Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Take in the trendy atmosphere of Shennong Street. One of the best-preserved streets in the city, it commemorates a great emperor whom people revered as a deity after his death.

Taste traditional Taiwanese cuisine, or take a walk to the temple at the end, dedicated to the emperor. Consider visiting at night, when the street really comes alive.

  • This is one of the historical street in Tainan city. This place has many stored which sells handmade stuff and also some of the Interesting snacks. Good place to walk around in the street and get some cool pics.
  • This is an historic area of Tainan with many well-preserved old houses - think large wooden beams, high ceiling and wooden windows! Since the city government zoned the area, it became pedestrian friendly with many hidden gems! Discover artisan craft stores, vintage cafes and great restaurants!
  • Beautiful mix of old and new shophouses with games and all sorts of funky goods! Many uniquely-designed merchandise available.
  • Nice old alley call Sheng nong street. A mixture of old and new all captured in this 300m long alley. Some of the treasures lies inside the shop where the design and decor give a refreshing idea to design.
  • Love the atmosphere here. Old-looking tiny shops selling souvenirs and little vintage-style stuff. I went there at around 3 or 4 PM, not much cafe are open. I suggest going there at night time to see the street lit up.
