Shennong Street, Tainan

3.6
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. Though only around 100 m (324 ft) long, the strip features many shops selling antiques, handmade crafts, and jewelry, as well as restaurants and bars. 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.

  • Maybe it's because it's the usual time to play, and it's probably because there's no business in the neighborhood, but there are many characteristics of the store door is very distinctive, and in this photo is not wrong, I like the door is the use of magnetic brick parts, other houses can be seen in the old Taiwan's architectural features are not wrong, Some doors have buildings like Australia.

  • During the day than at night? Things are lit up, evening and checked into the HOTEL, take early dinner went. Shop lined with 200-year-old houses, renovated with without knowing at least people and we went in a group of quiet, and where? In the shops you eat that you can buy, listen, and told me. But also lost to people who taught me, a taxi driver, was chasing me, told me way further. Shen Nong district than I felt the warmth of the people. Shennong Street, small passages in the quiet, was lit by illuminated only by.
