area, and the Christmas tree is fitted with Christmas decorations. It is often better to show the subject, you can go with the soup Dezhang Park, Fire team, Wu Park, Nightingale Cuisine, and so on the planning tour, and then a little bit of Lin Hundred, at least can stroll half day.

  • Admission is free. However, entrust drinks at the counter is not good. Is quite large and do not know Chinese and is pulling fun 8 percent. Come taste the atmosphere when you could do in Office? I don't think it can stay whole day for those who have the knowledge, of course, quality.

  • It's a relatively new renovation project in Tainan, the first city in Taiwan. Architecture wise it's worth visiting. It terms of museum contents, it's average. But it's also considered good as local amenities providing reading and relaxing environment.
  • The building has great historical value, although what's inside are for people who are into literature. Contents are mostly described in chinese as well. It is free though, so you can go if you have extra free time. If not, just admire it from outside and go to confucius temple instead.
  • Despite it being a museum of Taiwanese literature, it's certainly worth a visit for English speakers. Most displays offer a bilingual description of the fascinating history behind the various stories and types of literature. The entire building is also a really cool visit to see the architecture. Many sections of the modern restorations are cut away so that a visitor may view into the history of the building. If you're looking for a place to write or read, directly across from the gift store are a series of tables. After visiting all of thee exhibits one can't help but be urged to reflect, and this area was perfect for it. Many people were also there, students studying and writing, all in complete silence. It was almost a magical experience writing there. Certainly worth the trip alone if you're a writer. Overall, it's great stop in an area not usually famed for its tourist destinations, and it's close to so many other great attractions so you can easily make a full and worthwhile day around the area.
  • The building itself is beautiful and has been lovingly restored. It's free to enter, so worth popping in, but most exhibits are in Mandarin and less comprehensible to tourists.
  • Funky exhibitions (once accidently ran across saw 3 un-remarked on Picasso original sketches here). Great people watching. V v rich comfortable architecture inside and out & fantastic coffeeshop for meeting people in.
